Sybarite5, an eclectic string quintet, will be opening this Friday and Saturday at The South Miami-Dade Cultural Arts Center Cabaret series. The show will take place in the black box and will include other acts and performances.

This quintet is known for its dynamic variety of style from playing classics by Mozart to edgier pieces by Radiohead. 
The group is currently on their US tour after releasing Everything in its Right Place, an album filled with string versions of Radiohead songs. 
The clever name "Sybarite5" derives from the luxurious and hedonistic inhibitors of the city Sybaris who would lure their enemies with music. 
Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 the day of the show and can be bought online at www.smdcac.org.
