When internationally acclaimed pianist Eun Joo Chung steps onstage at 3 p.m. Sunday at Christ Episcopal Church in Columbia to perform a program of devilishly difficult music, she might not strike you as the girl next door. But she is; Chung has been a resident of Howard County for six years. "It's different here than in Vienna," she says, where she had studied in Austria at the Hochschule f?r Musik and performed at the Musikverein. "There everyone was a musician.

Her sound was inviting, passion-soaked, beautifully soulful. But where did it fit exactly? It was 1978 and disco was king, ruling the R&B charts, where Angela Bofill, an ebony-eyed, full-lipped Latina from the West Bronx, found an immediate home. Alongside beat-driven albums by Instant Funk, Donna Summer, Chic and Sister Sledge, Bofill's debut, Angie, stood out on the listings for its eclecticism: a classy, intelligent mix of African chants, smooth jazz and uptown soul. Angel of the Night, her sophomore effort, appeared nine months after Angie and was a bigger smash, featuring the Quiet Storm, self-penned classic "I Try."

Sometimes Dr. Scott Steidl's music inspires audience members to approach him after a performance, shake his hand and say, "I really hated your work." It's one of the things he loves about creating musical compositions.New works empower their listeners, Steidl says. "If you hear something you've heard 20 times before, your reactions are muted. If you hear something new, you react, love it or hate it. I don't mind negative comments because I think it's part of the role of art. It makes people flex their emotional muscles."

Some studies have suggested that music exposure might improve intellectual development. And just in case they're right, 18-month-old Mason Buswell has been getting the saturation treatment since before he was born. His dad used to put headphones on his mom's belly when Mason was in utero - playing everything from New Age jazz to Led Zeppelin - and now the toddler is enrolled in a weekly music class in Clarksville. Scott Buswell, Mason's father, says that while he doesn't know if it's having any effect, it sure is fun. "He's been dancing since he was able to stand," Buswell said, "and he loves these classes."

Twentieth century music is filled with works for narrator. Why this should be the case is not exactly a mystery. Ours has been a century of ironic detachment -- how else to distance ourselves from some of its horrors? -- and few things create irony like the contrast between spoken words and music.Saturday night in Friedberg Hall at the Peabody Conservatory in the Baltimore Symphony "Discovery Series," conductor David Zinman, members of the orchestra and two narrators performed two of these works: Sir William Walton's "Facade" and Igor Stravinsky's "The Soldier's Tale."
