(October 1) ENCOUNTERS WITH TROMBONE Post-Classical Ensemble presents Encounters tomorrow (Thursday) night at 7:30, at the downtown D.C. Harman Center for the Arts. Baritone William Sharp joins trombonist David Taylor, reaching deep to perform "Death and the Maiden" and "Doppleganger," two of Schubert's most harrowing works, juxtaposed with a pair of jazzy and rambunctious new scores composed by Daniel Schnyder.

(September 30) MUSIC FOR CATS & DOGS Jammin' Java music club and cafe in Vienna, Virginia presents songs for cats and dogs tonight at 7. The Myriad performs around the country during The Humane Society's All Creatures fall music tour. One of MTV's "Breakout Artist of the Year," the Christian rock group appears in Vienna before heading off to 35 other cities, spreading their musical message of mercy and protection for animals everywhere.

(October 1) GRACE KELLY Grace Kelly makes an appearance at The Music Center at Strathmore tomorrow night at 7:30. Unlike the legendary actress, this sixteen-year-old performer carries a saxophone - she kicks off an evening of jazz, funk, and blues music backed by her quintet, still fresh from performances with musical greats Dave Brubeck and Wynton Marsalis earlier this year.
