Baltimore Symphony Orchestra music director Marin Alsop has canceled her scheduled appearances this week with the ensemble. Her mother, a cellist who spent several decades in the New York City Ballet Orchestra, died late last week in upstate New York at the age of 82.

BSO principal pops conductor Jack Everly will be on the podium for the concerts, which feature the showing of two 1920s Charlie Chaplin films, "The Kid" and "The Idle Class," with the orchestra playing arrangements of Chaplin's musical scores. Both of these silent movies revolve around Chaplin's iconic character known as the Little Tramp, which he created 100 years ago.

Performances are Thursday and Friday at Meyerhoff Hall, Saturday at Strathmore.
