`Beau Jest'

The lowdown -- Some people will go to any lengths to please their parents. For the protagonist in James Sherman's Beau Jest, that means telling her folks she's dating a nice Jewish doctor - and hiring an actor to portray her fictitious beau when it comes time for her parents to meet him. The comedy opens tomorrow at Dundalk Community Theatre, directed by Rod Clark and starring Beth Berlin and Chris Briante.

If you go -- Show times at the Dundalk Community Theatre, on the Community College of Baltimore County's Dundalk campus, 7200 Sollers Point Road, are 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, and 3 p.m. Sundays, through March 4. Tickets are $21. Call 410-780-6369.

Museum music

The lowdown -- The Walters Art Museum has recently become a destination for lovers of chamber music, thanks to the Poulenc Trio, which has a concert series there. This oboe-bassoon-piano ensemble, made up of top local players, will be joined tomorrow by the Jacques Thibaud Trio from Berlin.

If you go -- The concert is at 8 p.m. tomorrow at the Walters Art Museum, 600 N. Charles St. Tickets are $25 and $40. Call 410-547-9000, ext. 265, or go to thewal ters.org.

Harp recital

The lowdown -- Yolanda Kondonassis, the remarkable Oklahoma-born harpist who has sold more than 100,000 albums worldwide, will give a solo recital tomorrow night presented by the Baltimore Chapter of the American Harp Society.

Glass show

The lowdown -- When it comes to matching visual imagery of this planet, minimalist composer Philip Glass is in a class by himself, as his acclaimed 1983 film score to eco-documentary Koyaanisqatsi makes plain. Now his distinctive music has been paired with stunning photography of Frans Lanting in a multi-media presentation called LIFE: A Journey Through Time, an exploration of evolution that gets its East Coast premiere by the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra this week. Marin Alsop conducts this celebration of the Baltimore-born composer.

If you go -- The concert is at 8 tonight at the Music Center at Strathmore, 5301 Tuckerman Lane, North Bethesda; 8 p.m. tomorrow and Saturday, 3 p.m. Sunday at Meyerhoff Symphony Hall, 1212 Cathedral St. Tickets are $25 to $78. Call 410-783-8000 or go to baltimoresymphony.org.
