(November 14) GOING NATIVE Dancers chant and sway at the National Museum of the American Indian on the National Mall for two shows tomorrow, at 2 and 7:30pm. The Kevin Locke Native Dance Ensemble features the traditional dance and music of the Plains and Woodlands Nations. The program includes "Drum is the Thunder, Flute is the Wind," a Native American ballet, and the "Hoop Dance," expressing the unity of humankind.

(November 14 & 15) FINE CRAFTS SHOW The studio artists at the Lee Arts Center in Virginia host a fine arts craft show tomorrow and Sunday from 10 to 4 in Arlington. They fire up the kiln to about 1800 degrees for a Raku Party Fundraiser using smoke and fire to create Raku-style patterns and designs. You can make your own unique ceramic masterpiece.

(November 14) ALL-GERSHWIN The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra takes on a full evening of Gershwin under the direction of Marin Alsop Saturday night at The Music Center at Strathmore and Sunday at the Meyerhoff Symphony Hall in Baltimore. French pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet joins the BSO for the upbeat evening of classic Americana.
