The Navy's jazz ensemble, the Commodores, will perform at 1:30 today at the University of Maryland's Center of Adult Education, as part of the World Saxophone Congress. The performance was listed incorrectly in last Friday's Weekend section.

LET THE BANDS commence to play! The outdoor summer concerts have begun, and all over D.C., Maryland and Virginia, various stages and fields will hum to the beat of many different bands. From the Carter Barron Amphitheater to the Baker Park Bandshell; from Merriweather Post Pavilion to the Sylvan Theater on the Mall; from Wolf Trap to Cabin John Regional Park -- all kinds of musicians are tuning up to help ease us through the heat and coax us out of our air-conditioned caves.

The list of musicians includes the likes of B.B. King, Jerry (Ice Man) Butler, Chaka Khan, Stanley Turrentine, Eric Clapton, Emmylou Harris, the Grateful Dead, Peter, Paul and Mary and enough military bands to march you into fall. Whatever your favorite music, there'll be someone around to play it.

Remember that the following schedules ar subject to change. Musicians are notoriously unpredictable, so make some phone calls before packing the cold cuts. Happy listening. DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA
