Cultural buffet: If you’ve not yet checked out Luscious Noise, the Sunday, March 20, entry in the ongoing the classical-music / multimedia series looks to be a good one. Under the direction of conductor John Stubbs, members of the San Diego Symphony and the choral ensemble Sacra / Profana will perform works by Bach and experimental composers like Gyorgy Ligeti, Heitor Villa-Lobos and Edvard Grieg. To complement the tunes, there’ll be video—like scenes from 2001: A Space Odyssey to accompany Ligeti’s swirling, creepy, a capella soundscape “Lux Aeterna”—a dance performance from the ballet Le Spectre de la Rose and an excerpt from a documentary about Spanish architect Antonio Gaudi. The performance begins at 7:30 p.m. at Anthology, 1337 India St. in Little Italy. Tickets are $15.
