The Handel Choir's free performance at the Inner Harbor...


December 18, 1992|By Karen Zeiler

The Handel Choir's free performance at the Inner Harbor Amphitheatre of parts of the "Messiah" will begin at 5 p.m. tomorrow, not today, as was incorrectly reported in Friday's Around the Inner Harbor column. In case of bad weather, the concert will be performed across Pratt Street in The Gallery.

The Sun regrets the errors.


The Handel Choir will perform parts of the "Messiah" at 5 p.m. tomorrow at the Harborplace Amphitheatre. The one-hour concert is free. (In case of rain or snow, the singing moves to The Gallery.)

Afterward, travel over to Fells Point to the Admiral Fell Inn, 888 S. Broadway, for more seasonal sounds. Cozy up by the fire for readings of Charles Dickens at 7 p.m., then sit back and enjoy an hour of music with the Choral Bell Ringers of the United Methodist Church of Towson, starting at 8 p.m. For latecomers, a second reading of Dickens' work will be given at 9 p.m.



Sit down Sunday to an old-fashioned Christmas meal and take home recipes for 19th-century treats, including rosemary biscuits, gingerbread and, yes, an ol' Chesapeake Bay treat, oyster pye. Food historian Sue Latini invites you to be her guest Sunday for "Hearth and Home, Christmas Foods in Old Baltimore" at the 1840 House, 800 E. Lombard St. Dine on roasted turkey and dressing with giblet gravy, roasted wild quail, black-eyed peas, mincemeat pie, Sally Lunn bread, plum pudding and more.

Hours: noon to 4 p.m. Admission: $1.75 for adults, 75 cents for children 6 to 18. Children under 6 are admitted free. Reservations: 396-3279.


If you're off for the holiday and haven't taken the family to see the Inner Harbor at night -- illuminated for Christmas -- it's worth the trip . . . 176,500 white lights (give or take, Harborplace publicist Kate Delano said), covering trees, the Constellation's rigging (even if a few bulbs are missing), not to mention Santa's whatever-they-call-it.

Several businesses across Pratt Street have also gotten in complementary decorating.


No plans yet for New Year's Eve? A big bash at the Baltimore Convention Center, 1 W. Pratt St., features six nonalcoholic parties -- all under one roof -- from 8:30 p.m. to 11:45 p.m. sponsored by Provident Bank of Maryland. Midnight fireworks follow at the Inner Harbor.

Admission: $7 for adults, $5 for children 12 and under. Tickets may be purchased at the door or in advance at all Provident Bank of Maryland locations.
