Gloriae Dei Cantores to sing
Gloriae Dei Cantores, which is developing a reputation as one of the finest choral groups in the United States, will appear Wednesday at 8 p.m. at the Basilica of the Assumption. Although the singers and their music director, Elizabeth Patterson, are noted for a wide repertory, they have developed a special identification with Russian music, and Wednesday's concert will include music by Glinka and Georgy Sviridov, who is Russia's greatest choral conductor as well as a well-known composer. Works by Buxtehude, de Lassus, Gabrieli and Copland are also on the program. Tickets are $12.50 and are available at Recordmasters at the Rotunda, (410) 366-1250, and at Kenilworth, (401) 828-5666, and at the door. The basilica is located at Cathedral and Mulberry streets. No, "BEAMS," opening at the BAUhouse Saturday, is not an exhibition of klieg lights. The title stands for BAUhouse Emerging Artists' Multimedia Survey, and it's the third annual of these shows -- can you believe the BAUhouse has been with us that long?
One of the features of this show is that the jury which picked its 52 artists consisted of three experienced curators and four emerging visual artists and art professionals. This is in line with the BAUhouse's "commitment to emerging artists to give them the opportunity to develop a better understanding of the exhibition process." The show opens with a Halloween costume reception Saturday at 8:30 p.m., 1713 N. Charles St. Call (410) 659-5520.
John Dorsey Beginning Wednesday, the Theatre Project will launch its program of local residencies with "Family Masks," an examination of a dysfunctional family by Splitting Image Theatre Company. This visceral, movement-oriented work features actors using masks to represent the archetypal roles -- hero, scapegoat, mascot, etc. -- frequently adopted by families with an alcoholic parent.
Written by Theresa Francomacaro, with direction by Harvey Doster and movement design by Binnie Ritchie Holum, "Family Masks" has continued to evolve since its 1989 debut. Show times at the Theatre Project, 45 W. Preston St., are Wednesdays through Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 3 p.m., through Nov. 8. Tickets are $14. For more information, call (410) 752-8558.
