But if, like me, you feel there are few things more perfectly fashioned than a waltz by Johann Strauss and few things more satisfying than a stylish performance of same, then you'll find this weekend's Strauss-filled program by the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra's a very satisfying experience. Thanks to the popularity of the Vienna Philharmonic's globally broadcast New Year's Day Concert, lots of orchestras have tried cashing in on the idea of packaging music of the Waltz King and his peers at this time of year.

The soup options at Panera Bread can be tricky - some are low in fat but can pack more than half a day's worth of sodium or more in the 12-ounce size.

"The trumpet theme from the score stuck in my head for the entire summer," said Grams, the Maryland-born conductor who, now in his early 30s, will lead the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra this week in music from that film and others scored by John Williams. "Hearing the music today takes me back," he said, "and I hope it will do that for other people, help them remember who they were when they first saw the movie and heard the music.
