Daniel M. Fink, a semiretired box company executive and a founder of the Liberty Jewish Center, died Wednesday of respiratory failure at Sinai Hospital. The Pikesville resident was 82. Mr. Fink was born in Baltimore and raised in the city's Park Circle neighborhood, where his father owned and operated a general store. After graduating from City College in 1944, he enlisted in the Army and was sent to Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, where he studied engineering. He later served with the adjutant general's staff until being discharged at the end of the war. He enrolled at the University of Maryland in 1947, and because he had so many credits in civil engineering, he earned his bachelor's degree in 1949.

James Mason, the man behind the new drum and bugle corps-inspired stage sensation called "Blast!," is not modest about his ambitions for the show. "What `Riverdance' did for Celtic dancing and `Cirque de Soleil' did for the circus," he says, "we could do for instrumental music." It may be an ambition as big as this lavish production, which opened a three-week, pre-Broadway run at the Opera House of the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington last week. But for Mason, who conquered outdoor precision music and marching before tackling a stage version, it seems right in character.

Call it a musical sport. The young men and women performing in drum and bugle corps not only play instruments. They march and sometimes they run, but they are always moving and keeping beat with the music. Several hundred of these peripatetic musicians are competing this week in Westminster for the right to call themselves the best. It's an exercise that requires such precision, musically and physically, that one misstep or a wrong note can cost an entire corps a high mark. "It's very competitive, and it's very physical," said Ed Dempsey, promoter of Drum Corps International, an organization that plans drum corps competitions.
