Under the artistic direction of Ra��l Mallavibarrena, Musica Ficta is renowned for its innovative interpretations of early music. The acclaimed Spanish ensemble returns to Seattle with music of the Christian, Jewish, and Muslim cultures of Moorish Spain. Prior to the religious expulsion of 1492, these three groups coexisted in Spain. Musica Ficta will highlight music of the Sephardic Jews, the "Cantigas de Santa Maria" of Alphonso X El Sabio, the villancicos of Diego Pisador, and improvisations with Ottoman-Turkish roots. Through these musical selections, the Valencia-based group will celebrate the culture -- and history -- of their home country. Musica Ficta is a founding member of the Association of Spanish Early Music Groups. A preconcert lecture begins at 7:00 p.m. Presented by: Early Music Guild, as part of the Early Music Guild International Series. Tickets: $45 general reserved seating; $40 seniors; $27 discounted side section; and $20 for ages 25 and under. Doors open: 6:30 p.m. Learn more: About Musica Ficta.

Portland native Cheryl Strayed's memoir Wild chronicles her journey of self-discovery on the Pacific Crest Trail -- 1,100 miles, three states, and 11 burned books later. After the death of her mother and without any training, the newly-divorced Strayed set out on the hike of a lifetime. Along the way, she met fellow travelers, found solace in novels (which she began burning to lighten her pack), and ultimately, healed herself in the process. A New York Times bestselling author, Strayed is also the author of Torch (2006), Tiny Beautiful Things (2012), and the popular advice column Dear Sugar. Presented by: Presented by Seattle Arts & Lectures, as part of its Literary/Arts Series. Tickets: Full season subscriptions are on sale now here. $15 general seating, $35 Patron, and $50 Grand Patron. Special student pricing also available with ID.

Brooklyn-based duo The Pop Ups offers a fresh approach to children's music, with light electronic beats and other background elements -- the result is some highly-catchy music that the whole family can sing along to. Whether they're singing about robots, creating art, or what we wear ("clothes, I suppose, are just the way that we dress"), The Pop Ups' third album is destined to become a classic. Young or old, you'll celebrate the power of creativity with Jason Rabinowitz and Jacob Stein -- and maybe learn some of their infectious dance moves in the process. Presented by: Town Hall as part of the Saturday Family Concerts series, curated by Brian Faker and Susie Tennant. Series supported by US Bancorp Foundation, Lucky Seven Foundation, and Fales Foundation Trust. Series media sponsorship provided by ParentMap. Tickets: Free for children; $5 for adults.

After Hurricane Katrina, doctors were tasked with the heavy responsibility of "choosing who lived and who died." Sheri Fink, New York Times journalist and physician, was in New Orleans to observe their decision-making and the "largely unwitnessed" tragedy that surrounded the sick and dying. Her book Five Days at Memorial: Life and Death in a Storm Ravaged Hospital depicts the post-storm days of chaos, including the lethal injections given to the sickest patients. She reveals the untold story of the dedicated doctors, nurses, and staff at Memorial Hospital -- who were forced to make terrible decisions about their beloved patients -- as well as the for-profit healthcare companies pushing the envelope. Winner of the 2010 Pulitzer Prize for Investigative Reporting, Fink is also the author of War Hospital: A True Story of Surgery and Survival. Presented by: Presented by Seattle Arts & Lectures, as part of its Literary/Arts Series.
