Peabody Brass Players Present "Applause For A Cause"

Proceeds To Pay For Musical Instruments For Baltimore City Public School Students

Pianist Brian Ganz: Wounded by Chopin

Local pianist Brian Ganz has come a long way since deciding to pursue music at age 12, not much older than the age of his muse, child-prodigy Frédéric Chopin when he composed his first Polonaises. Since that moment, Ganz has studied with teachers Yida Novik and Claire Deene, as well as Leon Fleisher at the Peabody Conservatory of Music, where Ganz now teaches. He’s played in concert halls worldwide, and is also a member of the piano faculty and the current Artist-in-Residence at St. Mary’s College in Maryland.

Aaron Neville Concert in Annapolis

The first snow of the season canceled many of last night’s activities but it certainly did not deter the enthusiasm of Aaron Neville fans who sat packed into the Ram’s Head Onstage like sardines, swinging and clapping to the tunes that have earned the veteran R & B performer three platinum albums and top rankings on Billboard.

Parliament Funkadelic Funks Up Rams Head Live!

On the evening of Thursday December 2nd, George Clinton and his eternal band of galactic performers known loosely as Parliament Funkadelic showed up at Rams Head Live! In Baltimore ready to do what they’ve been doing in some form or another for nearly 40 years- leading an exuberant crowd through a journey of wildly energetic singing and dancing.

Host a Casual Cheese Tasting Party

Treat your friends and family to a global culinary adventure by hosting a casual cheese tasting party in place of a sit-down meal. MyGourmetConnection's suggested pairings of cold meats, cheeses, condiments and beverages will set the scene for a memorable get-together that's easy on the host and hostess.

All My Sons

All My Sons conveys a powerful mix of the love, loyalty, and lies that hold a typical American family together in the 1940s, until a crushing event challenges everything they have ever believed in. This classic Arthur Miller play explores the concept of the “American Dream” and the complex relationship between father and son—a struggle Miller dealt with in his person life.

311 Comes to Baltimore

311 (www.311.com) brought their enduring show power to Baltimore this past weekend, giving fans a run through the entire catalog and showing no signs that the band is giving up the ghost any time soon.

Caleb Stine's New Album, I Wasn't Built For a Life Like This, Finds Soul of America

Emerging from the widely-divergent Baltimore music scene is singer/ songwriter Caleb Stine who is the soul of that scene, and the best representation of a city he calls, “vibrant, troubled, and passionate."

Shady Side’s Own, Maggie Sansone

Maggie Sansone has long been a favorite local musician of mine since I took the music reigns of What’s Up?’s music coverage some nine years ago. Her lilting yet precise musicianship on the hammered dulcimer is perhaps one of the most accomplished of any American artist or UK for that matter.
