Given the competing events this week, listeners could suffer overload before Thanksgiving. On Thursday, Nov. 16 at 8 p.m., for example, Anonymous 4 with Darol Anger on fiddle and mandolin and Scott Nygaard on guitar offer "Gloryland," a program of traditional American music, in Meymandi Concert Hall. Single tickets range from $26-$30. Concurrently, in Duke Chapel, the N.C. Symphony's Schubert Festival continues with pianist Ignat Solzhenitsyn, the Choral Society of Durham, and conductor Grant Llewellyn. Prices are $19-$26. (This program will be repeated Nov. 17-18 in Raleigh.)

Saxophonist Branford Marsalis joins the Ciompi Quartet in Page Auditorium on Saturday, Nov. 18 at 8 p.m. for a new work by marc faris (see page 45) and music by Mark Kuss, Mozart and Mendelssohn. Tickets are $20 and $10 for children. The Triangle Youth Philharmonic, the best of the Philharmonic Association's several large ensembles, performs in Meymandi Concert Hall on Sunday, Nov. 19, at 3 p.m. Tickets are $8, seniors $5 and children $2. The Chamber Orchestra of the Triangle plays Bach and Schoenberg in the Carolina Theatre at 3 p.m. Adults are $20, but students of any age get in for free. In Chapel Hill at 3 p.m., sopranos Florence Peacock and Betsy Buchanan grace the Horace Williams House's series, which requests a $10 donation for admission. There's more singing and an eclectic program, too, in NCSU's Stewart Theatre at 4 p.m. on Sunday as the Raleigh Civic Chamber Orchestra and N.C. State Concert Choir offer the second of the season's "N.C. Connections" programs with music by the Moravians, Ted Geller, Lou Harrison and J. Mark Scearce. Tickets are $10. Students get in for $5.

And, as if that weren't enough for Sunday, the Concert Singers of Cary sound forth with a program of compositions from across the centuries involving psalm texts. This costs $15 (seniors and students $12) and is at Westwood Baptist Church at 4 p.m.
