Live Arts Maryland music director J. Ernest Green conducted the Annapolis Chorale Chamber Chorus, Annapolis Chamber Orchestra and soloists last weekend in performances of works by three of the world's finest composers, filling St. Anne's Episcopal Church in Annapolis with glorious sound. Stellar music is a Green hallmark, but he also knows how to entertain and inform - as is his custom, the conductor gave audience members insight into his musical choices, exploring the common musical thread uniting the three pieces on the program: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's "Vesperae solennes de confessore," Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach's Keyboard Concerto in E-major and Anton Bruckner's Requiem in D-minor.

J. Ernest Green, artistic director for Live Arts Maryland, began the company's season last month with an auspicious opener: "One Singular Sensation: A Celebration of the Music of Marvin Hamlisch. " The performance in late September showcased stellar guest soloists collaborating with the Annapolis Chorale and Youth Chorus and other youth groups at the Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts. It's fitting for Green to showcase the late Broadway and Hollywood composer's favorite works - after all, he worked closely with Hamlisch for 11 years, often conducting with and for him in a relationship that began in 2002 when Green was a cover conductor with the National Symphony Orchestra.

Live Arts Maryland music director J. Ernest Green opened the 2012-2013 season on a new high last weekend at Maryland Hall with a fabulous production of "Guys and Dolls" in which Annapolis Chorale members and stellar soloists brought sparkle to classic Broadway. With the first notes of the overture, the Annapolis Chamber Orchestra produced a full sound to underscore the importance of music at Green's "Broadway in Concert" performances. Further brightening this production were several surprises by soloists playing the Damon Runyon characters from the 1950 favorite.

St. Anne's Church in Annapolis was filled last weekend with the miraculous sound of the Annapolis Chorale Chamber Chorus, joined by the Annapolis Chamber Orchestra and six guest soloists for two great performances of Johann Sebastian Bach's Mass in B-minor. This performance of Bach's medley of masterworks was the first by Live Arts Maryland music director J. Ernest Green and his chorus, lending the added luster reflected by their joint discovery of its musical secrets. Regarded as a supreme achievement by music scholars, Bach's Mass is also an enigma, a Latin work composed by the Protestant "Cantor of Leipzig," and finished in the last year of his life.

Cole Porter's "Anything Goes" is near the top of any short list of great Broadway musicals, and fans have a choice of four performances this weekend in Annapolis or Brooklyn Park. From what I heard from the cast of singer-actors rehearsing last Friday at the home of Live Arts Maryland music director J. Ernest Green, I predict another terrific "Broadway in Annapolis" production. Watching the actors run lines and rehearse songs, I was soon so immersed in the show's incomparable music and wit that I fully understood what "It's De-Lovely" actually means.

THIS IS the time of year to get warm and cozy - bundle up in heavy woolen sweaters, pull a fuzzy hat over the ears or add an extra blanket to the bed. For Linda Schiffer, warm and cozy is not just a cold-weather pursuit. It is her full-time career. The Owen Brown resident is a professional quilter. Schiffer, 48, began stitching quilts as a child in Appalachia. "I learned to quilt as a tiny tot," the east Kentucky native recalls. When she was 5 or 6 years old, she would perch on a metal stepstool and sew beside the wood stove while her grandmother cooked, she said.

Live Arts Maryland's season-closing production of "The Music Man" at Maryland Hall brought a pre-World War I small town to life with skilled musical direction and several memorable vocal performances. Music director J. Ernest Green led the Annapolis Chorale, Annapolis Chamber Orchestra and cast members in the April 29-30 weekend performances of the musical, set in 1912, which sees a traveling salesman/con man change his ways. Composer-lyricist Meredith Willson's musical tale won the 1958 Tony Award for best musical, somehow besting Leonard Bernstein's "West Side Story" that year to place Willson at the top of Broadway composers.
