March 06, 1998|By Lourdes Sullivan | Lourdes Sullivan,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

AFTER THE dazzling televised athletic performances of the Winter Olympics, the artistry and grace of figure skating is coming to our town.

The Columbia Figure Skating Club is presenting its spring ice show, showcasing the talent and skill of its 120 members.

Laurel residents Anna Campos, Jennifer Flagg, Brynn Harbert and Cynthia Schmidt are among the skaters.

Anna, 15, has won medals in the U.S. Figure Skating Association's South Atlantic Regional Competitions for the past five years.

The ice show, "Fairy Tales on Ice," consists of short pieces inspired by the work of Hans Christian Andersen.

Performances, which sell out early, will be held at 2: 30 and 7 p.m. March 28, and at 1: 30 and 4: 30 p.m. March 29. Tickets cost $8.50, and can be ordered by calling Donna Burrows at 410-461-9948. Tickets may be available at the door. The two-hour shows will be held at Columbia Ice Rink, 5876 Thunder Hill Road, Columbia.

Directions: 410-730-0321.

Adventures of Rama

The Savage library will provide a venue for "The Adventures of Rama," a puppet show by Shree Patidar Samaj -- an Indian youth group -- at 2 p.m. tomorrow.

Rama is an incarnation in human form of the Hindu deity, Vishnu.

This performance is free, but registration is required: 410-880-5978.

Our neighbors' voices

Columbia Pro Cantare is putting the finishing touches on its concert March 29.

The group will perform with Baltimore's Second Presbyterian Choir. This is the fifth time the two groups will have sung together.

The concert will include the premiere of a work by Second Presbyterian's choir director, Elam Ray Sprenkle, titled, "That Music Always Around Me."

The combined chorus will also perform Mozart's "Requiem."

Note the voices of Savage neighbors Daniel Brandt, Shirley Bockstahler-Brandt, Sheila Boyer, Cyndie Eberhardt, Carolyn Cregan, Matt Johnsen and Fran Williams.

Brenda Witmer, Marianna Busching, Pedro Rodelas and Randal Woodfield are the soloists.

The concert will be held at Second Presbyterian Church, 4200 St. Paul St., Baltimore.

Admission is free, but donations will be accepted.

Information: 410-465-5744.

Music to our ears

If spring is near, can the lyrical sounds of classical music be far away?

It's time for Montpelier Cultural Arts Center's Classical Music Recital series.

This series of free Sunday afternoon concerts begins with a classical guitar performance by Ernesto Tamayo at 3 p.m. March 15. Reservations are required. The Montpelier Cultural Arts Center is at 12826 Laurel-Bowie Road, Laurel. Information: 301-953-1993.

Sit and stitch

A knitting group, Sit and Stitch, meets Friday mornings at Savage Senior Center. Members are making 110 lap robes for nursing home residents.

Since January, the group has finished more than 20 blankets. The stitchers are bound to run out of yarn quickly, and they need supplies.

If anyone has an old, unfinished knitting or crochet project, donate the yarn to the senior center.

Eating the green

Savage Senior Center will celebrate St. Patrick's Day -- and the center's anniversary -- with an Irish menu.

Traditional dishes -- corned beef, cabbage, potatoes and a bright green cake -- will be served.

Reservations: Edith Bennett, 410-880-5915.
