Chamber ensemble Duo Sonidos – guitarist Adam Levin, a native of Chicago’s North Shore, and violinist William Knuth – will entertain guests at the March 19 Hauskonzert fundraiser for the Evanston-based Bach Week Festival.

The benefit event also celebrates the March 21 birthday of the festival’s namesake, German Baroque composer Johann Sebastian Bach (1685–1750).

The Hauskonzert will take place at the Charles G. Dawes House,
225 Greenwood, St., former home of U.S. Vice President Charles Gates Dawes and now home of the Evanston History Center.

The event starts at 5:30 p.m. with a cocktail reception and light hors d’oeuvres, followed by a 6 p.m. concert.

“This performance takes us back to the age of salon concerts,” Mr. Levin says. “A laugh, a drink, a walk in the park.”
