Members of the Columbia Orchestra get to explore compositions written for smaller ensembles when they perform a free chamber concert on Sunday, April 27, at 3 p.m. at Christ Episcopal Church in Columbia. Most of the pieces involve quartet and quintet configurations playing music written for woodwinds, strings, piano and brass; and there's even going to be a place on stage for a hammered dulcimer. So, it's basically a chance for musicians belonging to a large orchestra to work on a smaller scale.

Beyond heavy wrought-iron gates, a wavy brick path leads to the side steps of a gray stone, Gothic Revival parish house, once belonging to Christ Episcopal Church. Building and gardens are snuggly tucked behind the grand townhouses of Mount Vernon's Chase Street. David Egan opens the building's double doors with an invitation to cross the threshold. The scent of old wood and beeswax wafts through the entrance area, conjuring memories of services, celebrations and quiet reflection. The fragrance lingers in the recessed, arched, diamond-leaded glass windows and in the intricately carved woodwork soaring to 15-foot ceilings.

Musicians are not in agreement about the world's first musical instrument: Was it voice (the sound of a mother singing to her child), or was it percussion (banging on something to make sound or send a message)? Some people believe that the voice is not really a musical instrument; but if music is an art and all art is human expression, then there is probably nothing more artful than a group of voices raised together in song. The sound of a chorus is at once natural, familiar, easy on the ears, thrilling and emotionally pointed.

The Sundays at Three chamber music series is just a short drive away for Howard County residents, because its concerts are performed at Christ Episcopal Church, in Columbia. This can be as much of an advantage for the performers as for the audience. "It's nice to be living here," acknowledges clarinetist William Jenken, who is among the performers at the season-opening concert at 3 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 29. A member of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra since 1998, Jenken moved to Columbia from Baltimore in 1999.

The Columbia Orchestra knows how to fill the stage with musicians, but it also knows that a much smaller ensemble also can be music to the ears. That's why its season provides a mix of concerts deploying the full orchestra and other concerts that adopt a chamber music format. Where the latter format is concerned, you'll only count three musicians when the Columbia Orchestra Piano Trio performs a free concert on Saturday, May 11 at 7:30 p.m. at Christ Episcopal Church, in Columbia.

In the spirit of forgiveness, several local Episcopal churches have offered to host a funeral for Douglas Franklin Jones, the man Howard County police say fatally shot a rector and a church administrator at St. Peter's Episcopal Church in Ellicott City before killing himself in nearby woods. "A couple of churches thought it would be nice to offer their space," said Sharon Tillman, a spokeswoman for the Episcopal Diocese of Maryland. "It's up to [his] family whether they will take it or not. " Jones is accused of entering the church May 3 and shooting the Rev. Mary-Marguerite Kohn, whose funeral was held Tuesday at the Cathedral of the Incarnation in Baltimore, and ecclesiastical administrator Brenda Brewington, whose funeral is scheduled for Thursday at St. John's Episcopal Church in Ellicott City.

The centuries-old church affectionately known as "Old Brick" is far from imposing. It more closely resembles a one-room schoolhouse than it does the newer, larger building that has housed its congregation since the 1990s. Yet Old Brick's historic role as a witness to the development of Howard County and Columbia looms large in the hearts of many, and has inspired its congregation at Christ Episcopal Church to restore the red-brick building on what is now Oakland Mills Road to a close facsimile of its original.
