As the Baltimore Symphony's 2016 centennial approaches, the orchestra will commission 10 composers to write encores of two or three minutes each.  Adding a twist to the project, the public is invited to submit ideas to help inspire those composers. The ideas, expressed in 100 words or less, can address "musical style, or could feature a particular instrument, local icon, location or historical figure," according to the press release issued Wednesday.  If your idea is accepted, you will be invited to the premiere of the encore it inspired and will receive a signed copy of the score.

The opening number is totally not ballroom. It's closer to jazz and hip-hop or I don't know what. Shirtless Keo Motsepe  though, so I don't care. Head judge Len Goodman  offers two dances as the possible encore - Janel Parrish & Val Chmerkovskiy  or Lea Thompson & Artem Chigventsev - and the audience will decide via Twitter who gets to dance.  The first couples up for results are Randy Couture & Karina Smirnoff , Betsey Johnson & Tony Dovolani  and Lea & Artem . From last night's extra footage, we see that Lea was wiping away tears at the end of Betsey's performance.

It was three years ago -- it only seems like 13 -- in June that I launched Midweek Madness, a good enough excuse to offer an encore of the inaugural posting and the perfect way to celebrate the first full week of summer. Here is the fab Mari Lynn, self-proclaimed coloratura soprano and musicologist, veering off her usual heilige kunst to destroy, I mean, deliver Gershwin's "Summertime. " If you can't endure all of it, don't miss the very end of the performance.

But relief is on the way -- tomorrow's high is expected to be in the mid- to upper 80s with a chance of showers. The cooler temperatures will signal a break in the scorching heat and high humidity that have plagued the city since July 3."It's going to be another warm day, but Thursday will mark the primary break in the heat wave," said Bob Melrose, a National Weather Service meteorologist.

Now it's not here any more."

When Lyric Opera of Baltimore presents a new production of Verdi's first hit, "Nabucco," this week, there will be a guaranteed encore: The Chorus of the Hebrew Slaves. "It's so good, you have to hear it again," says James Harp, the company's artistic director. That's what the first audience for "Nabucco" in 1842 at Milan's La Scala thought, too. For 172 years, this choral piece has been routinely encored at many an opera house, especially in Italy, where it enjoys the status of an unofficial national anthem.

Two weeks ago, we could only preview the coming attraction of the Ballet Theater of Maryland's full-length production of "Swan Lake. " Now, after seeing its debut performance last weekend, it's safe to say artistic director Dianna Cuatto has made good on her goal to redefine innovative choreography and dance artistry at Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts. Viewing Cuatto's study of the enchanting mythical characters battling evil and discovering the power of love, it's easy to see why this ballet ranks high on every balletomane's list.

Tonight we exorcise our tiny Whitney Houstons out into the air,” Nathanson said, before leading crowd in a rousing, shortened version of “I Wanna Dance with Somebody (Who Loves Me).” Nathanson entertained fans for just under two hours, singing 19 songs that ranged from newer tunes (“Heart Starts," “Annie's Always Waiting”)

This time a year ago, Joe Flacco was still viewed as a quarterback who couldn't get his team to the Super Bowl . He was still playing for a big contract after betting on himself by declining the Ravens' initial offers. He was still waiting for the Ravens to put their full faith in his right arm and open up their offense. What a difference a postseason makes. Today, Flacco enters the 2013 regular season with a Lombardi Trophy on his growing resume, a nine-figure contract and the respect of the football world after taking home the Super Bowl Most Valuable Player award.

Consider this our encore applause for Macklemore's performance at Preakness. This weekend, the self-made Seattle rapper took the stage at the Triple Crown's second jewel and delivered a set that included his two most recognizable songs -- "Thrift Shop" and "Can't Hold Us" -- but also the song "Same Love," in which he stands up for same-sex marriage and gay rights in an unabashedly forward way. Here's a link to the song's video on YouTube....

As Nickelback left the stage at Merriweather Post Pavilion one night last month, a plume of fire shot into the sky. "Thank you so much!" tattooed lead singer Chad Kroeger told the sellout crowd. "We'll see you soon." He meant it - literally. Less than two minutes later, Kroeger and his band mates returned to the stage for an encore. The 12,000 fans who had implored the band to come back may have thought their full-throated screams did the trick. But actually, the outcome had been as carefully planned as the on-stage pyrotechnics.

Eminem isn't as crazy as he would have us believe. Essentially, hip-hop's favorite white guy has been using the same formula since he blew onto the national scene in 1999, making millions by exploiting his dysfunctional past. And on his new CD, Encore, in stores today, the Grammy-winning artist gives us more of the same. Because a stolen copy of the album has made it onto the Internet, with millions downloading the songs, Interscope Records issued Encore four days in advance of its original Nov. 16 release date.

It appears to me that Speaker John Boehner and the House Republicans are determined to drive us off the so-called fiscal cliff at the end of the year, and they are positioning the party to blame President Barack Obama for it. The speaker keeps repeating his complaint that President Obama refuses to "compromise. " But when he describes the deal the GOP wants, the compromise that emerges is one where Mr. Obama cedes 100 percent of his objectives and Mr. Boehner cedes nothing. That's what the White House did last year on this issue.

So, here we are. Big finale night. At the beginning of the season I was pretty sure we'd be seeing Shawn tonight, but Melissa and Kelly are somewhat of a surprise. I'm also surprised by how much I've turned around on Kelly Monaco -- I would've ranked her one of my least favorite at the beginning of the season and now she's the one I hope wins it all. I'm going to tell y'all straight out -- I'm not going to recap the replays of stuff from earlier in the season. You've seen it, I've seen it, I've written about it, you've read about it. Let's just cover the new footage here.
