One hopes that it is only the relative unfamiliarity of the Gordon Center for Performing Arts that resulted in an audience of only about 50 listeners for the violin-and-piano recital by the brother-and-sister team of Corey and Katja Cerovsek.The 550-seat Gordon Center, which is located in Owings Mills, is not the easiest place to find. But it is most unfortunate if music lovers continue to miss hearing chamber-music offerings so attractive in so acoustically lively a space as the Gordon Center.

John Stamos sheepishly took the stage during Michael Jackson's nearly 12-hour "United We Stand" benefit concert. It was 10:30 p.m. - about two hours before the concert actually would end - and Stamos, the host of the event, apologetically explained to the already impatient audience that he was going to have to cut in on the program and record his closing speech for the TV cameras, because the show was running almost three hours late. An audience of about 46,000 had gone to RFK Stadium for one of the most star-studded events ever held in the area.

Presidential elections always challenge the press: The pace of events and competitive pressure invariably war with the media's duties to provide balance and perspective. Readers, viewers and listeners inevitably become more critical news consumers as their personal preferences solidify. This year, the polls instruct us, the country is likely to approach November so exquisitely divided that serious analysts actually wonder whether Michael Moore's anti-administration agitprop might tip the electoral scales.

LES PETITS Chanteurs d'Aix-en-Provence (The Little Singers from Aix-en-Provence) delivered a spellbinding performance Sunday at St. Michael's Roman Catholic Church in Mount Airy. Nearly 300 people were treated to an evening of powerful voices and melodic harmonies of these very talented French boys and young men. The choir is made up of about 40 French boys and young men ages 7 to 20 from the city of Aix-en-Provence, a vacation paradise in southeastern France and the birthplace of painter Paul Cezanne in 1839.

When visitors come, you want to show off the good stuff. Crabs on the Fells Point waterfront. Sailing the Inner Harbor. Walks around Fort McHenry. The dolphin show at the aquarium. An afternoon Orioles game. Recently, I had guests who wanted to see the other Baltimore, the one with the bodies and the bloodshed, the one with the boarded rowhouses and empty neighborhoods, the one TV news and TV entertainment have blurred into one macabre pageant of urban ills, dysfunction and misfortune.

The stunning Lena Olin once said she found men most attractive when they didn't think they were attractive. She was speaking of Oliver Platt in Casanova, but she might have been talking about Paul Giamatti. He earned a cult following by bringing gusto to roles such as the officious, tyrannical radio programmer called Pig Vomit in Private Parts. He won widespread acclaim as the cantankerous cartoonist Harvey Pekar in American Splendor. But he found a whole new following as the depressed, divorced novelist and wine expert in Sideways who stumbles into love with that knockout Virginia Madsen.

Overall, the effort was none too shabby for a show that took a year to plan and closed on its opening night.In fact, the debut of First Night Annapolis, a safe, family-oriented New Year's Eve celebration of culture and the lively arts, was a lot of fun. It was a very nice evening, spent with thousands of friends and neighbors who just wanted to have a good time.Everyone and everything seemed to cooperate to make the evening work. The night was brisk and clear, and people who missed one event just shrugged and went off to find another.

How many times have we found ourselves talking back to a talk show, knowing darn well nobody's listening but the dog?"I bet every one of us has seen a talk show and wanted to raise our hand and ask a question like, 'How could you have been so stupid?' " says Mike Easterling.For frustrated fans of TV talk shows, the WJZ-TV program manager offers a little comic relief in the form of a play he's written, "Talk Show.""It's a spoof on the television talk show genre and it's interactive," Mr. Easterling says.
