Frederick Fennell, 90, a classical music conductor and teacher acclaimed for creating an innovative wind ensemble at the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, N.Y., died Tuesday at his home in Siesta Key, Fla. While bedridden with hepatitis for six weeks in 1952, Mr. Fennell dreamed up the notion of redefining the typical wind-and-brass band by whittling down its numbers and emphasizing its musical dexterity and virtuosity. His Eastman Wind Ensemble, signed by Mercury Records in the 1950s, went on to record 22 albums.

At age 15, children are smack-dab in the middle of their teen-age years. What better moment for a parent to step back, appraise them and utter those time-honored words, "My, how you've grown." The same goes for orchestras, as we'll see this weekend when Anne Arundel County's very own Chesapeake Youth Symphony Orchestra takes center stage at Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts for a concert commemorating the 15th birthday of the ensemble that's become one of Maryland's foremost musical organizations for the young.

OompahI take great exception to Stephen Hunter's pejorative comments about military music in his review of "A Few Good Men."His reference to military music as "loud, showy, entertaining and utterly trivial" proves he has stepped outside his area of expertise and is speaking from ignorance.Perhaps what Mr. Hunter had in mind was a military marchin band. It is true that without an auditorium or a band shell to project the sound a marching band must be loud in order to be heard at all.If immaculate uniforms and marching in step are showy, then one might call marching bands showy.

"I'll get there first."Fourth-grader Charles Wilson mocked his classmate's boasting, for his homeroom is just across the hall from the finish line -- the school's sparse library.
