Durham
The Mallarmé Chamber Players
Kirby Horton Hall, Sarah P. Duke Gardens—Join the Mallarmé Chamber Players for a Sunday afternoon celebration of California composers and wines at their annual fundraising gala. The Durham-based ensemble, which claims 25 members and 25 years of experience, will be represented by a quintet that includes cellist Fred Raimi (also of Ciompi Quartet) and Debra Reuter-Pivetta, principal flutist of the Greensboro Symphony Orchestra. The program features Gabriela Frank's Sueños de Chambi, a set of pieces for flute and piano inspired by Martin Chambi's photography; UNC music professor Allen Anderson's Held in the Weave trio for piano and strings; Benjamin Lees' Tapestry for flute, clarinet, cello and piano; and recent Pulitzer Prize-winner Steve Reich's Vermont Counterpoint for flute and recorded sounds, in its North Carolina premiere. Rounding out the tony ambiance, the Chapel Hill Wine Co. will showcase the wares of several California wineries, served with cheeses and other complementary dishes. In this light, the $50 tickets don't seem outrageous—especially for a program including a local Reich premiere, and the chance to help fund an adventurous coalition of local musicians. It starts at 3 p.m., but seating is limited, so you'll want to reserve a ticket ahead of time via mallarmemusic.org. —Brian Howe


Raleigh
Jimmy Herring Band
Lincoln Theatre—Born and raised in Fayetteville, Jimmy Herring was the founding guitarist of Col. Bruce Hampton's Aquarium Rescue Unit and has spent the past decade slinging his axe with some of the jam scene's biggest names, including the Allman Brothers, The Dead and Widespread Panic. No surprise, then, that Herring's first effort as a band leader—last year's Lifeboat—is an extended affair of instrumental jazz fusion that pleased the jazz and jam worlds. The first tour to bear his name includes the album's rhythm section—Allman Brothers bassist Oteil Burbridge and Leftover Salmon drummer Jeff Sipe, both of whom played with Herring in Aquarium Rescue Unit. Tribal Tech keyboardist Scott Kinsey and accomplished post-bop saxophonist/ M-Base pioneer Greg Osby join the band. Stretching the night over two sets, the Lifeboat mates will delve into selections from its captain's 10-track debut ("The Jungle Book Overture," perhaps), nugs from "influential records" of the '60s and '70s (Dead ditties, perhaps?), and cuts from each member's body of work (some ARU tunes, for sure). The show starts at 8 p.m. and tickets are $20-$22. —Spencer Griffith
