Musical Whodunit: Close Encounters with Music presents a musical mystery today at 2:00 p.m. at the Biltmore Hotel (1200 Anastasia Ave., Coral Gables). Based on a painting by Titian, the concert program is part narration, part visual exploration, and part investigative exercise that unfolds like a detective story. Bassoonist Kim Walker, flutist Pamina Blum, violinist Peter Zazofsky, and pianist Michele Levin join cellist and artistic director Yehuda Hanani to perform works by Debussy, Villa-Lobos, and Brahms. Tickets cost $20. Call 843-0778. (GC)

Citizen Kane: Cinema Vortex screens what is widely considered the best American film in cinema history at noon today at the Alliance Cinema (927 Lincoln Rd., Miami Beach). Orson Welles also stars in his 1941 directorial debut, a universally acclaimed celluloid masterpiece that dazzles with every inventive frame (as Welles himself said of his career: "Istarted at the top and worked down"). As you know, it's not-so-loosely based on the tumultuous personal and professional life of newspaper mogul William Randolph Hearst ("I run a couple of newspapers. What do you do?"). Admission is four dollars. Call 531-8504. (GC)

Bobby McFerrin and the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra: Bobby McFerrin is a musical conduit, a human beat box, a vocalist of unique and extraordinary natural ability.

Flagler St.) and Friday at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts (201 SW Fifth St., Fort Lauderdale). McFerrin conducts the orchestra in Prokofiev's Symphony no. 1 and Beethoven's Symphony no. 4, then steps out from behind the podium to perform works for orchestra and voice.
