Marina Venice Yacht Club concert and Killer Shrimp car show make for an interesting Memorial Day Weekend pairing

The rumble of engines meets the elegance of chamber music in two separate Sunday events along Admiralty Way in Marina del Rey.

From 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., Killer Shrimp kicks off its second annual Killer Rides Car Show season with a rally for hot rods, muscle cars, motorcycles and other classic or exotic vehicles. The family-friendly event includes live bands as well as free hot dogs and hamburgers.

At 7:30 p.m., The Strumenti Chamber Players kick off the Marina Venice Yacht Club Chamber Music Series with a 7:30 p.m. concert at the Marina City Club. The trio includes concert violinist Geoffrey Maingart, concert cellist Dennis Karmazyn, and Dale Hikawa Silverman, who also performs as a principal violist with the Los Angeles Philharmonic.

The program includes the String Trio by Beethoven Op. 3 in E-flat Major and popular romantic salon music melodies such as the tango from the 1992 film “Scent of a Woman.” Maingart said he will perform on a 17th-century Francesco Rugieri violin that once belonged to Mozart and his father.

Killer Shrimp is at 4211 Admiralty Way. Call (310) 578-2293 for information.

The Marina City Club West Tower is at 4333 Admiralty Way. Concert tickets are $20 to $25. Email strumenti@gmail.com for information.
