Last month, Tony Bennett became the oldest recording artist to hit No. 1 on the Billboard Album charts, thanks to "Duets II," featuring his collaborations with the likes of Lady Gaga, Andrea Bocelli, Norah Jones, Michael Buble and the late Amy Winehouse. The chart-topping is just one more remarkable credit for the 85-year-old Bennett, whose six-decade career has been marked by a consistently high artistic standard. The singer also made news last month after saying some controversial things about 9/11, but those remarks were quickly recanted, and Bennett bounced right back into a concert tour that brings him to the Patricia & Arthur Modell Performing Arts Center at the Lyric on Saturday night.

Tony Bennett and Johnny Mathis will be making their Baltimore Symphony Orchestra debuts in the BSO's 1991-'92 Pops Series.This is the first time the BSO has been able to present such important pop-music figures. This comes, said BSO executive director John Gidwitz, as a result of a restructuring of the series. Instead of performing 16 different programs in 16 weeks, as it has been in the past, the BSO will perform eight different programs in eight weeks. The total number of concerts will be unchanged at 27 because each program will be performed either three or four times.

Gary Pusateri forked over $15,000 last weekend for what he thought would be the meal of a lifetime. The retired computer analyst and amateur pianist was the highest bidder at a charity auction held just before Tony Bennett took the stage at the Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall on Saturday night. His prize: A post-concert dinner with the legendary singer. Or so he thought. But when he arrived at Da Mimmo after the show, Pusateri wasn't seated at Bennett's table - or even on the same floor of the Little Italy restaurant.

NEW YORK -- The crowd of 1,000 strong who pressed into Rockefeller Plaza yesterday for Katie Couric's last morning as host of the Today show couldn't decide whether this was a wake or a party. There were tears, but there was also champagne. There were mournful tributes, but there was also laughter. Couric's fans made one last pilgrimage to NBC's concrete studio in midtown Manhattan, bearing signs, flowers and even a sheet cake. "It's kind of like a death in the family. She's such a friend to you," said David Lawrence, 48, a restaurant owner who drove through the night from Boston to bid farewell.
