I am so proud and excited to have read Zainab Al-Suwaij's op-ed piece "Stand up for our values" (Sept. 24). Ms. Al-Suwaij has great insight and courage to have printed her opinion regarding the behavior of radicals and their attack on the U.S. embassies. Unfortunately, the impression of many Americans is that Muslims are a hate-mongering, angry, primitive group of people. The world only sees the loud violent anger. I hope that Ms. Al-Suwaij's thoughts are taken very seriously and that the women of the Muslim religion support her in her outstanding efforts to educate the world that there are plenty of Muslims who want peace and harmony.

The women of the Upper Chesapeake Chorus are far from similar. Their ages span 50 years, with the youngest members in their 20s and the oldest in their 70s. Their professions include everything from teachers and lawyers to stay-at-home moms and graphic designers. Some had professional singing experience before joining the chorus, while others just liked to sing around the house. But when this diverse group joins together to sing, chorus members say something magical happens: They create resounding, uplifting and energetic music.

While a half-marathon is less trying than a metric (16.3) marathon or a marathon itself, it is more taxing than a 10K or even a 10-miler. But excuse Jeff Hinte if he described Sunday's Harmony Half-Marathon in Harford County as a "nice, little run through the countryside."That's because, of late, Hinte has been doing longer runs. On Nov. 17, he completed the John F. Kennedy 50-Miler from Boonsboro to Williamsport in 6:50. On Oct. 28, he finished the Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon, a 1 1/2 -mile swim, a 22-mile bike and an 18 1/2 -mile run, in 4 hours, 21 minutes, 2 seconds.

They're the first to acknowledge that they make an unlikely foursome. A Polish artist's daughter and three artists representing America, Nigeria and the Dominican Republic have forged an alliance to advance their individual creative visions - after hooking up on the Internet. The new friends, all co-organizers of Art Promotion Together on meetup.com, "just jelled," said Eva Skrenta, a Columbia resident who joined to showcase her father's work. When their art is displayed together, any questions about what connects their seemingly disparate worlds quickly fade away.

Sure, Hammer is the headliner, but the commercial strength of the opening acts -- particularly Boyz II Men, whose "Cooleyhighharmony" debut is currently outselling Hammer's "Too Legit To Quit" -- suggests that the rapper is anything but untouchable.

Fifty years they have been together, making music steeped in silky smooth harmony, hypnotic melodies and good old-fashioned soul. Fifty years of producing a string of classic hits, from the toe-tapping "Oh What a Night," to the achingly tender "Stay in My Corner." Fifty years of concerts around the world, platinum and gold records, even a critically acclaimed Hollywood movie. A half century - a near lifetime, it seems - of being the legendary Dells. In many ways, they are the forerunners of latter day R&B harmony, helping set the standard for groups like the Temptations, the Miracles and many contemporary artists.

The Carroll County Human Relations Commission will honor a musician who has worked to build diversity and harmony through the arts at its 12th annual awards dinner Monday. Because he is the honoree, Walter M. Michael II will not provide the musical accompaniment for the dinner at the New Windsor Conference Center. It's the first time in memory that Michael won't supply the music. "Walt has done music for us and been very supportive of us for many years," said Virginia Harrison, commission chairwoman.

Last weekend was auspicious for New Spirit of Maryland -- Glen Burnie's barbershop chorus of 20 women. A year ago, they were just six women who wanted to harmonize. By March, they had grown to 14.

If you went by the number of vocal groups on the R&B and pop charts these days, you might think we were in a sort of golden age for soul harmony.Between Xscape and N Sync, Blackstreet and All Saints, 98 Degrees and Next, it's getting so you can barely turn on the radio without hearing some chorus or other set out in shimmering four-part harmony.Trouble is, the only thing that distinguishes most of these acts is NTC the songs they sing.Back in the '60s, it was easy to tell the Four Tops from the Temptations, or the Marvelettes from the Supremes; each had its own sound, its own style, its own attitude.

The Young Bucks Band, featuring Ed Jones, of Washington, performed at the annual Spring Fling May 18, hosted by Gena Wade and the city of Laurel Division of Senior Services. Through their musical talents, countless renditions and old school street-corner harmony, they allowed attendees to step back in time, hand dance, line dance, slow dance, sing and simply reminisce about another time, gone but definitely not forgotten. The Partnership Hall was beautifully decorated by Gena Wade, and guests wore their "spring best" and dined on delicious, mouth-watering and savory foods and assorted beverages prepared by Chef Lavease Briley.

For at least a generation of pop-culture consumers, the soundtrack of their lives has included themes from the likes of Mega Man and Super Mario. As they've grown up, the music of video games has branched out - to solo piano, to rock concerts and to symphonic performances. Among the developments is the University of Maryland's Gamer Symphony Orchestra, whose 100-plus members will take to the stage at College Park's Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center on Saturday, May 4. "The quality of video-game music has grown exponentially over the years," says Joel Guttman, president-elect of the group, which specializes in arranging and performing pieces taken from the background music on video games such as Halo, Sonic the Hedgehog and Final Fantasy.

The holiday season wouldn't be the holiday season without colorful music and dance events. And, just as department stores break out the Christmas decorations earlier and earlier, some performing arts organizations get into the swing before Thanksgiving. A couple of stage versions of Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol," for example, are already up and running, with more on the way. Handel's evergreen oratorio "Messiah" and Tchaikovsky's beloved ballet "The Nutcracker" will be here in abundance before you know it, along with all sorts of seasonal concerts by any number of ensembles, starting next weekend with a holiday program by the Canadian Tenors.

Rookie kicker Justin Tucker has impressed the Ravens in a lot of ways so far, the least of which was with his vocal cords when the Texas native serenaded his teammates with his renditions of hit Italian opera classics. “The guys appreciate his talent, that's where it starts,” Ravens coach John Harbaugh said Wednesday. “The guy sings Italian opera in front of our players.  So, if you're an Italian opera person, that's probably pretty normal.  For a lot of our guys, that seems a little different in the football culture.

At first glance, David Correy and Nelson Emokpae could not be more different. One is a humble, clean-cut 32-year-old African native with a silky voice. The other is 26, covered in tattoos and piercings and so passionate about his music he breaks down in tears while talking about it. Yet Correy and Emokpae came up in and around Baltimore, and both have tragic pasts that pushed them to seek solace in music. Now they're both competing on rival reality singing competitions - Correy on "The X Factor" and Emokpae on "The Voice.

Somewhere, a husband and wife are arguing about money — even on Valentine's Day. And researchers say that if the two were being totally honest, they would say: "It's not you. It's me. " Researchers say that people who don't like the way they handle money tend to marry partners with opposite financial traits. An unhappy tightwad, for example, will choose to walk down the aisle with a spendthrift. But what might seem appealing during courtship can be aggravating in a marriage. "The more different you are, the more you fight.
