Days after hearing Annapolis Chorale's "Messiah" at St. Anne's Church, we complete the holiday traditions by reflecting on another rewarding year of performing arts in Anne Arundel County. We are fortunate to have a major performing arts venue at Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts, with its four resident companies - Annapolis Symphony Orchestra, Ballet Theatre of Maryland, Annapolis Chorale and Annapolis Opera - each offering a season of performances. In 2013, Maryland Hall continued its mission of providing community participation in the arts and added new excitement by cooperating with Rams Head to offer concerts like its sold-out Michael Bolton holiday performance Dec. 17. Maryland Hall hosted several magnificent performances in 2013.

It's been a glorious season of performance on our local stages, and there are still a few opportunities to let music and dance carry us through the holidays. Early this month we opened the season with Anne Arundel Community College Dance Company's "Flying By the Seat of Our Pants" performance, celebrating the troupe's 25th anniversary with an athletic and energetic program lifting audience spirits. The Dec. 3 show featured witty and spirited choreography by artistic director Lynda P. Fitzgerald, highlighting current students' talents and innovative works by long-affiliated troupe members.

When Live Arts Maryland music director J. Ernest Green conducted the season-closing "Light & Life" classical concert in April, it was a performance that seemed impossible to surpass. Yet the classical season opener, the "Dona Nobis Pacem" concert performed Nov. 8 and 9 at Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts, managed to rival it. Once again, Green and the 160 voices of the Annapolis Chorale, accompanied by the Annapolis Chamber Orchestra, produced a bright sound to enthrall near-capacity audiences.

Ballet Theatre of Maryland's artistic director, Dianna Cuatto, has opened the 31st season for the state's premier professional ballet company with a proven winner, "Beauty and the Beast. " Cuatto's choreography, combining romantic elements of Jean Cocteau's 1946 film with hints of Disney's 1991 animated version, revealed new vistas for adults while captivating children as well at the show's performances Oct. 18-20. Never one to rest on previous seasons' laurels or plaudits, Cuatto polished her choreography from 2009, when the Ballet Theatre last presented this show, to reveal sparkling new facets reflecting her dancers' growing expertise.

Roddy Peters heard all the chatter this summer when the incoming Maryland freshman point guard's jersey was listed as No. 3, an iconic number in College Park last worn by Maryland Hall of Famer Juan Dixon. But before the team's three-game tour of the Bahamas in early August, Maryland coach Mark Turgeon announced that the former Suitland High star would go down a digit - to No. 2 - and wear a much less notable number. It turns out that Turgeon wasn't the one to nix the idea of Peters wearing a number that hangs from the ceiling of Comcast Center and belongs to Maryland's all-time leading scorer.
