A collector's item is in the works in Shady Side -- the 1994 South Anne Arundel County calendar sponsored by the Shady Side and Galesville Rural Heritage societies.

The calendar features the drawings of nine artists, chosen from 30 who submitted works to a contest held earlier this year.

The Shady Side scenes and winning artists are: The Ford House by Aleta McHale of Crofton, workboats on Parrish Creek by Allison King Pearson of Shady Side, the Captain Salem Avery House Museum by Richard Twomey of Shady Side, Cedar Point Creek by Harry Early of Stevensville, a fish fry at Lula Scott's by Pat Crandall and Weems House by Brian McKenna. McKenna and Crandall live in South County.

The Galesville scenes are Dixon's Station and the Topside Inn by Laura Emley Dixon of Galesville, the Galesville Community Hall and a Chesapeake 20 by Marnette Clemons of Berwyn Heights, the West River Market by Pam Tittle of Millersville and Woodfield's Fish and Oyster House by Pat Crandall.

The calendars will be ready for distribution late this month. Orders can be placed now by calling the Captain Salem Avery House Museum at (410) 867-4486 or (410) 867-4763. The calendars are $7.50 each, with a $1.50 additional charge for mail orders. They can be picked up in person at the museum on Sundays from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Interested buyers should call ahead to check availability.

The Annapolis Symphony Orchestra inaugurates its Family Concert this Sunday, with performances at 2 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. in Maryland Hall.

Symphony spokeswoman Pat Edwards is enthusiastic about the uniqueness of the affair. "It's going to be fun for the whole family. They'll be learning, but having a wonderful time in the process."

Before the concert, children will have an informal opportunity to meet the musicians and see the instruments. The specially scripted concert gives an introduction to the instruments and the sounds they make, and includes helpful advice on how to enjoy a concert.

Ballet music by Prokofiev is the order of the day, and the 4-foot-tall Bob Brown Puppets add their own magic and charm to the afternoon.

Tickets for the Family Concert are $5 for children and $10 for adults. They can be purchased in advance by calling 263-0907, and at the door on Sunday.

Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts will be active the night before the Family Concert, too, with the return of the Windham Hill Winter Solstice Tour. This is the fourth consecutive appearance of the tour at Maryland Hall. The group consists of Liz Story, Joel DiBartolo, Nightnoise and Alex DeGrassi.

Tickets for the concert are $22 for Maryland Hall members, $24 for others. To charge tickets, call the box office at 263-5019.

Patrons with hearing disabilities are reminded that Maryland Hall has installed an AUDEX infrared listening aid, available without charge on a first-come, first-served basis. Those who already own an infrared receiver will be able to use it, as all infrared systems are compatible.
