Laurie Anderson - calling from the Philharmonie de Paris, scoping it out for a show - is balancing many things. That balancing act will be on display in her Language of the Future show at Princeton's McCarter Theatre on Friday evening. Everything this pioneering performance artist/electronic music composer does is about the next thing, something in the future. "I don't think I'll ever have a message, or a philosophy," Anderson said. "I don't want to telegraph anything coded. " Her debut directorial full-length film, Heart of a Dog , commissioned by the Franco-German TV network Arte, was supposed to be about a philosophy of life - "until I told them that I didn't have one, repeatedly," she said, laughing.

For the last year now, state Rep. Sam Rohrer, a Berks County Republican, has been investigating the state's ACCESS program, which enables school districts to be reimbursed through Medicaid for services to special-education and emotionally troubled students. Some schools run the program through on-site health clinics; some of those are funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. How these facts became a conspiracy is anyone's guess. But sure enough, during a hearing in Harrisburg last Tuesday, a health-care attorney told Mr. Rohrer's panel that the ACCESS program and the health clinics are really part of a covert scheme to create a national health-care system, paid for by the Princeton-based Johnson foundation.

Princeton assistant men's track coach Steve Dolan calls senior Donn Cabral the ultimate competitor. Cabral's teammates refer to him as Track Jesus, because they trust him. "We know he's a warrior," sophomore Tom Hopkins said. Late Friday afternoon at Franklin Field, Cabral had to be. Because just about every other anchor in the closing 1,600-meter leg of the Penn Relays Distance Medley Championship of America race was within spitting distance of him. From the time he took the baton until they all headed around the last turn, they were virtually together, 13 strong if you're keeping score.

PRINCETON - The summertime campus here is annually overrun with pianists (and a few violinists) when the Golandsky Institute welcomes artists young and old to learn healthy techniques that allow them to play well for as long as they love music. There's also a piano festival (ending Saturday) showcasing faculty and students expressing themselves without extraneous effort. The exception of sorts was a Thursday recital at Taplin Auditorium of Chinese pianist Wei Luo, the latest Chinese wonder to hit the Curtis Institute.

The board of Princeton Healthcare System, which less than three years ago opened a new hospital in Plainsboro, N.J., has decided it's time to "evaluate the option to partner with another healthcare system," chief executive Barry S. Rabner told doctors in an email Friday. "Partnering with another healthcare provider could help us build on our position of strength," Rabner said in the letter. "It could help PHCS to adapt to new regulations and new and dramatically different ways in which health care is remibursed," he said.

THE TRUTH is that all of the historical references attached to yesterday's NCAA Division I men's lacrosse championship game had no impact on the play at Lincoln Financial Field. The University of Denver and the University of Maryland last played in 2008 - before Bill Tierney left Princeton to take over the Pioneers program and before John Tillman became coach of the Terrapins. Talk about other teams in each program not accomplishing this or not winning that was really just talk.

PRINCETON - Operas written at the dawn of the art form have blank-slate possibilities: Presented here on Wednesday under John Eliot Gardiner, Monteverdi's 1607 Orfeo was a time-travel experience from a world we can barely imagine, while also presenting a viable future model for how special-interest pieces can live outside the opera house. The first great opera ever written, Orfeo is infrequently heard in the U.S., with only a handful of Philadelphia performances in the last 40 years.

With the release of Hometown Girl , her 1987 debut album, Mary Chapin Carpenter launched a career that now includes 18 top-20 country singles, five Grammy Awards, and induction into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame. Her literate blend of folk, pop, and country incorporates influences from Emmylou Harris to Eudora Welty. For Carpenter, who will perform Thursday at the Scottish Rite Auditorium in Collingswood and April 25 at McCarter Theatre in Princeton, the seeds of her success were planted in Princeton, where she spent her formative years.
