Youth symphony concert scheduled

NEIGHBORS

February 20, 1995|By LYN BACKE

A great way to get youngsters to like different foods is to give them a good variety when they're young -- and it's a good way to introduce anything new.

That's the impetus behind the Kinderconcert at Our Lady of Sorrows Hall in Owensville next Sunday.

Sponsored by South County Cultural Arts, the concert features the 65-piece Chesapeake Youth Symphony Orchestra performing "Annapolis 300: A Musical Journey through our State Capital," featuring excerpts from works of the great masters who composed during the 300 years of Annapolis history.

The goals of South County Cultural Arts are met in two ways with this production: to expose local children to the delights of great orchestral music, and to showcase youngsters performing at a high professional level.

A meet-the-artists reception for the audience and performers follows the performance.

The concert, at 3 p.m. on Sunday, is one of approximately 20 free musical and art experiences provided annually by South County Cultural Arts.

For additional information, call Tom Coleman, 867-0888, Yvonne Matthews, 867-1727, or George Stringer, 301-261-5613.

Also in South County Wednesday is the final segment on the 1995 Winter Luncheon Series sponsored by the Shady Side Rural Heritage Society.

Stained glass artist Bobbie Burnett will discuss the long history of stained glass and describe her work, which involves the Caring Collection: stained glass angels and sun catchers designed by Burnett, created by volunteers, and sold for the benefit of the Johns Hopkins Hospital and Anne Arundel Medical Center Oncology Centers.

Burnett has had exhibits of her work in Washington, Annapolis, California, Paris, and Albi, France.

The luncheon is at 11:30 at the Captain Salem Avery House Museum. The $6 charge includes homemade soup, sandwiches and dessert. Reservations may be made at 867-2866.

St. Andrew's United Methodist Church, at 4 Wallace Manor Road in Edgewater, is holding an art auction at 7 p.m., Saturday. The preview will start at 6 p.m.

Lithographs, prints, and original art will be for sale. A door prize has been donated by Ross Galleries of New York, the event sponsor.

Tickets are $10 each or two for $15, and the event is good fun -- I've been to it. Take care, though: it's a fund-raiser, there's artwork for every taste, and your chances of walking out with just the stub of your $10 ticket are slim.

And speaking of art for every taste: The Cardinal Gallery at Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts is soliciting slides of artwork to consider for its 1995-1996 exhibition season. The submission should include 10 to 20 slides of recent work, a current resume and an artist's statement.

All slides of accepted artists will be kept; the others will be returned only if a self-addressed stamped envelope has been included with the submission.

Submission deadline is April 7, giving artists a little over six weeks from today to choose their works and get their slides made. Send entries to: Mike Purvis, Maryland Center for the Creative Arts, 801 Chase St., Annapolis 21401. The reviewing process will be completed by the end of April.

For information, contact Purvis at 263-5544.

Current styles of clothing and furniture, at least in the catalogs I see, feature natural fibers, simple styles, and a neutral palette.

A couple of hundred years ago, however, those same cottons and silks and linens were processed by hand or rudimentary machine for maximum luxury and printed or woven with rich designs.

A free workshop on early American textiles and metals, sponsored by the Cultural Arts Foundation of Anne Arundel County, is being held Thursday at the Hammond-Harwood House museum in Annapolis.

The 1774 home, a National Historic Landmark, is at 19 Maryland Ave. The 10:30 a.m. Thursday workshop is part of a series designed to showcase the extensive decorative arts collection of the Hammond-Harwood House.

For more information, call the museum at 269-1714.

Diane Smear of the Annapolis Summer Dinner Theatre has shared with me the 1995 schedule and the choices are all winners.

"Nunsense," a fabulous frolic with the unlikely premise that the Little Sisters of Hoboken must raise funds to bury their sister nuns who have died from food poisoning, opens the season on June 2.

"Annie" opens July 14, and the youth production of "Bye Bye Birdie," will run weekdays from June 20 to July 26.

For details on auditions for childrens' roles in "Annie," to order tickets or to volunteer to work backstage, call 268-9212.
