A seasonal guide to the arts Fall Arts Preview

September 13, 1998|By The Editors

We interrupt your normal Arts & Society section this Sunday to bring you our seasonal guide to the arts.

Don't be alarmed, don't try to adjust your subscription - we'll return next week with our usual mix of trend stories, commentary, profiles and social insight. Meanwhile, we offer this comprehensive arts and entertainment calendar of fall and winter events in Baltimore. (We have also included highlights from Washington, and occasionally looked ahead to next spring).

The fall promises to be an exciting time in the arts:

* On Oct. 11, the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra will re-create the famous 1808 concert where Beethoven introduced his Fifth and Sixth symphonies and Fourth Piano Concerto.

* "The Thin Red Line," Terrence Malick's World War II film that may challenge "Saving Private Ryan" for gritty verisimilitude, is expected to open Christmas Day.

* Sheryl Crow, Joni Mitchell, Elvis Costello (partnered with Burt Bacharach) and Hootie and the Blowfish all have CDs set for September release.

* Lines are already forming for the landmark Van Gogh exhibit opening next month at the National Gallery of Art.

Throughout the coming season, our critics will offer in-depth coverage of the huge menu of events listed here. Today's section is just a preview - an appetizer, if you will. Keep it on hand to help plan your social calendar, or to use for talking points at fall cocktail parties.

By the way, you'll find weekly coverage of books, weddings and the Maryland social scene in their usual places.
