Taking a day trip to Mount Vernon, Va. ... Gearing up for Earth Day.


Experience the sights and sounds of the 18th century at the 2005 Maryland Early Music Festival's presentation of "Letters From Annapolis." Musicians, dancers, actors and historians will bring the Golden Age of Annapolis to life with performances, exhibits and historical lectures that will take place in the city's houses, churches and historic buildings.

Visitors can enjoy music from the Colonial and Federal periods provided by choirs, fiddle and a Celtic harp, among many other instruments and ensembles. Children can learn the art of letter writing by using a quill pen to inscribe the 18th-century alphabet. Clothing exhibits and historical artifacts also will be on display.

The festival runs tonight through Sunday. Call 410-849-2494, ext. 2, for locations, event times and ticket prices or visit www.chambermusicannapo

If you often find yourself humming the themes to old TV hit songs, you may want the chance to hear the lyrics sung by the actors who made the shows famous. You can see Joyce DeWitt from Three's Company, The Brady Bunch's Barry Williams, Adrian Zmed from T.J. Hooker and Mackenzie Phillips from One Day at a Time belt out the TV tunes in Bel Air at Harford Community College's presentation of "TV Hit Parade" tonight. The actors, who also will be dancing and singing, will be accompanied by live music in this nod to the TV generation and plan to reminisce with songs from Cheers, Friends, Gilligan's Island and more.

"TV Hit Parade" is tonight at 8 at Harford Community College, 401 Thomas Run Road, Bel Air. Tickets are $17-$35. Call 410-836-4211.
