This Sunday at 3 p.m., the Londontowne Symphony Orchestra will present an array of music inspired by the champions of French Composition. Lead by Maestro Taras Kyrsa, they will perform classics such as Ives' "The Unanswered Question," and Debussy's Prelude to "The Afternoon of a Faun."

Maestro Kyrsa and the orchestra will be joined by renowned violinist Solomiya Ivakhiv, who will close the program with Barber's Violin Concerto.

The concert, entitled "The French Connection," will take place at Annapolis Senior High School. Tickets are $15, and can be purchased at, or for a special low price at There, you can buy two for the price of one.

Over on the Eastern Shore, the town of Chestertown is holding its own concert. In commemoration of the life and works of the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. Washington College will host "Songs of the Civil Rights Movement."

The concert, which is free and open to the public, features local talent including Sombarkin, Pilgrim Travelers, New Gospelite, Bob and Pam Ortiz, the Mt. Olive Gospel Choir, and many more.

Ample parking is available on the Washington College Campus and along Campus Avenue. And, be sure to come to part two of the Dr. King celebrations--the annual MLK Breakfast takes place on Monday at 7 a.m. at the Rock Hall Fire Company.

But, if you're not feeling like going hyper local this weekend, and you happen to be a motorcycle fan, then you'll definitely want to head to D.C.

Throughout the weekend, the Washington Convention Center will play host to the Progressive International Motorcycle Show.

The largest show of its kind, it features the Smage Brothers Stunt Show, the Kawakasi Design-A-Bike, the Ultimate Builder Custom Bike Show, the Dream Pavilion, the Learning Curve, a marketplace, the Swag Wagon presented by Allstate, and, if you can believe it, much more.
