Irreverent jazz

The lowdown -- Catch jazz with a healthy dose of "irreverent Dutch attitude" when the Instant Composers Pool Orchestra performs two shows on Saturday at An die Musik. The orchestra, celebrating its 40th anniversary, was founded by Dutch pianist Misha Mengelberg, one of the forebears of European jazz improvisation. Mengelberg and the other eight musicians perform at 8 p.m. and 10 p.m.

If you go -- An die Musik is at 409 N. Charles St. Tickets are $18-$23. Call 410-385-2638 or go to andie


All together

The lowdown -- In a nice bit of harmonizing, three local ensembles will come together on Sunday for an exploration of "Courtly Splendor." It's the first collaboration by the Handel Choir of Baltimore (directed by Melinda O'Neal), Pro Musica Rara (the period instrument group directed by cellist Allen Whear ) and Peabody Early Music Ensemble (led by Mark Cudek). The program offers music from the court of Ferdinand and Isabella, along with such baroque gems as Handel's Ode for the Birthday of Queen Anne and Bach's Brandenburg Concerto No. 2.

If you go -- The concert is at 4 p.m. Sunday at the Peabody Institute, 17 E. Mount Vernon Place. Tickets are $20 ($5 for students). Call 410-659-8100, ext. 2.
