Photography awards

Photographs taken by Annapolis residents Alan Weitzman and his 10-year-old son, Robert, won awards at the international Key Imaging Award photography contest recently.

Alan Weitzman won "Best of Show" honors with a photograph of a New York street scene. He also got first prize in the people category, and his shot of a boy running across a field on the Eastern Shore won second place in the landscape category.

Weitzman is president of Weitzman Inc., an advertising agency in Annapolis.

Robert Weitzman received an honorable mention for an abstract using Polaroid film. He was the youngest photographer to enter a photograph in the competition.

Archaeology for kids

Youngsters can learn how archaeologists uncover the buried stories of Annapolis' past by digging a simulated archaeological site, as well as by visiting a real one, when the Historic Annapolis Foundation presents a hands-on-archaeology workshop from 9: 30 a.m. to 2 p.m. June 26.

The program is the summer event in the foundation's ongoing series of quarterly "Kids & History Days."

Participants will learn about the work of Archaeology in Annapolis, co-sponsored by Historic Annapolis Foundation and the University of Maryland, College Park.

Students will practice basic archaeological techniques as they unearth, screen, reassemble, identify and analyze artifacts at a simulated dig.

Then, children will see how those same skills are used by university students to excavate this summer's Archaeology in Annapolis field school dig site at an 18th-century property in the city's historic district.

The cost is $5 per child (minimum age 8) with one accompanying adult admitted free. Up to 20 children can attend, and registration is required.

The program will break for lunch at noon; participants should bring or buy their own lunch.

The event will begin at the William Paca House and Garden at 186 Prince George St. Call Glenn Campbell at 410-263-5554, Ext. 23, for information and to preregister.

Music institute

For six weeks beginning June 28, Annapolis will play host to students from around the world attending the Heifetz International Music Institute.

The Heifetz Institute is a summer program for serious violin and viola students, founded by acclaimed violinist Daniel Heifetz.

Heifetz has won the International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow and the Merriweather Post Competition in Washington.

For six weeks, students will live in the homes of music-loving families in Annapolis.

This year's curriculum includes an extensive schedule of private lessons, open master classes, public recitals and festival concerts.

The public can hear a series of weekly Monday evening student recitals at the 49 West Coffee House at 49 West St. in Annapolis from June 28 through Aug. 4.

On Wednesday afternoons, beginning June 30, the Heifetz Institute will present open master classes from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the historic Charles Carroll House in Annapolis.

All master classes are taught by Heifetz, and the public is invited to wander in and get a free view of the teaching process.
