Musical Variety

The “Bach: Before and Beyond” music series directed by Walter Klauss, an organ recitalist, music professor, and conductor, will return to the Old Whalers Church in Sag Harbor on Sunday at 3 p.m. Titled “Celestial and Terrestrial,” the concert will feature the Accord Treble Choir, a group of nine women whose a cappella repertoire ranges from medieval music to 20th and 21st-century composers.

The program will include Estonian, Hungarian, Basque, and Indian compositions, as well as African-American spirituals and choral works by Samuel Barber and David Douglas, an East Hampton composer. Tickets are $20 at the door or at the Romany Kramoris Gallery in Sag Harbor.

All About Guitars

The Smith Ventura Duo will perform “Guitarmania!” — a concert on the development of the acoustic guitar and its literature — on Saturday at 1 p.m. at the East Hampton Library. The program will range from the 16th-century Renaissance guitar to the 20th-century Martin-style dreadnought. James Smith and David Ventura will play replica and modern instruments.

Zima! Returns

Originally scheduled for March 10 but postponed because of inclement weather, Zima! — aninteractive outdoor scavenger hunt created by the Neo-Political Cowgirls — will take place at the Quogue Wildlife Refuge on Sunday from 1 to 3 p.m.

Premiered at Pussy’s Pond in Springs in 2012 and most recently presented in Montauk, Zima! sends audience members in search of wild characters hidden in the landscape who provide clues to the solution of a mystery. Scavengers can set off between 1 and 2 p.m.

Warm drinks and cookies will be available for participants in the Nature Center. Tickets, which cost $25, or $15 for those under 18, are at npcowgirls.org. The wildlife refuge and the Neo-Political Cowgirls, a nonprofit dance theater company founded and directed by Kate Mueth, will share proceeds.
