Shriver Hall Concert Series


January 21, 2001|By Sloane Brown

Who says chamber music fans aren't a sporting bunch? At a post-concert dinner honoring the Emerson String Quartet, some of the Shriver Hall Concert Series' biggest supporters proudly donned Ravens AFC Championship caps.

In fact, series fan Dr. Dorothy Rosenthal said some audience members could be spotted carrying small TVs and radios with earphones at the concert, which coincided with the playoff game.

"And some women came alone," Rosenthal continued, "so you knew where their husbands were."

Even members of the famed New York City-based string quartet got into the dinner's playful spirit.

Violist Lawrence Dutton proclaimed his loyalty to Ravens' Superbowl opponent New York Giants but pleaded, "We can still be friendly tonight, can't we?"

Among the group of 30 gathered at the Polo Grill restaurant: Jephta Drachman, Shriver Hall Concert Series board chair; Harriet Panitz, Helmut Jenkner, Professor Woody Howard and Barbara Kornblatt, board members; Bill Nerenberg, Shriver Hall Concert Series executive director; Sam Feldman, concert sponsor; David Finckel, Eugene Drucker and Philip Setzer, Emerson Quartet members; Dr. Solomon Snyder, Johns Hopkins Medi- cal School head of neuroscience; Dr. Leonard Scherlis, University of Maryland medical school professor of epidemiology and preventive medicine; Henry Eisner, Eisner Communi-cations chairman; Rhea Arnot, Arnot & Associates owner; Dr. Stuart Brager, Lutherville internist; and Nancy Rogers, Martha's Vineyard Chamber Music Society executive director.
