The tyke in the Tigers cap drew his foot back, kicked as hard as he could and sent the soccer ball rolling toward the net. Jordan Champion, 3, of Suitland, decked out in a T-shirt that read "A Monster Ate My Socks," didn't seem to care all that much whether his shot eluded the goalie across from him, a 47-year-old physician named Fernando Mena. Neither did Mena, who just happened to let the ball roll through his legs. When the cluster of grown-ups around Jordan burst into applause, it was for his bigger triumph: Like the dozens of other kids and 200 or so parents on hand for a celebration at the Hippodrome on Saturday, he spent his first few weeks clinging to life in the neonatal intensive care unit, or NICU, of University of Maryland Medical Center.

Beethoven is making two appearances with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra this week, one as the composer of the kinetic Symphony No. 7, the other as a specter, haunting the searing Metamorphosen by Richard Strauss. In each case, the effect is gripping. On the podium is Juanjo Mena, the Spanish conductor who endeared himself to musicians and audiences in his debut at the BSO's summer festival in 2004. He's a natural, stylish communicator who gets results. (That said, the idea of billing the current program as "Spanish Sensation" does him and the music a disservice.

With the economy careening around us, there's nothing like an evening with the gold standard of rock-solid German musical stock to settle the nerves. Beethoven concertos and Schumann symphonies, at least, never lose their value, or their ability to generate interest. There was a remarkable reminder of those qualities last night from the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra in a program that will be paying further dividends this weekend. It's always a wise investment when the BSO engages Juanjo Mena as guest conductor.

Well-aged music with rich color, a hint of tobacco and a strong finish was served up by the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra to open its newly christened Summer Wine and Music Fest Wednesday night at the Meyerhoff. Because it was also Bastille Day, the tastings in the lobby were of French vintages; inside the hall, works by French composers prevailed. As in previous BSO summer festivals, a chamber-music program preceded the orchestral one, and, in a nicely symmetrical touch, the spirit of Francois Couperin put both portions in motion.

The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra's viticultural exploration took a diverting Spanish turn Wednesday night, before heading to North and South America for tonight's finale of the Summer Wine and Music Fest. Another week, and maybe we would have reached Australia. (On second thought, probably not. While it would be easy and enticing to fill a lobby with Down Under wines for sampling, an entire program of Australian composers is unimaginable outside of Sydney or Melbourne.) For Wednesday's Iberian stop, Juanjo Mena was, needless to say, in his element.

Can two photogenic, likable, hard-working stars make a film good all by themselves? Not in the case of "Loser," a listless, disjointed collegiate opposites-attract comedy from writer-director Amy Heckerling. But at least Jason Biggs and Mena Suvari, as two New York University students meant for each other more than either suspects, make the film bearable. Paul Tannek (Biggs, "American Pie") is one of those fish-out-of-water types you find only in the movies, a kid from suburbs so sub the rest of the world that popular culture never set foot there.
