Angelo Gatto spoke softly and carried a small baton, but the slender 92-year-old conductor had no trouble getting respect from the musicians of the Maryland Youth Symphony Orchestra rehearsing for Saturday's milestone concert. The milestone is Gatto's final concert as music director of the orchestra, which he founded 50 years ago. During that time, he mentored an estimated 3,000 students from the area, inspiring many to pursue musical careers. Alumni can be found in such major orchestras as the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra and on podiums leading ensembles of their own. To the players rehearsing at the Center for the Arts on the Catonsville campus of the Community College of Baltimore County, Gatto offered his trademark instruction: "Don't just play notes.

Downs Park staff members and volunteers hope for a pair of dry Sundays so they may present the final programs of their rain-disrupted Bayside Concert Series. Five of the 17 concerts to date, four of them Sunday evening programs, were canceled because of rain. The other was a Saturday afternoon performance by the Annapolis Symphony Orchestra. Threatening weather resulted in a smaller-than-expected turnout Sept. 3 for a children's concert by folk singer Sue Trainor. Park officials believe that thunderstorms in the Glen Burnie area probably dampened turnout even though the evening was sunny.
