Every performance by jazz singer Rene Marie is an act of validation. Sixteen years ago, she faced an ultimatum from her then-husband - abandon music or get out. She chose the latter course, and went on to enjoy an international career. Her musical journey continues as Marie brings her Eartha Kitt tribute to Creative Alliance this weekend. Given her self-confidence and dynamic personality, Marie is a natural to delve into the legacy of the sexy, indelible Kitt. Although Marie can purr seductively through a song, she doesn't try to imitate Kitt.

In the 1930s and 1940s, Baltimore had a rich, flourishing jazz scene. Today, live jazz and devoted jazz clubs are scarce. But the owners of a new club located in a threadbare West Baltimore commercial district are hoping to help rekindle the city's once-dynamic jazz legacy. "We think Baltimore can be a major city for jazz," said Errez Segman, co-owner of the forthcoming venue, Back Alley Jazz. "We want our club to be a household name for live jazz and fine dining, and we think Baltimore's the right city for that."

In order to determine what ingredients and equipment the chefs will use, they must walk around the kitchen as Kermit plays his trumpet.  When he stops, the station they are in front of is where they will begin cooking.

Editorial from The Aegis | September 12, 2013
A few weeks ago, the Havre de Grace Art Show celebrated its 50th annual incarnation, and this weekend the Bel Festival of the Arts will mark its 48th year. The two events are evidence of the enduring practicality of art in everyday life. It is easy to be critical of events like the two shows. Certainly the Million Dollar Mile aspect of the Havre de Grace show, which sought to showcase world class fine art in the city half a century ago, has faded as folk art and crafts have taken center stage.
