While Royal Shakespeare Company infiltrates Davidson College with a low-profile residency, several of the academic and performance events are open to the public. Among the most interesting RSC sidebars is a pair of appearances by the Renaissance group Ensemble Chaconne. At 2pm in Tyler-Tallman Hall of Sloan Music Center, they'll do a free one-hour lecture demonstration of the instruments and singing styles of Shakespeare's day, "As They Liked It: Musical Instruments and Performing Styles of Shakespeare's Time." Then at 8pm, the Chacs attack with a concert entitled "Measure for Measure: Music from Shakespeare's Plays." Tickets are $20. Call 704-894-2357. (Tannenbaum)

To experience the red carpet treatment firsthand, come to Joseph-Beth Booksellers, 4345 Barclay Downs Dr, today at 1pm and bask in the ambience set by the Charlotte Civic Orchestra.
