You will not be the least surprised that the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra has a hit on its hand with "Sci-Fi Spectacular," a pops program this weekend featuring the inimitable George Takei. If you don't have tickets for the remaining performances, beam them up. If, like me, you have extremely little interest in science fiction in any guise, you'll still have a cool time. After all, some of the most colorful and ear-grabbing soundtrack music of the past 60 years or so has been for sci-fi movies and TV.  BSO principal pops conductor Jack Everly put together a great sampling for this program, which gives the players lots of opportunities to shine.

John Williams has won just about everything there is to win in the music industry, including a slew of Grammys, Golden Globes, Emmys and no less than five Academy Awards - his record of 48 Oscar nominations is second only to Walt Disney. If the 81-year-old composer, whose career encompasses the campy mid-'60s vintage TV series "Lost in Space" and last year's sobering, soaring movie "Lincoln," wanted to rest on his comfy stack of laurels, no one would blame him. But Williams remains as busy as ever with film projects, commissions for concert works and conducting gigs.

The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, which has slipped back into deficit territory partly because of pension fund obligations, has planned a concert to do something about that. The program has what should be a big draw -- music by celebrated film composer John Williams. Proceeds will benefit the BSO musicians' pension fund, and since Williams is donating his services, that gives those proceeds all the more potential. Williams, who has earned five Oscars and nearly 10 times that many nominations, will lead the BSO in selections from his scores for such hits as "Star Wars" and "E.T," not to mention the sagas of "Indiana Jones" and "Harry Potter.

Lifestyles expert Hilary Phelps and Sun fashion reporter John-John Williams IV give their take from New York Fashion Week. We love her bags. And we love the celebs who carry her bags, but Rebecca Minkoff's spring collection fell way short Friday evening at Lincoln Center. Hilary: She opened with a gorgeous, flowy jumpsuit that would be perfect for late spring or early summer. And I did like the pink tweed blazer with hints of lime green. I also liked her black envelope studded bag. I felt there wasn't a lot of length to her collection.

"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.
