MARYLAND HALL for the Creative Arts, the former Annapolis High School, is a perfect example of putting an outmoded building to good use.When the high school moved to a new location on Riva Road, its old home could have been left to rot. Vision, energy and persuasiveness prevailed, however, and a rich community resource was created, taking full advantage of the spaces in the building.The hall is a work in progress, physically and conceptually, and the latest adaptations, a climate-control system and state-of-the-art sound system, will be showcased May 17 when the Naval Academy Band opens a new Summer Performing Arts Series with a free concert.

THE ANNUAL challenge of finding something worthwhile for children to do during the summer is with us again, and there are some very creative solutions.The Anne Arundel County Public Library, for instance, is recruiting middle-school students to help with the Summer Reading Program for younger children. The young mentors will organize and distribute packets of materials for program participants, help register children, restock book displays, help with craft projects and assist the library staff with special events.

Devotees of arts who have enjoyed performances in the spacious but often climate-impaired Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts are invited to make a nostalgic cultural rendezvous at the third annual "All for the Hall" fund-raiser.The building, at Greenfield and Constitution streets, was home to Annapolis High School until 1978. Now it houses many artisans and provides performance space for the Ballet Theatre of Annapolis, the Annapolis Chorale, the Annapolis Symphony Orchestra, the Annapolis Opera and the Talent Machine Company.

WHAT WOULD Anne Arundel County be without Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts? In the 17 years since the old Annapolis High School on Chase Street was converted into an arts center, it has become the county's cultural hub. It is home to the Annapolis Symphony Orchestra, Ballet Theatre of Annapolis and choral and opera companies. A branch of the Peabody Preparatory conducts classes and performs there.Linnell Bowen is about to become the new executive director of Maryland Hall at a critical juncture.

Problem: The 68-year-old building that is home to Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts and many of Annapolis' finest artists has drafty windows, water damage and an aged electrical system. Solution: A big party. Arts Alive 2, the hall's annual fund-raiser Saturday, will bring together patrons, artists, food, music and a tent full of art and goods for auction. Last year's sold-out gala, which ran for three days, raised $60,000, organizers said. This year's one-day event will include dinner by Outback Steakhouse, desserts by the Main Ingredient, dance performances by Kelly Isaac, music by Stef Scaggiari, Sue Matthews and Global Function, and an artsy yard sale.

Anyone who's ever sweated through a May concert at Maryland Hall knows the old, poorly ventilated structure is no place to take in a concert during the summer.Acoustics -- don't even ask. The fraction of musical sound that makes it off the cavernous stage seems to head immediately for the nearest velour curtain to die. "Singing in Maryland Hall," conductor Ernest Green once told me, "is like singing into your sock."But the good news is that those who know and love the hall best -- its administrators and the talented performers who play, sing and dance there regularly -- are committed to its improvement.

NORTHERN ANNE ARUNDEL County residents and their elected officials have long complained -- with justification -- that they never get amenities, only headaches. They get landfills instead of swimming pools, detention centers instead of arts centers. The good stuff usually ends up in well-heeled Annapolis and Central County. But the trend may be changing.Anne Arundel County Executive John G. Gary is turning out to be the best friend Glen Burnie ever had, working to bring an ice rink downtown and speed up the perennially delayed "Superblock" project.
