Teen-age violinist Leila Josefowicz will give free concert
Leila Josefowicz is slowly setting the world on fire. This 15-year-old, who was described in the New York Times as having "the apple-cheeked freshness of a young Ann-Margaret," is considered one of the most brilliant violinists on the scene today. Although she's only permitted to give about one concert a month -- she's already performed with the Cleveland and Philadelphia orchestras and the Los Angeles Philharmonic -- one of them will be a free one this afternoon at 3 at Har Sinai Congregation (6300 Park Heights Ave.). Although many tickets have already been given out, people without them will be seated at 2:50. For further information, call (410) 764-2882. Pumpkin Theatre's production of "The Tale of the Frog Prince," with a script by Kathy Hotcher and music by Bill Roser, opens Saturday at Roland Park Elementary Middle School, 5207 Roland Ave.
Performance times are 1:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. Oct. 16, 17 and 23. A sign-language interpreter will be present at the 3:30 p.m. performance on Oct. 17. Tickets are $6 in advance and $7 at the door. For more information, call (410) 323-9316.
J. Wynn Rousuck Trina Collins, founder of the Philadelphia-based company Danceteller, will perform her one-woman show, "Reminiscence of Southern Girlhood," at the Theatre Project, 45 W. Preston St., beginning Wednesday.
With original music by Evan Solot and direction by the Theatre Project's own Philip Arnoult, this movement theater piece was created out of interviews with the women, both black and white, who shaped the culture in the small Louisiana town where Collins grew up. Featured at this summer's Edinburgh Fringe Festival, "Reminiscence" will be performed at 8 p.m. Wednesdays through Saturdays and at 3 p.m. Sundays, through Oct. 31. Tickets are $14. For further information, call (410) 752-8558.
