The Kennedy Center Concert Hall was packed Saturday night for the National Symphony Orchestra's first performance of a 1946 masterwork by Paul Hindemith, "When Lilacs Last in the Dooryard Bloom'd. " OK, the place was packed because the first half of the program was devoted to Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto with the ever-popular, ever-youthful Joshua Bell as soloist (I'm surprised he has not yet been dubbed "The People's Violinist," a la "The People's Diva"). What counts is that the great majority of the audience remained after intermission to hear the rare and worthy Hindemith score, which he called a Requiem "For those we love.

Whenever the Poly girls basketball players or coach Kendall Peace-Able talk about the heart of their program, the conversation always centers on defense. Thursday, the No. 8 Engineers relied on that stinginess in the final 25 seconds of the Class 4A state semifinal at UMBC's RAC Arena to hold on for a 33-32 victory over Walt Whitman and secure a berth in Saturday's state championship game. The Engineers had a 33-30 lead when their Aneah Young missed the front end of a one-and-one and the ball caromed out of bounds, giving Whitman 24.6 seconds to try to tie the game.

The music of Paul Hindemith gets little attention in our time. This despite the fact that the German-born composer, who spent many years in the U.S. after the rise of the Third Reich, once was widely recognized as an important and influential figure. All the more reason, then, to take note of this week's National Symphony Orchestra program, which offers an especially rare performance of "When Lilacs Last in the Dooryard Bloom'd," conducted by Christoph Eschenbach. Baritone Matthias Goerne, mezzo Michelle DeYoung and the Choral Arts Society of Washington will be featured.

This year is the 100th anniversary of Walt Whitman's death. In his honor I've been re- reading ''Leaves of Grass.''I celebrate myself,And what I assume you shall assume,For every atom belonging to me as good belongs to you.I loafe and invite my soul,I lean and loafe at my ease . . . observing a spear of summer grass.With those lines, Whitman began the first and longest of the 12 poems which he initially printed and bound himself in July, 1855. Much later he would finally name that first poem ''Song of Myself.

The Catonsville girls soccer team spent most of Saturday's Class 4A state title game valiantly defending against talented Walt Whitman's persistent attack. Eventually, it became too big a burden. For more than 70 minutes, the No. 5 Comets turned away everything the Vikings from Montgomery County sent their way, protecting their goal with stubborn determination and poise. But Walt Whitman finally broke through with two goals in the final eight minutes - both on headers by senior forward Anna Gurney - to come away with a 2-0 win over Catonsville at UMBC Stadium.

BETHESDA -- The first game of last night's match made South Carroll coach Debbie Eaton happy. The score, which went in favor of Walt Whitman, didn't please Eaton, but what she saw on the court did."The first game was real important to us because we saw this team was beatable," said Eaton. "This was the push we needed."South Carroll got lots of push also from Nicole Spencer and Melissa Gettemy, especially in the fifth game, and the visiting Cavaliers won their first region championship since 1985 with a 10-15, 16-14, 15-7, 11-15, 15-10 victory over Walt Whitman in the Class 3A West Region final.

BETHESDA -- South Carroll point guard Amber Clutter summed the game up best when she said simply: "They were better than us."Certainly host Walt Whitman (22-0) had too much of everything for South Carroll last night in a 68-50 Class 3A West Regional girls semifinal victory over the Cavaliers.It showed superb interior passing, excellent ball movement, good outside shooting, active hands on defense and a strong full-court press.It all produced two back-breaking runs by Whitman that added up to a 27-0 margin and more than did in South Carroll.

Now the Drum of War By Robert Roper Walker & Co. / 421 pages / $28 Walt Whitman (1819-1892), author of Leaves of Grass and the father of American poetry, came from a large, close-knit family. Poor and prone to strokes, heart disease and mental illness, the Whitmans were nevertheless tenacious, talented and smart. Robert Roper's book offers a family biography, which looks at Walt Whitman and his relationship with his family primarily during the Civil War. In a style reminiscent of Ken Burns, Roper focuses on Walt, his doting mother and his younger brothers, Jeff, a water engineer, and George, a Union soldier.

It came at the wrong time.The No. 3 Owls gave up two goals in the first 2:10 yesterday afternoon against Walt Whitman -- as many as they've given up all season long -- and it was all the Vikings would need in coming away with a 2-0 win in the Class 4A state semifinals at Goucher College.It's the third straight year the Owls' season has come to an end in heartbreaking fashion at the state semifinals. This season was a little more special with the Owls rolling through the regular season and region playoffs perfect.

COLLEGE PARK -- Atholton coach Rick Jones said his mixed doubles team of John Healey and Julia Southerland had a "chip on their shoulders" ever since they were seeded fourth in the Howard County championship. The two used that snub as motivation as they went on to win the county title, a regional title and then capped their undefeated season yesterday with a state championship at the University of Maryland. Healey, a freshman, and Southerland, a sophomore, were the only players from the Baltimore metropolitan area to make it to a championship game in tennis.
