Photos capture cost of prison

The lowdown -- America incarcerates a larger percentage of its citizens that any other country -- and we pay a steep price for it. Photographer Andrew Lichtenstein's totes up the harrowing toll in an exhibition at the Eubie Blake National Jazz Institute and Cultural Center that takes a hard look at the prospects of men who leave prison with little more than a bus ticket.

If you go -- The True Cost of Prison opens today and runs through Nov. 5. The Eubie Blake center is at 847 N. Howard St. Admission is free. Hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday; 9 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Saturday. Call 410-225-3130.


Chamber music

The lowdown -- If it's a Sunday afternoon, count on there being lots of chamber music around town. Here are two events worth checking out Sunday, if you can manage to be in two places at once: The Poulenc Trio brings its colorful repertoire and vibrant musical personalities to Community Concerts at Second Presbyterian. When oboist Vladimir Lande, bassoonist Bryan Young and pianist Irina Lande (they're artists-in-residence at the Walters Art Museum) perform, expect anything from Handel and Rossini to Previn and Piazzolla, not to mention the group's namesake, Poulenc. Clarinetist Edward Palanker, longtime BSO and Peabody faculty member, will give a concert with pianist Clinton Adams Sunday at An die Musik. The contemporary program includes a sonata by Bernstein and a work written for Palanker by Howard J. Buss. All proceeds benefit the Red Cross fund for Hurricane Katrina relief.

If you go -- Edward Palanker's recital is at 3 p.m. Sunday at An die Musik. Tickets are $10, $5 for students. Call 410-358-2638. The Poulenc Trio performs at 3:30 p.m. Sunday at Second Presbyterian Church, 4200 St. Paul St. Admission is free; contributions welcome. Call 410-744-4034.
