Instead of heading "downy ocean" this weekend, why not consider a trip down Southern Maryland? Tomorrow in St. Mary's City, the imaginative and popular River Concert Series, presented by St. Mary's College of Maryland, presents the starry finale of its sixth season of outdoor performances.

Jeffrey Silberschlag will conduct the Chesapeake Orchestra in music associated with the heavens, including Gustav Holst's The Planets, Richard Strauss' Also Sprach Zarathustra (forever linked to the film 2001: A Space Odyssey) and, of course, selections from John Williams' Star Wars. The concert is at 7 p.m. on the campus of St. Mary's College, Route 5 in St. Mary's City. Grounds open at 5 p.m. Food vendors will be on site. Admission is free.
