4 2 GROUP TRAVEL LE ADER T H E P E N N M U S E U M P H I L A D E L P H I A A few times a year, the internationally renowned group Relâche, a chamber ensemble dedicated to contemporary music, performs along with old silent films in Widener Hall at the Penn Museum in Philadelphia. In February, the octet played the newly expanded live music score by Chris McGlumphy accompanying the recently discovered complete version of Max Linder's 1921 silent film comedy "Be My Wife." The group opened its fourth season in residence at the Penn last fall with a program that included new music composed with inspiration from some of the museum's oldest artifacts: Mesopotamian cuneiform tablets. During the summer, the P.M. @ Penn Museum Summer Nights con- cert series kicks into gear with a live music performance every Wednesday evening in the outdoor garden courtyard. Last summer's series featured performances from the West Philadelphia Orchestra, Zydeco-A-Go-Go, El Caribefunk and Trinidelphia. W W W . P E N N .
