Compass Rose Theater opens its third season — and its first with a full, four-show schedule at its Spa Road location — with Rodgers and Hammerstein's "The Sound of Music," featuring a cast of 17 delivering a splendid production of the beloved 1959 blockbuster. Here in its new venue, Compass Rose's musical talent expands to the theater's lofty height. The production also fills the 25-foot-wide stage, bringing the audience in close quarters with the von Trapp family. Musical director Anita O'Connor draws professional harmony and beguiling solo work from children in the cast, as well as phenomenal performances from adult cast members.

Ann P. "Nip" Melocik, a retired parochial school physical education instructor, died Wednesday of heart failure at Gilchrist Hospice Care in Towson. The Loch Raven Village resident was 80. The daughter of a restaurateur and a homemaker, the former Ann Palmisano was born in Shamokin, Pa. She moved to Hamilton with her family in 1940 when her father opened several Palmisano's Sub Shops in the area. "She got her nickname 'Nip' from taking a little sip of her father's drink, so he named her 'Nipper,' and then everyone began calling her 'Nip,'" said a niece, Wendy Strassner of Atlanta.

Beginning with its debut 34 years ago, "The Sound of Music" has relied on two main elements. Originally created as a vehicle for Mary Martin, the show depends on a star -- or an actress of star quality -- in the leadrole of Maria, the postulant who serves as governess for the seven children of a strict widower, whom she eventually marries.The production that has launched a national tour at the Lyric Opera House stars Marie Osmond, who acquits herself adequately, if not quite admirably. She's good at conveying a tomboyish air, and she brings spunk to such songs as "Do Re Mi," "The Lonely Goatherd" and "So Long, Farewell," which Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein 2d imbued with a folk-song flavor.

Eighteen months after Richard Chamberlain "Edelweiss'ed" his way across the Lyric Opera House stage, "The Sound of Music" is back in town, but this time the most dramatic element of the production is happening offstage. Now it's "The Brady Bunch's" Barry Williams who gets top billing as Captain von Trapp, and Williams' decision to tear up his union card to headline a non-union show has drawn pickets from Actors' Equity on opening nights across the country. At the Lyric, the opening-night protest was low-key, even affable, with the pickets singing parodies of the show's songs and of "The Brady Bunch" theme song.

It won't be long before my kitchen walls are alive with the sound of music. About a month ago, I wandered into a wallpaper store in downtown Catonsville, killing time while my son took a music lesson across the street. I figured it was a nice warm shop in which I could browse without ever feeling compelled to buy anything. After all, there are no impulse-shoppers in the wallpaper category - who pops into a wallpaper store on a whim and comes out with 15 double rolls? When it comes to wallpaper, people typically look, look some more, and finally return to the store to look some more.

THERE'S SOMETHING to satisfy a variety of musical tastes this holiday season. There's a Christmas musical at Severna Park Baptist Church and a jazz concert at Severna Park High School. And there's a production of The Sound of Music that would make a perfect early holiday gift for your family. The Rogers and Hammerstein classic is the Children's Theater of Annapolis' next production - and a showcase for a band of talented area teen-agers. Kerry Deitrick, 16, fresh from playing a Navy nurse in the Second Stage production of South Pacific, trades an island setting and a stage full of flirtatious sailors for a mountaintop and a family of motherless children when she dons the habit of Sister-in-training Maria.

Live Arts Maryland delivered four splendid performances of Rodgers and Hammerstein's "The Sound of Music," this month, telling anew the story of the Austrian singing von Trapp family to justifiably enthusiastic applause and extended standing ovations. Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts in Annapolis was filled to near capacity for four performances just before Valentine's Day, and the standing ovations were "deafening," says Performing Arts Association of Linthicum President Jo Barker.

Has Baltimore become a haven for new music? It sure looks that way. "I've always been optimistic about new music here," says Baltimore-born, Peabody-trained composer Judah Adashi, founder of the Evolution Contemporary Music Series. "I'd definitely say that, with our series, Mobtown Modern, what Marin [Alsop] is doing at the BSO, and the High Zero Festival, we have a vibrant scene going. You might find something like this on every street corner in New York, but given the relative size of our town, there are really dynamic things on almost any given night," Adashi says.

Football has the crunching sound that goes with a hard tackle. In baseball, it's the crack of the bat on a homer. Ice hockey has the ping of a slap shot off the post. Professional indoor soccer? Often, it's loud music that can drown out the sounds of the game. The Major Indoor Soccer League has guidelines as to when music is supposed to be played and for how long. During the flow of a game, the policy is to have only instrumental music played with a limit of 30 seconds on to every one minute off, but that's not always adhered to in some venues.

Sometime between Halloween and Thanksgiving, we break out our Christmas CDs. Our children would request Christmas music early in the season when they were little, and now we think it is perfectly normal to hear Bing Crosby crooning "White Christmas" on the morning of Nov. 1. Sure, it's a little odd to be out in your yard, raking fall leaves to Julie Andrews' "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing" in your earphones. But we're used to it. Fortunately, we have quite a variety of music - Tchaikovsky, Mannheim Steamroller, the Vienna Boys' Choir, 'N Sync, Martina McBride, Ken Navarro, even the opera Amahl and the Night Visitors - so it never becomes tiresome.
