CONGRATULATIONS to the College of Notre Dame of Maryland on its 100th anniversary. It enters its second century a peppy and confident representative of a dwindling species, the 84 remaining women's colleges in the country. It does so expansive in its role, sure of its self.The small residential Catholic college for women was a vanishing breed when Notre Dame and its constituents looked its future in the face a quarter-century ago. But thanks to the resolve of its leaders, the loyalty of donors and clear purpose of students, Notre Dame has retained and expanded its mission.

The next program from the Concert Artists of Baltimore, planned long before the September tragedy unleashed a fresh wave of patriotism, seems doubly appropriate now. This "American Sampler," conducted by Edward Polochick, offers quite a cross-section of the country's rich reservoir of music. Among the attractions will be Aaron Copland's Clarinet Concerto, with its exquisitely smooth, lyrical fusion of jazz and classical idioms; David Drosinos will be the soloist. And there will be a rare opportunity to hear Darker America, a 1924 symphonic poem by the great African-American composer William Grant Still, whose output has been absurdly neglected.

This week, why not take a chance on Mozart? Literally. During its "Many Moods of Mozart" program on Saturday, the Concert Artists of Baltimore will take time out for a perfectly legal crap game. It's all part of "Musikalisches Wurfelspiel" -- "A Musical Dice Game" -- devised by Mozart in 1787 as an arbitrary way of coming up with a minuet. The roll of the dice determines which pre-composed musical phrases are put together to form a complete composition. Other playful sides of Mozart will be explored as well, through excerpts from "The Marriage of Figaro," "The Magic Flute," the "Turkish" Violin Concerto and "Paris" Symphony.
