The Baltimore Choral Arts Society presents its own version of a "Three B's" concert at Goucher College's Kraushaar Auditorium. The 1997-98 season begins with three choral works by Leonard Bernstein, Benjamin Britten and Robert Sirota. Bernstein's "Chichester Palms," with its jazzy style and sly evocation of "West Side Story," is one of his most popular works. Britten's sprawling cantata "St. Nicolas" features a full chorus, orchestra, piano duet, boy choir, tenor soloist, as well as two occasions when the audience joins in the singing.

"Luciano Pavarotti: The Myth of the Tenor," by Jurgen Kesting, translated by Susan H. Ray. Northeastern University Press. 237 pages. $24.95.Missed out on Pavarotti this year? Probably not. Even if you weren't checking out his highly publicized high-C batting average at the Metropolitan Opera this past spring, you probably noticed him with his bikini-clad secretary/girlfriend in Newsweek, caught the "Seinfeld" episode with the Three Tenors story line. All these things prove true the starting point of Jurgen Kesting's "Luciano Pavarotti: The Myth of the Tenor": Pavarotti is "no longer famous because of the quality of his singing, but simply because he is so incredibly famous."

Coward The Noel Coward Songbook. Ian Bostridge, tenor; Jeffrey Tate, pianist. (EMI Classics 5 57374) English tenor Ian Bostridge has emerged in the past few years as an unusually insightful interpreter of art songs. His exceptional taste, imagination and attention to diction and the myriad nuances of a text (of a single word, for that matter) put him in the forefront of today's vocal artists. Other tenors can produce warmer, richer tones, to be sure, but few can penetrate a song as memorably and movingly.

Tenor Carlo Bergonzi, looking for all the world like the doting grandfather he is, sits attentively in the elegant Tremont Plaza Hotel suite where he and his wife Adele are staying during the Baltimore Opera Company's current run of Donizetti's "L'Elisir d'Amore."Mr. Bergonzi, who will sing the role of Nemorino in the production that opens tomorrow night, smiles easily when asked how a 68-year-old performer like himself can convincingly portray Donizetti's lovestruck 18-year-old peasant swain.

The title role in Donizetti's "Poliuto" has always attracted star tenors. For some reason, however, this piece of operatic exotica about sex and martyrdom in ancient Rome has never been performed in North America.That situation changes this Saturday at George Washington University when the Opera Camerata of Washington gives the American premiere of "Poliuto." Bolivian tenor Lucio Paz, who will sing the lead role, will be joined by soprano Sharon Christman and baritone Jason Stearns. Micaele Sparacino will conduct the orchestra and chorus and the Opera Camerata.

In real life, one occasionally sees wealthy and powerful men romantically squiring women who are young enough to be their daughters and even their granddaughters. In the operatic world this is almost unheard of. The rare tenor who goes on singing past his later 50s has usually left behind romantic roles to assume character roles. Basses and baritones occasionally sing well into their 60s -- but they take the parts of older men.This makes the case of Carlo Bergonzi little less than amazing.
