J. Wynn Rousuck Polaris is a new-music ensemble that likes to organize its programs around a single, unifying theme that explores the connections between contemporary music and contemporary life. The theme of the group's concert Monday at 8 p.m. at the Baltimore Museum of Art will be nature. Music director Robin Kissinger and her 11 talented musicians will perform George Crumb's "Vox Balaenae," Robert Erickson's "Pacific Sirens," John Heiss' "Songs of Nature," and Stuart Sauders Smith's ". . . And Points North." The group will also do an improvisation on the four elements. Part of the proceeds from the tickets -- $7 and $12 -- will be donated to Save Our Streams.
