"He dances [when he conducts]," said Joan Davidson, president of Joan Davidson Communications.

"Magnificent," complemented Candy Carson, wife of Johns Hopkins pediatric neurosurgeon Ben Carson.

Among 400 fellow BSO boosters lauding, and applauding, the new maestro: John Gidwitz, BSO president; Calman J. "Buddy" Zamoiski, BSO board chair; Terry Rubenstein, Andy Stern and Bill Couper, board members; Edie Brown, Baltimore Arena PR; Nancy Hinds, Baltimore Area Convention and Visitors Association director of communications; Peter Culman, Center Stage managing director; Bill Fine, WBAL-TV general manager; Andy Barth, WMAR-TV reporter; Richard Sher, WJZ-TV reporter; and Yuri Ushakov, ambassador from the Russian Federation to the United States.
