Google "viola jokes" and you'll never run out of material (How do you keep your violin from getting stolen? Put it in a viola case.) But hear a good violist, and the jokes fade instantly. The instrument, with its dusky timbre, has a soulful quality that has attracted many great composers, including those featured on a new CD, "Inner Voice," by longtime Baltimore Symphony Orchestra member Peter Minkler. On this Centaur Records release, beautifully accompanied by pianist Lura Johnson, he offers absorbing, incisive accounts of richly expressive works by Britten, Shostakovich, Arvo Part and the late George Rochberg.

The viola is an important musical instrument in a string ensemble, but rarely does it enjoy a moment of its own in the musical spotlight. Well, it gets more than just a moment in the spotlight when the Fine Arts Quartet is joined by guest violist Roberto Diaz for a Candlelight Concerts program on Saturday, Jan. 11, at 8 p.m. in Howard Community College's Smith Theatre. These five musicians will perform three Viola Quintets by Beethoven that don't get heard very often in a concert hall.

¿¿The past nips at 72-year-old blues singer Oscar Clifton day and night, especially night, when Viola, the woman he loved and lost 20 years earlier, seems to float back into his life on beams of moonlight. On such occasions, Oscar becomes a willing partner in what might be described as a “dance of the holy ghosts” - the no-caps title of an earnest, if not entirely satisfying, work by Marcus Gardley now on the boards at Center Stage. Gardley calls this “a play on memory,” and it's partially autobiographical.

Oscar nominee Viola Davis is featured on the cover of the February issue of the LA Times Magazine. While the article focuses on her work as an actor, mentor and soon-to-be producer, I think the real story is her hair - her natural hair. In a four-picture spread by photographer Ruvan Afanador, Ms. Davis' radiance is undeniable. With the exception of Whoopi Goldberg, this marks the first time, in recent memory, that an A-list, African-American, Oscar-nominated actress has dared to go "bare," so to speak.

A face can make a movie work. As a black maid employed by a white family in Mississippi in 1963, Viola Davis has such a quietly intense face that it says all that needs to be said in "The Help. " Having grown up under Jim Crow laws, this maid named Aibileen suppresses her bitter feelings beneath a subservient smile. America may be entering an era of civil rights reforms, but she's living much as her slave grandmother did. When Aibileen does speak, her words are so carefully measured that you realize she is mentally calculating how to get through yet another day with her job and a measure of dignity intact.

Connecting teen audiences to the classics can be tricky, but the Laurel Mill Playhouse Shakespeare Teen Theater's summer production of "Twelfth Night" successfully sticks to the basics and offers pure Elizabethan fun. Director Michael Hartsfield, of Laurel, wisely sets the show as written — in ancient Illyria on the coast of the Adriatic Sea, a decision as necessary to creating an authentic atmosphere as James Raymond's artfully designed set...

The Orioles' much-maligned bullpen has rarely been singled out for praise this season, but that was the case Monday after the team's 4-3 loss to the Seattle Mariners at Safeco Field. That the Orioles even had a chance to win the game was because the bullpen came in after Jake Arrieta lasted just 21/3 innings and pitched 52/3 scoreless frames. Making his third appearance since being activated from major league baseball's restricted list, right-hander Alfredo Simon inherited Arrieta's bases-loaded-and-one-out jam in the third and struck out Carlos Peguero and Chone Figgins . Simon allowed just two hits, walked one and struck out four over 32/3 innings.
