The Columbia Orchestra gets to do a lot of big pieces during the season, but it also has a free chamber music concert series that puts the focus on smaller pieces. Its next chamber concert is on Sunday, Jan. 19, at 3 p.m., at Christ Episcopal Church in Columbia. Orchestral performers really appreciate such opportunities to explore the chamber music repertory. The upcoming concert features the Columbia Orchestra Piano Trio, composed of music director Jason Love on cello, concertmaster Brenda Anna on violin and Nancy Smith on piano.

Members of the Columbia Orchestra get to explore compositions written for smaller ensembles when they perform a free chamber concert on Sunday, April 27, at 3 p.m. at Christ Episcopal Church in Columbia. Most of the pieces involve quartet and quintet configurations playing music written for woodwinds, strings, piano and brass; and there's even going to be a place on stage for a hammered dulcimer. So, it's basically a chance for musicians belonging to a large orchestra to work on a smaller scale.

The Columbia Orchestra, Howard County's premier ensemble for instrumental music, has announced details of its 2001-2002 season. In its 24th year, the orchestra will perform some of the greatest masterworks of the symphonic repertoire. Unlike last season's yearlong tribute to American composers such as Aaron Copland, Samuel Barber, Morton Gould, John Corigliano and John Adams, this season's slate of concerts heads straight for the core of the repertory and, for the most part, stays there.

Jason Love is that rarest of musical breeds -- a young conductor actually making his living from conducting before reaching his 30th birthday. "That is a little uncommon in this country," said Love, 29, a graduate of Baltimore's Peabody Conservatory who was named in the spring to lead the Columbia Orchestra. "Not that I didn't have to sell ladies' shoes at JC Penney's to help ends meet along the way." But, mixing and matching engagements, Love has become one of the area's busiest, most enterprising conductors.

Maestro Jason Love's penchant for the contemporary musical idiom means that his Columbia Orchestra, Howard County's premier ensemble for instrumental music, spends a fair amount of time outside the standard symphonic repertoire. That, however, will not be the case Saturday evening when the Columbians take the Rouse Theatre stage for a program of favorites taken straight from the heart of the classical canon. There is no better-loved overture anywhere than the instrumental prelude to Mozart's opera The Marriage of Figaro, a story of love and forgiveness triumphant amid the fledgling republicanism of late 18th-century Europe.

Intracity rivalries proved costly Sunday for ranked teams as first No. 3 Villanova fell to Temple in Philadelphia and then Xavier went double overtime to quash No. 19 Cincinnati in the Queen City. Juan Fernandez's early 3s kept Temple close, his first one of the second half gave the Owls (8-2) the lead and his big ones late in the game helped clinch their biggest regular-season victory in nearly 10 years. By the time Temple fans bellowed "Overrated!" and stormed the court, Villanova's perfect record and city dominance were finished.

The Columbia Orchestra knows how to fill the stage with musicians, but it also knows that a much smaller ensemble also can be music to the ears. That's why its season provides a mix of concerts deploying the full orchestra and other concerts that adopt a chamber music format. Where the latter format is concerned, you'll only count three musicians when the Columbia Orchestra Piano Trio performs a free concert on Saturday, May 11 at 7:30 p.m. at Christ Episcopal Church, in Columbia.

The classical music calendar is covered with notes in Howard County this weekend. That's because there are several local concerts scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, March 17 and 18.

European composers still tend to dominate most classical music programs in the United States, but the Columbia Orchestra makes a case for our country in a program titled "American Inspirations. " Some of that American music is freshly minted, too, in its concert on Saturday, Feb. 4, at 7:30 p.m., in the Jim Rouse Theatre at Wilde Lake High School. Although the concert-opening piece, N. Cameron Britt's "Inledning," bears a Swedish word meaning "Introduction" as its name, that merely reflects this contemporary American composer having spent time in Sweden.

Critics, let's face it, are cultural snobs at heart. If you had told me in advance that a concert beginning with the theme to television's The Flintstones and ending with a suite from John Williams' score to Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone would be as downright pleasant as was the Columbia Orchestra Pops Series concert I attended Saturday evening, I never would have believed you. Truth is maestro Jason Love and his orchestra concluded their 2003-2004...
