There was a decidedly different feel to the  music when the Maryland Symphony Orchestra took the stage Sunday. With Nick Kendall on violin and a drummer sitting at a kit in the middle of the orchestra at The Maryland Theatre, the music took on a funky beat before fans who were anxious for the change. Kendall started his performance at the front row of the spectator section down from the stage. He looked out at the audience at one point and said, “I just need a hug.” “Here,” said MSO Music Director Elizabeth Schulze, welcoming Kendall into her arms.

HAGERSTOWN - Sydney Tooley, 13, started taking harp lessons because her mother wouldn't let her play the drums. She listened to a tape of harp music and decided the harp was a pretty instrument, she said. Sydney, 13, started playing the classical instrument in August and by Christmas was performing concerts for the candlelight tour of historic churches in Frederick, Md. She is performing again this year for visitors to Frederick's historic churches. Sydney also is one of 15 harpists in the Tri-State Harp Ensemble directed by Sally Lay that will be featured Saturday in a concert at Hagerstown Seventh-day Adventist Church.

Blues music usually comes down to two people feeling kind of sexy, explained blues guitarist Don Oehser. "It's not an ethereal thing. It's not a heady thing like classical music, where it's all in your head. (Blues is) all about the feeling of it," said Oehser. "And usually that feeling comes down to a man and a woman. " On Sunday, Oehser will perform at the Washington County Museum of Fine Arts as part of a program called "Grace and the Blues on This Sexy Planet," which will wed the blues with poetry.

CLEAR SPRING -- Little did Beth Smith realize the impact that a performance of "Camelot" at Wolf Trap years ago would have on her life. That performance pointed her in a direction that brought her back 10 years ago to Clear Spring High School, her alma mater, as drama teacher. "Art and music are so important for kids," Smith said. "For some kids, high school is their last chance for such an experience. " Smith fiercely strives to maintain a high level of such activities for her students in the wake of budget cuts in art and music nationwide.

SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. - When Laura MacKenzie performs traditional music, she's most at home in a small, intimate venue. The comfy atmosphere keeps in line with the theme of traditional music, which has its roots in Ireland and Scotland, and with musicians who shared their music in an informal way. MacKenzie will perform in such a venue when she takes part in the Upper Potomac Pipers Weekend in Shepherdstown. She'll share the stage with other bagpipers, including Bob Mitchell, Jerry O'Sullivan, Eliot Grasso and Dick Hensold, and with fiddler Elke Baker at 8 p.m. Saturday at Shepherd University's Reynolds Hall.
