A tune plays softly when you open the door to Rosalie and Joe Manfre's home. The music is a sweet lullaby. It's as if the house is welcoming you inside with its song.Upon closer inspection, you notice a small, round, brass-colored music box sitting just above the doorway. When the door swings open, it pulls a string to start the music.The hidden music box is just one of the many things that the Manfres love about their 70-some-year-old Colonial in Overlea.That's not surprising, considering that music has always been important to the Manfres.

When I was 7, my mother decided our family needed some culture. She bought a secondhand piano and started calling our den "the Music Room." She loved referring to "the Music Room" as though it were "the Conservatory" or "the Drawing Room." (None of our friends had music rooms.) Before long, a floor-model Zenith radio and an RCA record player joined the piano. My father built shelves for albums of classical LPs. Our family dined to Strauss waltzes and symphonic suites. On Saturdays, my older sister, Janet, and I were forced to listen to live performances from the Metropolitan Opera while we did our chores.

Rachel Franklin brings musical insight and passion to her jazz playing and her pre-concert lectures at the Annapolis Symphony Orchestra. The musicologist has prepared symphony audiences in pre-concert lectures since 1996. Franklin provides a deeper understanding of the music, and the lectures proved so popular that they outgrew Maryland Hall meeting rooms and moved to the main auditorium two seasons ago. Some lucky ASO concertgoers heard Franklin, a concert pianist, at the 2006 chamber music program she created in the first collaboration between the symphony and St. John's Mitchell Gallery, combining visual art with classical music selections.

Few who pass the nicely landscaped yet unremarkable town house condominium realize that on the other side of the door is a sophisticated home/gallery setting rarely seen outside of New York City. Here, in space called music room, living room or bedroom, are displayed works by such artists as Jackson Pollack, Jasper Johns and Frank Stella. The mood is cool, restrained, charged with an energy discernible to art lovers as well as lovers of interior design, who upon entering recognize that this is not a neutral background created for art but a design that stands on its own.When the owner, who is frequently away from home, purchased his Greentree condominium just outside the Beltway, his primary concern was for the safety and display of his art collection.

Blinking Christmas lights are nowhere to be found. There are no plastic silver and gold garlands draped on the walls, fake snow sprayed on windows or life-size, mechanical Santas waving on the lawn.But tomorrow at the pristine and historic 1780s Hampton Mansion, the early 19th-century dining room devastated by flooding a year ago will reopen with an elaborately decorated Christmas feast of desserts and fruit trees true to the period.It's a tradition marked by dozens of local garden club members, who gathered yesterday morning to hang the traditional greens and add a touch of holiday color to some of the Georgian mansion's 33 rooms.

After more than 30 years in the classroom, it's been awhile since Sharon Mabbott has had the first-day jitters. But the teaching veteran had trouble sleeping Sunday night, worrying about opening day at Freetown Elementary School in Glen Burnie. This first day was different for Mabbott, who arrived at Freetown yesterday morning not as a teacher, but as a mentor, responsible for smoothing the way for five first- and second-year teachers at the school. Mabbott is one of 21 veteran teachers in Anne Arundel County's first mentor program who have been assigned to work exclusively with beginning teachers at 14 schools.

Wesley Parker learns to read in art. He learns to read in music. He learns to read in the computer lab. He even learns to read by walking though Cedarmere Elementary School's halls and looking at the writing posted on walls. "We learn to read everywhere," he says.For Wesley and other first-graders in Room 8 of the Reisterstown school, the path to cracking the code of reading weaves through every one of their classes and subjects. It has to, because more and more their journey has become a race against time.

It may be billed as the Chesapeake Bay Blues Festival, but the two-day concert at Sandy Point State Park in Annapolis is hardly a musically exclusive affair.Sure, it boasts plenty of well-known bluesmen and women, including Buddy Guy, Bobby "Blue" Bland, Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown, Koko Taylor and Saffire the Uppity Blues Women.But it will also feature performances by acts that are anything but pure blues. For instance, there's Delbert McClinton, whose current album, "One of the Fortunate Few," has done well on both the Billboard country and blues charts.
