The Santa Barbara Museum of Art (SBMA) will present a chamber music concert by Miró Quartet, 7:30 p.m. Thursday, March 2 in SBMA’s Mary Craig Auditorium, 1130 State St.

Formed in 1995, the Austin, Texas-based Miró Quartet, is a celebrated American string quartet that has performed on concert states around the globe.

The Miró is quartet-in-residence at Chamber Music Northwest in Portland, Oregon; and Orcas Island Chamber Music Festival in Washington state.

Miró Quartet will perform Haydn’s “Quartet in B-flat major, Op. 64, No. 3,” Caroline Shaw’s “Microfictions,” and Antonin Dvořák’s “Quartet in G major, Op. 106.”
