Spirits ran high on the bus trip Saturday morning that took Cherokee High School's Concert Choir southward to a most auspicious gig indeed - performing during the holiday season tour at the White House that afternoon. There was excitement in the seats. The 34-student choir from Marlton broke into their own version of Barry Manilow's "Copacabana" as their coach powered along. At 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., they were shown into a dressing room with photographs of luminaries like Yo-Yo Ma (Ooh!

'Here we go," Vic Stevens announces from behind his drum kit. "One. Two. One-two-three. " Stevens and six other members of the Applejacks roll out a summery song called "Vera Cruz," and Roz Appell starts to tap her foot. "It's thrilling," says the Cherry Hill resident, whose dad, Dave, wrote the tune. "I only heard it [on a recording] in his basement studio. Now it's coming to life. " That's the idea. Family, friends, and fans of the late songwriter, producer, and trombone/guitar/keyboard player - whose Philly-centric popular music career spanned nearly a half-century - are eager to share some of Dave Appell's last songs with the world.

The music isn't likely to sound like anything most Americans have heard: The polarities between Arab and Western music, both obvious and subtle, are such that their fusion in this Saturday's concert, Words Adorned: Andalusian Poetry and Music, at Bryn Mawr College might seem impossible. Then it becomes perfectly doable. "It's supposed to blend the sounds of this pluralistic, cosmopolitan city," said Hanna Khoury, music director of Al-Bustan Seeds of Culture Music Program, which instigated the year-in-the-planning concert with the Crossing choir in works by two Syrian-born composers.

'As you could guess," says film director Sean Evans, "Roger is not afraid to speak his mind. " That unbridled spirit is Roger Waters, cofounder and former front man of Pink Floyd, and, now, codirector with Evans of a documentary on the progressive British band's celebrated theatrical work, The Wall. The film was released this week on BluRay/DVD. Waters was in his 30s when he conceived the rock opera, about the psychotic decay of a fictional rock artist named Pink, drawn in part from Water's own inner turmoil.

In theory, musicians can inhabit pastoral music just as convincingly in a coal mine as in the late-autumn graciousness of Bucks County. Musical poetry, after all, comes from within. But Sunday's Vaughan Williams and Elgar program by Concordia Chamber Players (the second in the group's five-concert season) benefited not only from its setting - Trinity Episcopal Church at a picturesque hilltop crossroad in Solebury - but the sense that the season's days are numbered. Tenor Nicholas Phan, who has a prestige career in concerts more than in opera, sang Vaughan Williams' Merciless Beauty and On Wenlock Edge , supported with vibrant synergy from the quintet of Concordia regulars, all conspiring to give extra dimensions to the total effect of the composer's word settings.

You can be fairly sure that classical music is getting the message across when you see a big gray teddy bear hanging over the side of the first tier in Verizon Hall, waving his paws in the air to tunes from Danny Elfman's The Nightmare Before Christmas . The bear wasn't intended to be part of the show at Saturday morning's first of five Philadelphia Orchestra family concerts this season, but of course the orchestra has a future only to the...
