Strung Out? Why not start the New Year with a relaxing afternoon of string music? Chamber Music Tulsa presents an evening with the Enso Quartet at the John H. Williams Theatre, Tulsa PAC, 2nd & Cincinnati. The word enso comes from the Zen depiction of a circle, signifying the unification of perfection and imperfection. The Quartet keeps this Japanese ideal in mind as it performs a variety of pieces from Haydn, Hugo Wolf, and more. The Enso Quartet includes violinists Maureen Nelson and John Marcus, violist Melissa Reardon and cellist Richard Belcher. Music begins at 3pm. Tickets range from $5-$25.

Architects Attract. This is the final day to view "Oklahoma Moderne: The Art and Design of Olinka Hrdy," the constructivism, art deco and Czech folk art exhibit by Oklahoma native Olinka Hrdy, (1902-1987) at Price Tower Arts Center, 510 Dewey Ave., in Bartlesville. Reflecting her architectural and ornamental style, Hrdy's wall murals got the attention of architects Frank Lloyd Wright and Bruce Goff, who commissioned a cycle of nine music themed murals for his 1929 Riverside Drive project. Although the murals are no longer in existence, the exhibit showcases her working drawings. This project for Goff eventually led to future commissions including the stage curtain and entryway mural for the Historic Brady Theater. Hrdy's accomplished career as an industrial and commercial designer kept her in Hollywood, Calif., before coming home to Prague, Okla., in 1987. $4 admission. Call 336-4949 or visit pricetower.org for more information.
