The contract negotiations between the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra and its musicians have ended on the right note - with a two-year agreement that upholds the artistic quality and integrity of the orchestra while allowing management to live within its means and rebuild its fundraising network. The musicians made concessions - they will get no raise in the first year of the contract and have given up two weeks of pay as well. But in exchange, management retained a full-season schedule - a critical measure of the orchestra's national standing - and it agreed to restore positions and salary increases that musicians sacrificed in the past.

Camden Yards was still quiet about three hours before the 12:07 p.m. first pitch of Game 2 in the American League Division Series. Groundskeepers raked the dirt along the base paths and a few players stretched in the outfield. The sky lived up to the partly cloudy forecast, with patches of blue occasionally marred by passing gray. The Orioles will attempt to take a 2-0 lead over the Detroit Tigers behind left-hander Wei-Yin Chen on Friday afternoon. But Detroit manager Brad Ausmus said he actually liked the fact his team was facing a quick turnaround from its 12-3 loss in the Thursday evening opener.

Those lucky enough to get the coveted on-stage seating will feel as if they are there in Salem.The students are down to the final week before the performance. While the technical crew and the actors put the final polish on their performances, it's a good time to note that without the efforts of the large and varied crews, this and other plays would not be as compelling or successful.

Think back, way back, to a time when you wanted to communicate with someone you would like to get to know better. You look up his or her address in a thick book of thin, white pages (delivered once a year to your doorstep by the sole phone company). Having found the address, you pick up a piece of paper - stay with me now - and a pen. You write a greeting to the person who has caught your attention. You place said greeting in an envelope you seal and affix a stamp to, before placing in a mailbox down the street.

Editor's note: This op-ed has been updated to reflect the correct spelling of Billie Holiday's name. The Sun regrets the error.  I traveled back to my hometown of Baltimore last weekend to reprise my role as that important historical figure, The Devil, in a rock opera about the Battle of Baltimore. This was the long-anticipated bicentennial performance of "1814!: The War of 1812 Rock Opera," a project some old friends of mine, Dave Israel and David Dudley, conceived in the bars of Fort Avenue back in 1992, before we had anything worse to do. They'd always envisioned mounting a spectacular, all-star production of the thing on the 200th anniversary of the bombardment of Fort McHenry, in the unimaginable science-fiction year of 2014.

Johns Hopkins' football team is off to a 2-0 start for the fourth consecutive year, but this fall's beginning felt differently than in previous seasons. After an overpowering 42-3 victory over Randolph-Macon on Sept. 6, the Blue Jays merely outlasted Susquehanna, 27-20, in Saturday's Centennial Conference opener. Johns Hopkins needed an interception by senior safety Ryan Rice and a fumble caused by Rice that was recovered by junior cornerback Curtis Antrum to overcome four turnovers (two interceptions and two fumbles)

Every performance by jazz singer Rene Marie is an act of validation. Sixteen years ago, she faced an ultimatum from her then-husband - abandon music or get out. She chose the latter course, and went on to enjoy an international career. Her musical journey continues as Marie brings her Eartha Kitt tribute to Creative Alliance this weekend. Given her self-confidence and dynamic personality, Marie is a natural to delve into the legacy of the sexy, indelible Kitt. Although Marie can purr seductively through a song, she doesn't try to imitate Kitt.
