The news last week that Edward Polochick had decided to resign as director of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra Chorus took most of Baltimore's music community -- including myself -- by surprise.The departure of Polochick, who has been associated with the BSO since the early 1980s and who will remain music director of the Concert Artists of Baltimore, represents a big loss to music in Baltimore.I wish I had a dollar for every time I woke up in the morning and realized that I had forgotten in my review to mention Polochick's contribution to the excellence of the previous evening's performance of Mahler's Symphony No. 2, Prokofiev's "Alexander Nevsky" or Beethoven's Ninth.

Most music festivals aim to wow potential attendees with top-bill talent, but Scapescape, now in its third year, is not most festivals. "It sounds weird to say, but we want quantity over quality. We're looking for consistency throughout the day," said co-organizer Jimmy MacMillan. In other words, the folks behind Scapescape hope to expose listeners to as many different acts - 115 in all, and only 10 that aren't locally based - as possible between this coming Friday and Sunday at various Station North locations, including the Crown, the Windup Space, the Metro Gallery and lots on North Charles Street and West North Avenue.
