"That's the hard part right now," says Darin Atwater, composer and pianist. "I find myself in a place where I'm composing a lot differently."Atwater, 27, who is featured as composer and piano soloist on the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra's annual "Live, Gifted and Black" free concert wrote the piano concerto he'll be playing as a throwback to the romantic era.It's based on the spirituals "I Want Jesus to Walk Wid Me" and "Steal Away," and the piano part sounds as though Rachmaninoff were improvising over these familiar songs.

Grace Marie Darin, who coined the name and fostered the identity of Baltimore's Charles Village neighborhood while working about 35 years as a copy editor for The Evening Sun, died of heart failure Sunday at Keswick Multi-Care Center. She was 88 and had lived in the neighborhood for many years. Miss Darin named the neighborhood near the Johns Hopkins University's Homewood campus in 1967 - an area historically known as Peabody Heights - and promoted it through a chatty mimeographed newsletter, The Charles Villager, that she published at her own expense from her two-story rowhouse on East 26th Street.

SOME BETTER day than this, Gary Pontell might have found himself shooting pool in the club basement of his house in Columbia with the three sons who helped him finish the room and decorate it -- Steve, Darin and Michael. Some better day than this, he might have seen his boys in the full dress of manhood, all grown up, leading independent lives and happy to be home. But here it is, a football Sunday in America, a perfect hour for the gathering of men, and the clubroom is dark and empty.

Nine Queens neatly meets the twin demands of any con-man caper. It keeps us amused as a scam unfolds and leaves us satisfied when its secrets are revealed. The chief players here are Ricardo Darin as a practiced street hustler and Gaston Pauls as the son of another con man. Because he needs a ton of dough fast to help out his dad, Pauls joins up with Darin and swiftly becomes part of a scheme that could net the pair $450,000: selling some rare old German postage stamps known as the "Nine Queens" to a shady financial wizard and philatelist who is about to be deported.

A decade ago, something called the Soulful Symphony appeared in Baltimore. With its roster of predominantly African-American players and its emphasis on the vibrant music of founding director Darin Atwater, the ensemble made quite a statement. Its high-energy performances soon earned a sizable fan base and, in 2004, a valuable partner in the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra. Soulful Symphony hasn't performed for more than a year, but will be back in the spotlight Saturday for a 10th anniversary concert.

Kate Bosworth had trouble seeing herself as early-'60s starlet Sandra Dee in the new Bobby Darin biopic, Beyond the Sea, despite sharing a blond-haired, blue-eyed gamine quality. "I watched two of her movies, A Summer Place and Come September, and then I freaked out, worrying about doing her voice and her style," says Bosworth, 21. So she called Kevin Spacey -- who directed the film and stars as Darin, who was married to Dee -- and he assured her that, "It's not an imitation. The performance had to come from my heart."

WASHINGTON - Bobby Darin's name doesn't exactly jump to mind when talk turns to the greats of American music. Kevin Spacey is committed to changing that. "The big motivation for doing this movie has been to turn the spotlight back on Bobby," says Spacey, whose cinematic take on Darin's life, Beyond the Sea, opens in theaters today. "Other than Elvis Presley and Ray Charles, Bobby Darin had more hits in more genres than almost any other recording artist. He also played the drums, he played the vibes, he played the guitar, he played the harmonica, he played the piano.

Beyond the Sea's raison d'etre is Kevin Spacey's imitation of '50s-'60s rock-pop sensation Bobby Darin (Spacey also directed), but the best reason to see it is Kate Bosworth as Sandra Dee. Bosworth embodies wholesome all-American blondehood and knows how to play it with savvy. So when Spacey's creepy, calculating and over-age teen idol comes on to her, the audience feels like applauding her goggle-eyed disbelief. Of course, Dee was 16 and Darin 24 when they met - but Spacey is 45 and Bosworth will be 22 on Jan. 2. (Darin was 37 when he died in 1973.
