Music series in Ocean City

What Is It: Paul Mack Somers, from the Bay Atlantic Symphony, has a long-running local series of lectures on music history, most of them leaning toward classical topics. But his talk today at the Ocean City Free Public Library has a bit of a diffferent flavor. He calls it "Music During and Between the 20th Century Wars: Irving Berlin to the Beatles and Beyond."

What To Expect: Somers, a music journalist who is also a composer, typically goes into some social history along with all the musical history he discusses. And there is plenty of history in this period, as most of you recall. He also plays examples and encourages questions from the audience.

Event Info: The lecture is free and runs 10:30 a.m. to noon today in meeting room N116 in Ocean City's library, at 1735 Simpson Ave. For more details, call 609-399-2434, ext. 5238, or see
