If you don't enjoy watching cars speed through downtown streets, there's still plenty to do this weekend. The BSO plays a season preview concert tonight at the Meyerhoff, with music by Strauss, Stravinsky, Tower, and a movement from Dvorak's Cello Concerto featuring Principal Cellist Darius Skoraczewski. Tomorrow, Ursula Ricks brings the blues to Slainte Irish Pub, the Stan Killian Quartet celebrates the release of its new CD at An die Musik, and Milkman plays the grand opening of Stand Stage. Sunday, The Basebal Project—with Steve Wynn and Peter Buck!—comes to Rams Head in Annapolis.
Saturday and Sunday, actors portraying Civil War-era figures give guided tours through the Maryland Historical Society's Divided Voices exhibit.
And this is the final weekend for AVAM's What Makes Us Smile? exhibit, which was co-curated by Simpsons creator Matt Groening. It's worth noting that Bank of America Merrill Lynch is offering its cardholders free admission to AVAM on Saturday and Sunday. Apparently, the offer's good for the Reginald Lewis Museum, too.
