Photos of Baltimoreans on display at City Hall

Since 1990 two Baltimore photographers, J. Brough Schamp and Tom Guidera III, have been setting up their camera and a white backdrop at various locations in Baltimore, and taking portraits of the people who happen by -- the young, the old, the in-between. Their subjects get a black and white Polaroid print before they leave, and the photographers later create larger, 16-by-20-inch prints. "Baltimore Portrait," a show of a group of these works, opens at the City Hall Courtyard Galleries this Thursday with a public reception from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

So far, Schamp and Guidera's photographing locations have included Mount Vernon, Hampden, Federal Hill, Fells Point and Druid Hill Park. Thursday they'll try a new location: City Hall, where they'll take pictures of the people attending the reception. The show runs through July 23 at City Hall, 100 N. Holliday St. Call (410) 396-4721. Of all the great requiems ever written, Mozart's is the most consoling and perhaps the most beautiful. The Handel Choir will present this beloved masterpiece at 3 p.m. today in Kraushaar Auditorium at Goucher College. With tenor Robert Petillo and soprano Phyllis Burg, the Handel Choir's music director, Herbert Dimmock, will also conduct Mozart's "Ave Verum" and Aaron Copland's "Appalachian Spring." Tickets are $14, and $10 for students and seniors. Tickets can be charged by calling (410) 625-1400. For further information, call (410) 366-6544.

Stephen Wigler Totem Pole Playhouse -- the summer theater in Fayetteville, Pa., that has long been a favorite of Baltimore theatergoers -- opens its season Saturday with "I Do!
