Since 1976, the Avery Fisher Ca­reer Grants have iden­ti­fied emerg­ing mu­si­cians of ex­cep­tional prom­ise. The phi­lan­thropist (and hi-fi equip­ment pi­o­neer) ex­plained why: “They are like flow­ers that must bloom at a par­tic­u­lar time. They have to be helped at the right mo­ments.” Re­cip­i­ents have in­cluded vi­o­lin­ist Ste­fan Jackiw (be­low right) in 2002 and pi­anist Max Levin­son in 1999. The two team up to per­form sonatas by Mozart, Co­p­land, and Brahms (his Third), as well as Lu­toslawski’s Su­bito, at 8 p.m. on Fri­day, Nov. 19, in the Great

Hall of St. John’s Col­lege, 1160 Camino de Cruz Blanca. Tick­ets are $15 at the door; call 984-6000. Mov­ing Peo­ple Dance presents the sec­ond in­stall­ment of its bian­nual New Dances se­ries, which show­cases con­tem­po­rary works by 10 chore­og­ra­phers, at 7:30 p.m. Fri­day and Satur­day, Nov. 19 and 20. Per­for­mances in­clude an im­pro­vi­sa­tion duet with live mu­sic, a mod­ern piece with lo­cal adult dancers, solo works by pro­fes­sional dancers and lo­cal dance stu­dents, and, to get you in the mood for the hol­i­days, an ex­cerpt from The

Nutcracker. Both per­for­mances take place at the in­ti­mate, 130-seat Mov­ing Peo­ple Dance Per­for­mance Space, 1583 Pacheco St., and tick­ets are $12. Call 438-9180 for more in­for­ma­tion. Whether she’s sing­ing one of her orig­i­nal songs like the clever “You’d Look Swell in Noth­ing” or “Un­der Santa Fe Skies,” or belt­ing out a jazz stan­dard or a Ca­role King cover, singer-song­writer Su­san Abod does it with pas­sion, a sense of style, and good hu­mor. She can make au­di­ences re­mem­ber a lost lover one minute and have them gig­gling at the lo­cal cul­ture of ther­apy over­dose the next. At 7 p.m. Wed­nes­day, Nov. 24, Abod per­forms with pi­anist Bert Dal­ton, bassist Milo Jaramillo, and per­cus­sion­ist Dave Brady at Tiny’s Res­tau­rant and Lounge (off Early St., 983-9817). There is no charge for ad­mis­sion. When Ge­orge Frid­eric Han­del un­veiled his or­a­to­rio Mes­siah in Dublin in 1742, ad­ver­tise­ments begged “that the Ladies who hon­our this Per­for­mance with their Pres­ence would be pleased to come with­out Hoops” and that “the Gentle­men are de­sired to come with­out their Swords, to in­crease au­di­ence ac­com­mo­da­tion yet fur­ther.” Mes­siah afi­ciona­dos will doubt­less fol­low those rea­son­able re­quests when the Santa Fe Sym­phony & Cho­rus (Tom Hall con­duct­ing) of­fers this ev­er­green mas­ter­work at the Len­sic

Per­form­ing Arts Cen­ter (211 W. San Fran­cisco St.) at 4 p.m. on Sun­day, Nov. 21. A free pre-con­cert lec­ture takes place at 3 p.m. Tick­ets ($20-$70) are avail­able from Tick­ets Santa Fe at the Len­sic (988-1234, www.tick­etssantafe.org).
