Last week, barely audible over the hum of neighborhood air conditioners, was an unmistakable sound. Boom, da boom.Under the blazing sun, the Panthers marching band of North Carroll High School was stepping off to the beat of drums. Some 60 students were blaring brassy renditions of four popular movie themes, and 15 girls were working to synchronize banners and bowler hats. There were 50 positions to step into across the field.This was band camp, a traditional two-week rite of passage for band members, a cram session before schoolwork and the dual seasons of football games and band competitions.

The sweet sounds of string instruments emanated from the cafeteria at New Town High School yesterday, while the stronger tones of brass drifted from the auditorium and two other nearby rooms. School is out for the summer, but at 9 a.m. the halls rang with the music of 200 students attending band camp, including the 65 who make up the orchestra. The orchestra members tuned their instruments as director Carrie Sexton led them with a one-letter command, "G." The bows rose and campers played scales at Sexton's instruction.

While many young musicians packed away their instruments along with their textbooks at the end of the school year, hundreds of Howard County's youth have found that summer is a perfect time to strike up the band. Summer band camp programs are increasing in popularity and offer numerous benefits to participants. Music teachers say the summer programs help students refine the skills they learn in school music programs, enhance techniques such as breath control and intonation and, most important, keep the kids practicing their instruments over the summer months.

Grizzly Man [Lions Gate] $28 DVDsCHECK Audiences may have flocked to March of the Penguins last year, but many believe that Werner Herzog's Grizzly Man is the documentary of 2005. Harrowing and memorable, Grizzly Man chronicles the life and death of naturalist and filmmaker Timothy Treadwell, who studied and filmed grizzly bears in Alaska for 13 summers only to have a bear kill him and girlfriend Amie Huguenard in 2003. Narrated by Herzog, the documentary features numerous excerpts of Treadwell's footage as well as interviews with former girlfriends, his parents and the coroner who examined the bodies.
