NEIGHBORS

October 12, 1992|By LYN DEAN

I was at Maryland Hall last week getting tickets for "Lyndon" (reviews have Laurence Luckinbill's performance right up there with James Whitmore's "Give 'Em Hell, Harry"), and happened to pick up a brochure promoting the Coastweeks '92 photography contest. I was excited about being able to promote it here, until I noticed that the deadline for submissions was Oct. 1. Now I can only say: watch for the winning entries to be displayed in county offices and libraries. But it still stands as a good example: If you're making something happen in the Annapolis/South County area, let me know about it early so I can help spread the word. I'm at 263-2421.

For those attending the Power Boat Show this weekend, keep an eye out for a 34-foot Hatteras Tri-Cabin that has been donated to Chesapeake Region Accessible Boating (CRAB). The boat represents the beginning of the power boat program for CRAB, which has concentrated on introducing the joy of sailing to people with disabilities and their families. CRAB volunteers will use the boat to teach the disabled how to operate power boats. The group will be selling raffle tickets for a 12-foot, single-sailor boat. Raffle tickets are $1 each, or six for $5.

A composer writes music with the notes in order and accompanying Italian words that mean slow, fast, really, really fast or whispering. If it's all there on the page, why does an orchestra need a conductor? The Annapolis Symphony will take a lighthearted look at the conductor's role in two concerts for youngsters at 2 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. Oct. 25 at Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts in Annapolis. The featured soloist will be 12-year-old marimba player Warren Wolf. Music Director Gisele Ben-Dor has chosen music by Rossini, Handel, Haydn, Bizet, Strauss and Sousa. For information or to order the $5 tickets, call 263-0907.
