While it is mere rumor that Meyerhoff Symphony Hall is named after his great-grandfather "Symphony," choral director Tom Hall could not have been more at home there last Tuesday evening.Mr. Hall is known for his innovative programming, but this time he outdid himself. In a wonderfully audacious move, Mr. Hall pitted his home-team Baltimore Choral Arts Society against the world champion vocal ensemble Chanticleer in its premiere appearance in Baltimore. Such chutzpah is almost like the Orioles attempting a double steal against Toronto.

Maryland coach Sasho Cirovski was expecting a high-scoring game when his team met Coastal Carolina in the third round of the NCAA men's soccer tournament Sunday. The Chanticleers led the nation in goals and liked to attack opponents by aggressively pushing numerous players forward. But it was Maryland's offense that put on a one-sided clinic in a 5-1 victory before an announced 1,847 at Ludwig Field. Sunny Jane scored his first two goals of the season and had an assist for second-seeded Maryland, which hosts the winner of Louisville and Northwestern on Saturday at 5 p.m. in the quarterfinals.

Gilbert David is working on a comeback in show business. This octogenarian wants one more shot at the limelight. He feels certain some locals might recall him as "Mr. Fitness," a frequent guest on local TV shows 30 or more years ago. His neighbors in Northwest Baltimore still greet him with the stage name used when he chatted it up with Elane Stein and with Oprah Winfrey, when she co-hosted a talk show with Richard Sher on WJZ.

"Rock-A-Doodle" do? I think, unless you're under the age of 10, it's more a case of "Rock-A Doodle" don't.Don Bluth's animated retelling of the Chanticleer story in pupil-splattering colors and eardrum-shattering music casts the classic story in the idiom of rock 'n' roll. Why? Why ask why?Chanticleer, that icon of deluded male vanity, has become an Elvis imitator, with a fat greasy pompadour, a white jumpsuit open to the navel and a fragile tatter of an ego. I'd vote for him on a stamp, but do I want to spend a long time in a movie theater with him?

He said he tried to escape three times, and was beaten and held in solitary confinement for 374 days as a result. His captors accused him of being a CIA spy.

Coastal Carolina, meanwhile, took big bites out of Towson's defense, scoring on a 49-yard run and a 63-yard pass play.
