In the beginning, people referred to Project as the group with the beat-boxing flute. But Project's string bass player, Peter Seymour, sees it a bit differently, in broader terms. Seymour says Project is the embodiment of the contemporary chamber music ensemble, except this breed of musicians -- bassist Seymour, flutist Greg Pattillo and cellist Eric Stephenson -- have expanded on this concept of classical music. Hence the beat-boxing flute, a tenet of "classical" hip-hop.

BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. - Why go to a chamber music concert? Because there is no comparison between listening to recorded classical music and hearing and seeing a live concert performance, say members of a Morgan County-based ensemble. The Warm Springs Chamber Ensemble, comprised of Berkeley Springs residents Heather Worley, Linda Whitesitt and Patricia Stringer, recently performed some of the most beautiful chamber music ever written for string instruments and piano. Chamber music is a form of classical music performed in an intimate atmosphere, which gained popularity in the 1800s.

Cello player Matt Haimovitz, who will perform Thursday night at WestSide Cafe in Frederick, Md., was recognized as a prodigy when he was very young. But one day in 1984, when he was 13, he was asked to perform the next day in New York's Carnegie Hall, one of the most famous concert venues in the world. He had one day to study the music - a string quintet by Schubert. And who were the other four musicians performing with young Matt Haimovitz? Isaac Stern, Shlomo Mintz, Pinchas Zukerman and Mstislav Rostropovich - four of the best string players in the world.

SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. - It seemed only fitting that British guitarist Adrian Legg took the phone call for this interview from a Chicago hotel room. It was even more fitting that at the time of the call, he said he was in the middle of writing in his journal about last night's gig gone wrong. In fact, he compared the Chicago venue from the night before with some of the seedy Irish pubs he's played in. "Except there wasn't any blood at this one," Legg said, laughing. Hopefully, he will have better luck in West Virginia this weekend.

" As the winner of the Washington County Teen Idol contest Saturday night at The Maryland Theatre, Hill will enjoy an all expenses-paid trip to tryouts in New York in November. "It's always been my passion since I was about like 3," said Hill, who spoke by phone late Sunday after a performance with the Shepherd University Masterworks Chorale.

In fairy tales, the heroines are always doing something nice for someone else. Little Red Riding Hood was visiting her sick grandma. Belle found the beauty in the Beast. And Wendy watched over her brothers and assisted Peter Pan in fighting pirates. When dancers at City Ballet School in Hagerstown dress as famous literary characters this weekend, they'll be doing something nice, too. The money raised from their Princess Tea Party will benefit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
