Sunday's musical attractions included the 79th annual performance of Handel's "Messiah" by a choir named for the composer, plus a chamber music program presented by the Shriver Hall Concert Series.

It maintained a well-balanced sound and articulated with admirable clarity during a matinee at Towson Presbyterian Church, led by the ensemble's new artistic director and conductor of the Handel Choir of Baltimore, Arian Khaefi.

In 1928, a mutual acquaintance introduced American sculptor Alexander Calder to the Spanish-born surrealist painter Joan Miro, both of whom were living in Paris at the time. Calder, whose father and grandfather had been sculptors in Philadelphia, had asserted his independence from family tradition by rejecting the bronze and marble of his forebears and choosing instead to create fanciful figures out of wire and sheet metal that moved by the imperceptible action of invisible air currents.

The number of concerts packing the calendar is only slightly less than the number of cicadas currently burrowing their way to the surface, so the classical-music lover can't possibly run out of things to do. The only trouble will be trying to choose, because, as usual around here, many enticements are scheduled for the same day, if not the same hour.
