Thanksgiving's early this year, and November's always a busy month, so there's lots to do. Early music fans have a real treat as Duke's Centers for French, Francophone and Canadian Studies and the French Consul present Les Voix Humaines in music by Sieur de Sainte-Colombe and Marin Marais on Friday, Nov. 3, in the Divinity School's Goodson Chapel at 8 p.m. The price is $15.

On Saturday, Nov. 4, Triangle Brass Band and a host of guest artists celebrate the organization's 20th anniversary in Fletcher Opera Theater in Raleigh. This is the best of our regional brass bands, and the program reflects the wonderful repertoire of these hallowed ensembles. The concert starts at 7:30 p.m., and the tickets are $10 and $5 for students.

We thought we were in the middle of the last season of the Mallarmé Chamber Players, but they've won a reprieve and are carrying on (albeit with limited concerts after this year). In any event, it's celebration time as they offer chamber music by Robert Schumann, Duke's Stephen Jaffe and others at 3 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 5, in Duke's Nelson Music Room. The artists are Arturo Ciompi, clarinet, Jonathan Bagg, viola, and Donald Berman, piano, and the price of admission is $15.

But don't stop with chamber music on Sunday. Instead, head downtown to the Carolina Theatre at 5:30 p.m. to hear the two wonderful winners of the Durham Symphony Orchestra's concerto competition. Violinist Eliza Bagg (Jonathan's daughter) plays Sibelius and cellist Alan Toda-Ambaras essays Prokofiev with the DSO under the leadership of Alan Neilson. Tickets are $18, students $6, children under 12 free.

And Tuesday, Nov. 7 brings two important events in direct competition: Pianists Ignat Solzhenitsyn and Leander Bien in music by Schubert, offered in Fletcher Opera Theater, and cellist Antonio Meneses (of the Beaux Arts Trio) and the Orquestra de São Paulo, offering music by Villa-Lobos and others in Duke's Page Auditorium. Both events are at 8 p.m.
