Simply referring to Maria Trent, M.D., as a pediatrician is a bit like calling Barack Obama an executive. The Johns Hopkins Children's Center doctor's continuing achievements as a researcher, clinician, professor and advocate for adolescent health education brought her to the attention of Ebony magazine's editorial board, which named her in its December issue as one of the nation's 100 most influential African-Americans for 2013. She and her fellow honorees - including Kerry Washington, Magic Johnson, Harry Belafonte, Marian Wright Edelman and the aforementioned executive - were celebrated this month at New York's Lincoln Center.

If jazz is America's classical music, why aren't there more groups like the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra?Clearly, if one accepts the idea that jazz has more than its share of great composers, then the need for a jazz repertory company seems obvious. How can the work of a genius like Duke Ellington be treasured if his compositions and arrangements are no longer being played?But as the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra made plain during its performance at the Meyerhoff Symphony Hall Tuesday, hearing another jazz band play Ellington is not the same thing as hearing the Ellington Band itself.

NEW YORK -The Peabody Symphony Orchestra strutted its stuff on upper Broadway Wednesday evening. The conservatory students seemed highly energized for their concert at Lincoln Center's Alice Tully Hall, perhaps reveling in the opportunity to perform practically in the shadow of the famed Juilliard School of Music. Although turnout for this self-presented concert was disappointingly small, the audience certainly got an earful of what Peabody is made of these days. The ensemble, led with considerable intensity by music director Hajime Teri Murai, rose above even the impressive level heard in Baltimore lately.

When word got around that the Candlelight Concert Society would be presenting a performance by the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center featuring violinist Hilary Hahn, the recital in Columbia suddenly became one of the hottest tickets in town. Not only was the Howard Community College's Smith Theatre filled to capacity, but there were many more who wanted in and simply couldn't obtain tickets. It wasn't just that the Baltimore-born virtuoso was riding high in the wake of her recent Grammy nomination.

The veteran journo was eating soup and sipping on what appeared to be a pink grapefruit cocktail, according to Phelps.   Ramona Singer was spotted Friday making her rounds at various shows. We first saw the "Real Housewives of New York" star at designer Walter Baker's show at "The Box" in Lincoln Center. Singer was dressed in a lovely form-fitting Moroccan blue dress, which is one of the top colors of the season.

Late Monday night, I was standing in M&T Bank Stadium with my family, celebrating the Ravens' win over the Cincinnati Bengals. Less than 24 hours later, I found myself sitting in Lincoln Center for the second half of New York City Fashion Week. It's been quite the long, but fun, day! Operating on approximately four hours of sleep, I boarded the early train out of Baltimore's Penn Station and headed to New York with my coffee and itinerary in hand.  The train ride to New York City is easy, and I was joined by others headed for the Big Apple; laptops were brought out and early conference calls were taken.

WalterBaker (Friday in Lincoln Center) Walter Baker decided to showcase his collection in "The Box," which is where models actually do live mannequin-like modeling. This is a cool concept because you are able to get a close view of each garment. It also exposes any imperfections and weaknesses in the collection. Baker didn't have any. His pieces from this W118 collection were diverse. The colors were eye-popping. And the silhouettes were stunning. The models, wearing and earphones, stood alongside a stage in a V formation.

Diana Ross gave it her fabled all last week at Manhattan's Jazz at Lincoln Center in a one-woman concert sponsored by Qatar Airlines, celebrating their inaugural flights to New York City. Colin Cowie covered the room in burgundy flowers, which matched Diana's gown. A glam coincidence? Perhaps. Ross changed midset into a lime-green number with more sequins and chiffon. She was in fine voice, earthy and electric with the joy of performing. The best sight? An audience of sophisticated New Yorkers throwing the aforementioned blooms at Ross' feet as she took her final bows.

Beverly Sills retired from singing 27 years ago, but the afterglow of her vocal art never really faded. All you had to do was just think of the soprano, and you could still hear the distinctive sound of her gleaming voice, still feel the embrace of her personality. Not many opera stars leave so indelible an impression. Sills, who died Monday at 78, was one of those rare forces of nature who sweep through the music world periodically, brightening up the place, pushing aside pretentiousness and affectation, reaching out to the initiated and uninitiated alike.
