Folks looking for a combination of top-notch talent and substantive programs are virtually guaranteed satisfaction at the Shriver Hall Concert Series. Tonight's event is a case in point.

Making his Shriver Hall debut will be Russian baritone Sergei Leiferkus, whose previous appearances in the region include the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra's memorable presentation of Tchaikovsky's Iolanta and the Washington Opera's production of Wagner's Parsifal. Leiferkus will perform two of the most inspired vocal works in the Russian repertoire -- Mussorgsky's Songs and Dances of Death and Shostakovich's Suite on Verses by Michelangelo.

The recital is at 7:30 p.m. today at Shriver Hall, Johns Hopkins University, 3400 N. Charles St. Tickets cost $14 (for students) and $28. Call 410-516-7164.
