On Jan. 22 at 10:30 p.m., her shift over, Elda Vasquez Adorno left the Red Robin restaurant in Ellicott City, hailed a taxi and, according to police, "just absolutely disappeared off the face of the earth." Howard County Detective Thomas Lau quickly found a suspect, the woman's estranged boyfriend who lived in a rowhouse on Benninghaus Road in Northeast Baltimore. The detective questioned him, searched his home and, on many evenings, sat in a plain-looking car on a dead-end service drive across the street, keeping the suspect's house just off York Road under surveillance.

Kit Lau's life story reads like the classic immigrant success tale: grew up poor, married young in an arranged union, came to America at age 18, worked hard to put her kids through school - in her case, a very good school, Columbia University. Impressive, though far from unique. Except Lau decided to add another chapter. At age 47, after nearly 30 years of working in local Chinese carryouts and restaurants, Lau has gone back to school. Encouraged by her elder daughter, Lau is a few credits from earning an associate's degree in Internet and multimedia technology at the Essex campus of the Community College of Baltimore County.

Maybe it's something in the water. Whatever the cause, Baltimore has long been a hothouse for choral singing. Sometimes, it seems as if there's a chorus on every corner, celebrating the wealth of repertoire for blended voices. And, for the most part, our local ensembles boast remarkably high technical quality. When it comes to pure expressive power, it's hard to beat some performances by, say, the Baltimore Choral Arts Society or the chorus of the Concert Artists of Baltimore. The passion that people can feel for communal singing was confirmed with a vengeance after the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra disbanded its volunteer chorus in 2002.
