A pair of Baltimore filmmakers will likely have a guaranteed audience from Westminster when Last Ride of the Raven, their romantic comedy, makes its debut. To add a 1950s flavor to their movie, George R. Rivers III and Gene Vincentt filmed scenes last weekend during the final installment of the summer concert series at Westminster City Park -- with the audience cued to dress in period costume, right down to poodle skirts, saddle shoes and greased hair. Rivers and Vincentt wanted to revisit the days of the old hot rod movies by creating one of their own. The filmmakers chose to shoot parts of their story in Westminster because it's home to the Street Cars of Desire club, with its hot rods and classic cars -- and because Vincentt's band would be playing the final concert in the summer series.

Perhaps because David Zinman conducts it frequently, one could not help but be intrigued by the differences in the performance of Mozart's "Jupiter" Symphony that Mario Venzago led the the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra in last night in Meyerhoff Hall.The most obvious one was length. Zinman's performances take about 25 minutes; Venzago's "Jupiter," the concluding work on the conductor's fourth and final concert in Summer MusicFest, was 8-10 minutes longer. This was not merely a matter of repeats, which Zinman eschews and which Venzago generously observes.
