Violinist-conductor Pinchas Zukerman's final season as artistic director of the Baltimore Symphony's Summer MusicFest got off to a splendid start last night in Meyerhoff Hall. After a pre-concert chamber music performance -- which I was not able to attend -- the orchestral program began with Zukerman leading Mozart's Serenade for 13 Wind Instruments in B-flat (K. 361) and concluded with Vivaldi's "Four Seasons," with Zukerman playing a double role as solo violinist and conductor.Unknown a mere 50 years ago, the "Four Seasons" are now almost impossible to escape -- whether one is in an elevator, in an automobile or in a supermarket.

Eight years ago, Barry Manilow was shocked to hear that a friend's daughter was futilely searching for a saxophone. The student wanted to try something new, but her school didn't have the instrument. Manilow, the veteran singer and composer with more than 80 million records sold worldwide, was dumbfounded. But after surveying the country's school-funding issues as a whole, Manilow soon realized his friend's daughter shared the same problem with kids across the country. The issue resonated with him. "I went to a dump of a high school in Brooklyn, [N.Y.]

Houston's 'Legacy': photographs of his timeBaltimore photographer Robert Houston's "Legacy to an Unborn Son" is a project to record life in urban America in his time, primarily through photographs of the daily lives of ordinary people. A book by that title was published in 1971, but Mr. Houston has continued the project, and a show of "Legacy to an Unborn Son" opens at the Montpelier Cultural Arts Center on Wednesday. Mr. Houston, a photographer for 25 years, has used many locations in his work; some of the photographs in the show were taken in Baltimore.

The medium of two pianos is one of the most exacting in all chamber music performance. Clarity, immediacy and precision -- all important hallmarks of chamber music -- are extremely difficult to achieve on two pianos, partly because of the distance separating the two performers but also because of the unforgiving mechanical design of the piano itself.Nevertheless, duo-pianists Danny Kelley and Kelvin McClendon, in performance yesterday at Douglass High School, proved themselves well equipped to handle the special problems of their chosen medium.

Phil Collins' ears must have been burning when this year's Grammy nominations were announced yesterday, because his name certainly kept coming up. Collins is up for eight Grammys this year, including Record of the Year, Album of the Year, Song of the Year and Producer of the Year. As if that weren't enough, his ". . . But Seriously" album was also nominated for Best Engineered Recording (Non-Classical).That put him well ahead of M. C. Hammer, Mariah Carey, Wilson Phillips and Leonard Bernstein, each of whom landed five nominations, and Sinead O'Connor, with four.

Brian Sacawa and Erik Spangler see themselves as sound guerrillas. The co-founders of the Contemporary Museum's off-kilter Mobtown Modern concert series don't just perform experimental music - sometimes they like to sneak up on people with it. That's the case with Mobtown Modern's latest project, a rendition of Mauricio Kagel's Eine Brise (A Breeze), subtitled "Fleeting Action for 111 Cyclists." No, that number's not a typo. The piece features a troupe of 111 bicyclists, who whistle, ring bells and make whooshing noises with their breath while riding to re-create the sound of a breeze.

If we are to take our cues from GQ magazine, men are no longer rushing for gold — no diamonds, no elaborate chains or any other flashy jewelry. May cover model Jake Gyllenhaal's sole hint of bling is an understated $15 silver tie bar. Looking inside the issue's 162 pages, we find exactly four editorial subjects wearing jewelry beyond wedding rings or watches: a thin chain link bracelet on Lou Dobbs, a David Yurman dog tag and wooden beads on San Francisco Giants pitcher Tim Lincecum, studs on L.A. Dodgers center fielder Matt Kemp and a class ring on Drums guitarist Jacob Graham.

Performing chamber music with intimate friends and relatives is an experience usually reserved for amateurs, but not so this weekend at Christ Episcopal Church. Howard County's own Wonju Kim, violinist with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, will be joined by her family and friends at 3 p.m. Sunday in a concert that features Schubert's "Trout" Quintet and Mendelssohn's Piano Sextet in D. "It's a family affair," says Ronald Mutchnik, co-founder of Sundays at Three, the concert series sponsoring Wonju Kim and her sisters Won Hee Kim, cellist, and Wonmi Kim, pianist.
