Angela Taylor to sing at Walters

   There's certainly no shortage of talented female singer/songwriters in music today, and while this is great for music fans, it can make breaking into the business difficult for aspiring young female musicians. How does one make oneself stand out from the crowd?
   If you're Peabody alumna Angela Taylor, you become a professional at every aspect of music making. While Taylor terms her style "alternapop," she holds bachelor's degrees from Peabody in recording and performance, as well as a master's in computer music. She also teaches computer music at University of Maryland. One of her most vivid memories from her JHU undergraduate days, she says, is "being the only girl in my Signals and Systems class."
   Taylor will be the featured artist at the First Thursday celebration at the Walters Art Gallery at 600 North Charles Street in Mount Vernon from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday, Oct.7. While First Thursday is a Charles Street tradition, this month's event is aimed especially at college students. The Downtown Partnership will offer

free shuttles from area colleges to Mount Vernon for the event.
   Taylor mainly sings and plays flute in her live performances. She was recently named the city's Best Solo Artist in the City Paper's Best of Baltimore Readers' Poll, and made it to the final round of the Lilith Fair Talent Search in 1998 and 1999. Taylor performs frequently in the Baltimore area and has a CD coming out in late 1999.
