Bundled in their winter coats and shivering from the December cold, members of Hagerstown Choral Arts streamed into Trinity Lutheran Church on a recent evening for rehearsal. Their weekend performance of Handel’s “Messiah” was just days away and on this night it was about fine tuning. Clutching their scores, the singers did what comes naturally. First one voice, and then another, and soon the room was swelling with song so rich and strong it almost spilled outdoors.
by KATE COLEMAN | May 20, 2004 Mary Chapin Carpenter will be at The Maryland Theatre on Friday night. The concert is one of 40 she'll perform in support of her latest album, "Between Here and Gone," released last month. Carpenter wrote all 12 songs, and the CD is the first she's recorded in Nashville, Tenn., something that strikes her as ironic, since she's been on the Sony Nashville label for years. Although Carpenter's five Grammy Awards have been in the country genre, her music doesn't fit neatly in that pigeonhole.

Here I go again. Although I've said many times that I'm not a "music writer," I often find myself writing about music. Well, of course. I've been previewing Maryland Symphony Orchestra concerts for years. But here and now, I'm talking about my column that runs the first Sunday of every month in Lifestyle. Even a quick glance at the archives reveals how often I reference song titles or lyrics to make a point. No, I am not a "music writer" in the technical sense of the term.
