WTMD's First Thursdays concert last night -- the first of the season -- could be described in many ways, but "damp" comes to mind first. At 5:30 p.m., 90 minutes before the concert began at its new home (Canton Waterfront Park), rain interrupted what had been a picturesque spring day. Rain came in spurts for the next few hours until it stopped for good, roughly halfway through the show. Like many other attendees, a dozen of us found relief when necessary under one of the various tents around the park.

On a rainy night in late March, the studio of WTMD looked more like the buzzing set of a classic variety show than home to Towson University's public radio station. Members of the Baltimore indie-rock group Celebration checked the sounds of their instruments as three actors from the Single Carrot Theatre rehearsed a scene from a new production. Sam Sessa , the show's host and a former Baltimore Sun editor, practiced introductions. Elsewhere, Wham City Comedy's Ben O'Brien went over lines to a monologue he would perform that night.

Two more music organizations jumped into the 2013-14 season over the weekend, producing vibrant results in both cases. The Baltimore Chamber Orchestra, marking its 31st year, took the stage Sunday afternoon at Goucher College with a cohesive mix of personnel; the strings, especially, sounded much firmer. There was a fresh and involving quality to the playing throughout the concert, culminating with a warmhearted account of Mozart's "Linz" Symphony, elegantly shaped by music director Markand Thakar.
