Palaver Strings will perform at 3:30 and 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 7, at Mayo Street Arts, 10 Mayo St., in Portland.

Portland’s musician-led ensemble presents an offering from its Beehive Chamber Series called Painted Dreams. The performance is intended to invoke sunnier times despite being in the depths of winter. Your ears will be treated to the sublime sounds of Reena Esmail’s violin and viola duo “Nayida,” along with Jeffrey Mumford’s “A Veil of Liquid Diamonds” and finally Tchaikovsky’s sextet piece “Souvenir de Florence.”

Tickets cost $15 in advance, $18 at the door, or $22 preferred seating.
