“Sacred Structures,” the fourth Masterworks concert of the Maryland Symphony Orchestra's 30th anniversary season, explores the connections between early Christian music and the music of the concert hall, Music Director Elizabeth Schulze wrote in an email. Each of the four composers used ancient Christian chant music as a jumping off point in their works on this weekend's program, she wrote. Nikolay Rimsky-Korsakov depicts a sacred ceremony in Russian Easter Festival Overture. Michael Daugherty, inspired by the grand architecture of the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris and the Empire State Building in New York, wrote “Raise the Roof.” “Prayer of St. Gregory” is Alan Hovhaness' prayer without words, and Ottorino Respighi's “Church Windows” portrays images in stained-glass windows.

Hey, fellow gamers! If you're hooked on "Dance Dance Revolution," then "Dance Praise the Remix" is probably a game for you. That is, if you like Christian music. With the same basic features as "DDR" (crazy-fast songs and quick dances), "Dance Praise the Remix" also has a few differences, but they're not show-stoppers. One of the differences is the tune list. Instead of the catchy, pop songs we're used to in "DDR," all of the choices in "Dance Praise" are upbeat religious songs by popular Christian bands, such as Casting Crowns, BarlowGirl and Red. Also, "Dance Praise the Remix" is easier than "Dance Dance Revolution.

HAGERSTOWN - Christian music fans packed the sanctuary of Bethel Assembly Life House Church Sunday night, squeezing chairs into the aisle and standing along the walls for a chance to see the Grammy-nominated group Mercy Me perform live. The venue, one of the largest church-based performance spaces in Hagerstown, proved too small for the band's local fan base, and promoter Vertical Concerts ended up having to refund dozens of tickets to fans who preferred not to stand, volunteer Natalie Tardosky said.

The line stretched along the parking lot, around the building and doubled back again. Those at the back of the line could barely believe how many people they had just walked past. While those at the front had been there since at least 4 p.m., some had been there even earlier. By 5:55 p.m., they were chilly, tired and ready to rock. More than 2,000 people lined up Saturday in Williamsport to hear one of contemporary Christian music's most popular bands, the Newsboys, rock Gateway Ministries with Kutless, Disciple and Carlos Whittaker.
