Today and next week

• Odeon Chamber Orchestra performs at 2:30 p.m. today at the Rockport Opera House, focusing its efforts on Mendelssohn’s Symphony No. 1 in C major, as well as music from Puccini, Vivaldi and others. A second chance to hear Odeon musicians comes up at 6:30 p.m. May 25, also at the Rockport Opera House. The May 25 concert will feature the Odeon Junior Ensemble, the Odeon Youth Orchestra and the Odeon Adult Orchestra, all under the direction of Marshunda Smith.

The Odeon musicians represent the finest performers in Bay Chamber Concerts’ education program.

Both concerts are free. For information, visit or call 236-2823.


Coming up

• The slightly irreverent Stone Pinhead Ensemble opens the new musical “Jesus & The Pirates” on May 26 at the St. Lawrence Arts & Community Center, 76 Congress St., Portland. The show, with plenty of vulgarity, partial nudity and a possibly offensive portrayal of Jesus, will run Wednesday to Sunday for two weeks, closing June 6.

This play is about pirates who can’t pay their bar tab.

J.T. Nichols of Portland wrote the script, with music by Charles Brown Jr. Shows are 7:30 p.m. May 26-30 and June 2-6. Tickets cost $15, $10 for students and seniors. Visit
