Marilyn Horne, one of the great singers of the 20th century, sang a recital Sunday afternoon at Columbia's Jim Rouse Theatre in celebration of the Candlelight Concert Society's 30th anniversary season. Although the 69-year-old coloratura mezzo-soprano is no longer setting off fireworks in the bel canto and baroque arias that made her the Metropolitan Opera's lead mezzo for nearly three decades, she still knows how to put over a song. These days, when not serving on the faculty of the Music Academy of the West in Santa Barbara, Calif.

Jose Carreras and Marilyn Horne brought their entirely separate roadshows to Wolf Trap on Monday for a candied program of opera, Broadway and Neapoliton song.For the Spanish tenor, the packed event was a warm-up to what can only be billed as "Three Tenors II" this weekend in Los Angeles, a rematch of his 1990 World Cup-related concert with Luciano Pavarotti and Placido Domingo. That affair has sold more cassettes, CDs, videos, and public broadcasting memberships than any classical music or opera.

NEW YORK -- Compared with many of the tasks at the Democratic National Convention, it is one of the more difficult: singing "The Star-Spangled Banner," with its almost unsingable vocal range, before thousands of delegates whose collective musical tastes seem to lean to the chanting of candidates' names.Adding to the difficulty is the historical reality that the anthem is really a fairly modern Republican institution, written 170 years ago in Baltimore but given national status by Herbert Hoover only 60 years ago (Republican Hoover, of course, made only one real contribution to the Democratic Party -- a disastrous tenure that opened the door for Franklin D. Roosevelt)

MPT works through the final weekend of its August pledge drive with an evening of programs chosen by you, the viewers (picked according to the number of calls received when the shows aired earlier during the pledge drive). And it looks as if you're a pretty musically inclined bunch.First up is violinist Andre Rieu (5 p.m.-8 p.m.), leading the Strauss Orchestra in a performance that includes "Persian March" by Johann Strauss Jr. and "Radetzky's March" by Johann Strauss Sr. Then comes "Great Moments in Opera" (8 p.m.-9: 30 p.m.)

Mario Lanza didn't enjoy a long or critically beatified career, but the movie star tenor sure left a legacy of inspiration. He has been mentioned as a prime influence on the early development of many singers, from pop crooner Al Martino to all of the famed Three Tenors.

How could you criticize a show that has Little Richard singing "Rubber Ducky," Queen Latifah rapping about the letter "O," Big Bird auditioning backup singers for a la-la group, and Aaron Neville joining Ernie for a lovely version of "I Don't Want to Live on the Moon"?The answer is you can't criticize "Sesame Street Jam," the centerpiece of a four-hour "Sesame Street Marathon" (5 p.m. to 9 p.m. tomorrow on MPT, Channels 22 and 67, and WETA, Channel 26). The preview tape is a delight.But that doesn't mean some parents won't find room for criticism, depending on how "Sesame Street" material is handled during the pledge drive.

CHRIS MERRITT, Rossini tenor extraordinaire, will try to help the financially troubled Baltimore Opera Company cut its deficit problems by singing at its big $200-a-ticket fund-raiser, the Opera Ball, Saturday, Nov. 3, at Stouffer's Harborplace Hotel.Baltimorean Merritt will sing the acrobatic aria, "Pour mon ami" ("For my soul"), from Donizetti's "The Daughter of the Regiment," said Michael Harrison, the opera's general director. The aria has nine high "C's" and is considered one of the toughest to master, something like a trapeze artist's triple flip and then some.
