Judging by appearances, Brahms and Mussorgsky had a lot in common - beefy frames, long hair, full and scraggly beards, a fondness for the occasional (OK, in Mussorgsky's case, the perpetual) drink. But, musically, these contemporaneous composers were pretty much on separate planets. Brahms, a standard-bearer of German conservatism, brought to the standard structures - symphony, concerto, sonata, chamber works - a wealth of lyricism and refinement of technique. Mussorgsky, the Russian radical of his day, didn't bother with those old structures, focusing most of his energy on opera (a genre Brahms avoided)

Any Broadway aficionado can tell you what fairy tales, presidential assassinations and gang warfare on Manhattan's West Side have in common.All, of course, have been brought to the musical stage through the poetry and song of the incomparable Stephen Sondheim, the composer and lyricist whose work includes "Into the Woods," "Assassins" and the immortal "West Side Story."This weekend, the Annapolis Summer Garden Theatre inaugurates its 31st season with "Side by Side by Sondheim," a snappy, fast-paced revue that pays tribute to this genius of the American musical stage.

Venus and Saturn will be dancing together on the western horizon this week at dusk, getting so close they will be visible together in the same field of view when looking through binoculars, according to EarthSky.org. The planets are visible at nightfall but not much later than that, setting at early evening. Both appear as bright stars, with Venus the brighter of the two by a factor of about 80, according to EarthSky. They will be within 3 1/2 degrees of each other Wednesday and Thursday, according to Sky & Telescope.

In his program note for the Vagabond's production of the musical revue, "Side by Side by Sondheim," director Rod Clark suggests that the audience treat the experience as if they were guests in his home, enjoying a little after-dinner entertainment.A few conclusions can be drawn from this. First, considering the stylish art deco set, Clark must live in an elegant home. Furthermore, judging from the array of elaborate outfits worn by the two women in the cast, he must give extremely formal dinner parties.

Onstage at the Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall, musicians and choristers from Harford's high schools were positioned among members of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra and the Baltimore Choral Arts Society. As the lights dimmed, a hush descended on the hall filled with about 1,800 middle school students - Harford's largest field trip ever - as well as teachers, parents and county officials anticipating the county's first "Side by Side" concert. "For our musicians, it's like playing in Little League and getting a chance to play with the Yankees," said James Boord, supervisor of music for county schools.

Kenya Wilson and Katrina S. Smith went to the mall together, talked often on the phone, attended the same high school. Soon, the North Baltimore friends - both mothers of young children - will be laid to rest together. They were killed early Sunday when, police said, the driver of a stolen Jeep sped through a red light and hit their car. "They'll be buried at the same time, side by side," Wilson's mother, Gail Wolfson, said yesterday. "That's what they would want." Wilson, 22, and Smith, 25, attended a party Saturday night.

They warmed up just like members of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra. They dressed like them. They sat in the same chairs. It was only when they rushed on stage at the five-minute warning bell that the 28 Anne Arundel County high school students playing with the BSO this week gave themselves away. The real BSO players hung back in the lounge, lingering a few extra minutes over coffee. For a decade, high schoolers have vied for the chance to play side by side in a single concert with the BSO. This year's winners in December auditions got to play with the orchestra for a whole week.

Wilmington, Del. - The glue that holds George and Deann Verdier together is made up of wet potters' clay and whisper-thin shards of spun metal, of paintbrush bristles and dabs of artisanal honey. For more than three decades, the Verdiers have worked side by side nurturing the Sugarloaf Craft Festivals that they founded in 1975 in Montgomery County. Today, the fairs attract 350,000 customers and generate about $20 million in sales annually. Shows are held each year in 17 cities in the Midwest and along the East Coast, including Timonium, where Sugarloaf stops this weekend.

Last night was Len's "Side-by-Side" challenge, which ended with the two comedians on the bottom of the scoreboard and Zendaya and Val on top. Also: Jacoby Jones got some air, and had some fun with an air horn. They're getting the most out of that corridor thing from last night, as the group number opens in it. And, hey! They got the Stig from Top Gear to come dance. Oh, wait, this is some weird futuristic space thing, with all sorts of weird projections on the dance floor, resembling either the lunar surface or a grid of laser beams and everybody is stomping around very purposefully in space suits.

Policarpio Espinoza Perez and Adan Canela have been mentioned in the same breath since they were charged nine years ago in Baltimore with slashing the throats of three young relatives, ages 8, 9 and 10. They have sat side-by-side at two trials, but as prosecutors this week make a third try at convicting them, each man will get a chance to tell his own story. The change could allow the defendants to challenge the prosecution's theory that they were both involved in the Northwest Baltimore murders - another hurdle for a prosecution already without key pieces of evidence from the last trial seven years ago. E. Wesley Adams III, a former Baltimore homicide prosecutor who was not involved in the case, said it is generally more difficult to convict defendants separately.

A pair of side-by-side brick townhouses might be two of the most lovingly restored homes in the historic neighborhood of Federal Hill. They sit off a wide, brick-lined street. Separated on the ground level by a sally port (a narrow, open passage way), each has a door painted soft gold, each features third-floor garrets and each has windows cloaked in black shutters. These are the homes of Dr. John Hawkins, a dentist who practices in Federalsburg, a small town on Maryland's Eastern Shore, where he lives in another home during the week.

A voyage down the Southern Maryland shoreline tells the whole story.One spot is so small and remote, its downtown is a blur to passing travelers. Ice. Bait. Chum. Fuel. Gone in a drive-by second.A few miles away, an old shore town is remade. Builders rip up abandoned fishing shanties. Commuters roar down newly paved roads. Jet skiers rumble on the waterways. The past is only a name on a tombstone. The rest is just a memory.As Calvert, St. Mary's and Charles counties undergo one of the biggest population explosions in the nation, towns on the shore are bracing for change.
