Even music lovers who don't know beans about singing will respond to the artistry of I Fagiolini, the English vocal ensemble that will perform saucy sets of Elizabethan madrigals and 20th-century selections by Benjamin Britten and Francis Poulenc at St. John's College tomorrow evening. That's because the group -- whose odd yet humorous name means the "String Beans" in Italian -- is one of the most interesting and accomplished ensembles on the international concert circuit. Founded in 1986 while the singers were students at England's Oxford University, I Fagiolini gained notice among the cognoscenti by winning Britain's Early Music Network's Young Artists Competition.

As she was setting love poems from different eras to music, Paula Diesel Farina kept one thing in mind: Never end a concert on a mournful note. A music teacher, singer and amateur composer, Farina had written music for a pair of contrasting pieces of poetry, one about first love and the other about the torment love can bring. "In the second one, 'Love is a Sickness,' the left hand plays this thumping heartbeat that you desperately wish would stop," she said, referring to the elegiac piano accompaniment.

While Enid Bagnold's "The Chalk Garden" is, on one level, about the challenge of raising a precocious and troubled teen-ager, on a deeper level it is about the part of a plant that lies hidden under ground -- the roots.The 1955 script -- receiving an able production under Suzanne Pratt's direction at Theatre Hopkins -- is itself an example of something that turns out to be different from what appears on the surface. From the beautifully detailed conservatory set to the cultured tones of the actors portraying the cast of upper-class characters and their servants, everything about the show suggests a drawing room comedy.

Los Angeles -- "Tales of the City" is controversial, ground-breaking, wise and touching. It's also more fun than many viewers will remember having had while watching public television.The controversial six-hour miniseries starts tonight at 10 on Maryland Public Television, Channel 22.The furor over "Tales of the City" is mainly about drugs, homosexuality, frank language and bare breasts, and while there are ample quantities of each, it is justified in virtually all cases by the way the filmmakers use the material to speak larger truths about the human heart.

Imagine prom night - circa 1600. The girls are dressed in Renaissance-style gowns of blue, red and gold velvet. The boys are in tunics, tights and feathered velvet caps. Their costumes may look like something out of Romeo and Juliet, but they help set the tone at a madrigals performance. Eight county high schools attended a madrigals festival at Wilde Lake High's Rouse Theatre this month. It kicked off an eight-week season of adjudicated music festivals for Howard County middle and high school groups.
