On Friday, the Annapolis Wind Symphony will kick off the new First Fridays at First Presbyterian concert series in a program featuring works by Vaghan Williams, Respighi, and more. The event begins at 8 p.m., and ends around 9:30 p.m.
As Maryland's only philanthropic professional arts organization, it's fitting that the AWS' performance will benefit the a local charity. All $20 of the price of admission will go directly toward the Winter Relief Homeless Shelter. To date, the AWS has raised over $14,000 for non-profits in Anne Arundel County.
If, however, you're going to find yourself on the Shore this weekend, then you may want to make a trip to St. Michaels.
At the town's branch of the Talbot County Free Library, Mr. James Lane will present a discussion entitled "Marsh, Maroons and Mariners: Identity and Community on Delmarva," which will revolve around traditional maritime culture, community identity, and sustainability.
A trained ethnographer and community scholar, Lane has worked with professional folklorists, oral historians, writers, and local communities throughout the mid-Atlantic. His presentation will take place on Saturday at 2 p.m.
