Russian repertoire was so prevalent and played so passionately during Yuri Temirkanov's tenure at the helm of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra that it seemed to some people that there was no point in touching such music again. I confess I entertained that notion myself for a little while. The tendency to romanticize the Temrikanov years is absolutely understandable, but not all that productive. The world goes on. So does the music. And it sure went on stirringly Friday night at Meyerhoff Hall.

A 25-year-old woman was convicted of attempted murder and assault this week in a case with links to a high-profile heroin overdose death in 1999 of a Howard County man. A Howard jury took about 3 1/2 hours late Tuesday to find Paige M. Kendrix of Columbia guilty of attempted second-degree murder, first-degree assault, second-degree assault and attempted robbery in the attack Aug. 5, 2000, on Robert Salerno, 22. But jurors acquitted Kendrix - a recovering...

Just for the record, however belated, my musical adventures last Sunday started out at the Garrett-Jacobs Mansion to hear the latest Baltimore Concert Opera presentation. It was enough to restore my faith in the spunky company. Too many past performances contained what sounded more like sight-reading than thorough immersion in the score and identification with the characters. Not so this time. For Verdi's "Macbeth," the company assembled a cast that was impressively prepared and, for the most part, vocally equipped for the challenge.

A popular priest has been removed as pastor of St. Leo Roman Catholic Church, the cornerstone of Baltimore's Little Italy neighborhood, because of an allegation that he sexually abused a teenage boy at a parish in Brooklyn, N.Y., more than 30 years ago. The Rev. Michael Salerno, who parishioners said has revived St. Leo's during his 10 years as pastor, neither admitted nor denied that the abuse had taken place, according to a statement read by the Rev....

Several dozen members of St. Leo's Catholic parish gathered in front of the Little Italy church last night, hoping to find out answers about the fate of the Rev. Michael Salerno, the priest ousted last fall after an allegation of sexual abuse, but were barred from entering a meeting of the parish council. They gathered because an e-mail circulated among the parishioners saying the Rev. Peter Sticco, head of the Pallottine Fathers, the order that runs the church, would be at the meeting called to discuss the parish's finances.

A crane lifted a 350-pound bronze statue of the patron saint of Little Italy's historic Roman Catholic church yesterday afternoon -- and with it the spirits of the old neighborhood. Tommy D'Alesandro III, the silver-haired former mayor of Baltimore who a decade ago sadly noted the aging of his parish and the low attendance at Sunday Mass, stood on Exeter Street as the crane hoisted St. Leo the Great to a long-empty niche in the face of the church that bears his name. "My spirit's way up," D'Alesandro said.

A national pilot program that sought to expose Johns Hopkins School of Medicine students to the joys of working with senior citizens has produced encouraging initial results, researchers from the National Institute on Aging announced yesterday. The Vital Visionaries Collaboration program - a series of sessions at the American Visionary Art Museum - sought to give the medical students a well-rounded perspective on the elderly. Of the 15 first-year medical students who were paired with 15 local seniors, 75 percent said they wanted to see older patients in their future practices, compared with only 13 percent in a nonparticipating control group of medical students.

The streets of Little Italy were filled yesterday afternoon with worshippers who sang and prayed while marching behind a pony and cart carrying a wooden statue of Jesus Christ in a grand Good Friday procession. For many of the 400 people who followed the Rev. Michael Salerno, pastor of St. Leo Roman Catholic Church, it was spiritually uplifting. "Good Friday and Easter are a good time for reflection," said Darryl Matarozza, 52, whose father and stepmother, Tony and Virginia Matarozza, attend St. Leo's.

As Christians around the world celebrate the resurrection of Jesus today, the congregation gathered at St. Leo Roman Catholic Church in Little Italy has reason to give thanks for another revival as well -- that of their own church. Five years ago, St. Leo's was an aging Italian parish with a diminishing congregation that was reeling from the untimely death of its pastor. About 200 people would show up each weekend for Mass, and with about 25 funerals a year, the future of the parish was in jeopardy.

By 8:30 a.m. yesterday, the first sign had already gone up. "God bless father Michael Salerno We love and support you!" Mary Ann Campanella, a third-generation Little Italy resident, had taped the homemade sign in a window of her rowhouse, above her late mother's statue of the Virgin Mary. The inquiries soon followed. A few hours later, Campanella, 66, and Giovanna Blattermann, 60, had distributed hundreds of signs to parishioners of St. Leo the Great Roman Catholic Church, aghast at the news that the Rev. Michael Salerno was removed as pastor because of an allegation that he sexually abused a teenage boy in Brooklyn, N.Y., more than 30 years ago. To the congregants of Little Italy and beyond, the removal of the popular pastor - whose arrival 10 years ago is credited with revitalizing a church and neighborhood - bodes disaster.

Wanted: healthy Baltimoreans 65 and over who can paint pictures of their lives. The American Visionary Art Museum has space waiting on the walls for art created by seemingly ordinary older people. As part of an experimental program on art and aging, a dozen or so senior citizen recruits will have their work hung near one of Anna Mary Robertson "Grandma" Moses' landscape masterpieces, The Old Covered Bridge, which she painted when she was 83. The museum on Key Highway was selected by the National Institutes of Health as the site for a program on art and aging, which pairs senior city residents with medical students.
