The lowdown -- If you haven't sampled the energy of the Maryland State Boychoir, whose members come from all backgrounds and just about all parts of the state, its annual spring concert should make a perfect introduction to the group. The full spectrum of the organization will be participating -- the concert choir, the treble choir, the changed voice choir and even the handbell choir. A wide repertoire is on tap, from classical to folk and gospel.
If you go -- The concert is at 4 p.m. Sunday at Cathedral Church of St. Matthew, 3400 Norman Ave. Tickets are $10-$15. Call 410-668-2003.
The lowdown -- There'll be lots of clowning around at the Theatre Project again starting tonight when Le Petomane Theatre Ensemble of Louisville, Ky., presents Siddown, a two-person clown piece that incorporates everything from go-go dancing to operetta. The husband-and-wife team of Gregory Maupin and Abigail Bailey Maupin don the red noses in this whimsical piece.
If you go -- Showtimes at the Theatre Project, 45 W. Preston St., are 8 p.m. Thursdays-Saturdays, and 3 p.m. Sundays, through April 22. Tickets are $16 general admission, $11 for students and seniors. Call 410-752-8558 or go to missiontix.com.
