Carter's legacy

The lowdown -- Few musicians left as inspiring a mark on Baltimore as the late Nathan Carter, founder and director of the Morgan State University Choir. To keep his memory and his work alive, the Nathan Carter Foundation was established to support Morgan State music students through scholarships. A benefit concert for that fund will be held at Morgan this weekend, with a guest choir providing the vocal attractions -- the Heritage Signature Chorale of Washington. That chorale, led by founding conductor Stanley Thurston, a Morgan alumnus, specializes in African-American music, with particular emphasis on the Negro spiritual. For this concert, the ensemble will be joined by the ever-radiant soprano Janice Chandler Eteme and the impressive tenor Issachah Savage. It sounds like it's going to be a performance Carter would have loved.

If you go -- The concert is at 6 p.m. Saturday at the Carl J. Murphy Fine Arts Center, Morgan State University, 2201 Argonne Drive. Tickets are $25 to $50. Call 443-885-4440 or go to [TIM SMITH]

Inside politics

The lowdown -- If you haven't yet caught midterm election fever, drop by Ford's Theatre in Washington, where the name on the ballot is State of the Union, Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse's 1946 Pulitzer Prize-winning play. An industrialist is being groomed for the White House in this account of personal and political deal-making and breaking. Under the direction of Kyle Donnelly, Ford's production stars Jim Abele, Ellen Karas, Floyd King, Nancy Robinette and Sam Tsoutsouvas. In conjunction with the play, Ford's will present a panel discussion called "Presidential Politics: Pundits, Personalities & the People" at 7 p.m. Monday. CBS' Bob Schieffer moderates a panel that will include Hearst columnist Helen Thomas, among others. Admission is free, but tickets can be reserved by calling 202-347-6262.
