(November 12-15) YOU BETTER SHOP AROUND After traipsing past untouchable artifacts in galleries and museums, you've now got an opportunity to take something home.

(November 13) AM I TOO LOUD? The University of Maryland School of Music presents Am I Too Loud?, a concert at The Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center in College Park, Maryland, Friday night at 8 p.m. The show tips its hat to piano-playing accompanists everywhere, paying homage to collaboration with Britten's Cabaret Songs and Schubert's fishy "Trout" Quintet.
