Laughter and applause from B Street Theater audiences aren’t the only sounds pulsing with The Sofia. You also can hear music there. World-class music, no less.

Consider these back-to-back shows weekend after next: Grammy-winning vocalist/pianist Diane Schuur at 7 p.m. on Feb. 25, and Scottish trio Talisk at 7 p.m. on Feb. 26.

Here’s what B Street’s website has to say about the former:

“On her latest recording ‘Running On Faith,’ Schuur arranges music by some of her favorite performers and songwriters; from Miles Davis to Percy Mayfield to Paul Simon, all with her distinctive, jazzy charm. According to Schuur, ‘I’ve been focusing on the condition of our world and selected songs that make a statement about what is, along with songs of hope, about what can be.’ Showcasing music from ‘Running On Faith,’ Schuur’s performance will include blues, straight-ahead jazz and a few tunes that defy categorization. The artist adds these familiar compositions to her expansive body of work to create a musical blueprint of her current place in time.

Tickets, available online, are $62 general. Keep in mind that The Sofia (2700 Capitol Ave.) requires that you be COVID-19 vaccinated.

Regarding Talisk, the website says the three Scots team up for a “ground-breaking, chart-topping, genre-bending, globetrotting, instantly enthralling” sound. “It’s little wonder that Talisk ranks highly amongst the most in-demand folk-based groups to emerge from Scotland in the last decade and more.”

Tickets are $30.
