By the time she was about 9 years old, Karen Smith Manar had decided she wanted a career as a musician. She started playing bassoon in middle school. It became obvious, she said, that it was the instrument that spoke to her musically, the instrument that was "in her soul. " "That sound, that range of notes, that mellowness, the role the bassoon plays in the orchestra - that was where I should be," she said. "That was the instrument I could speak best through. " The Trenton, N.J., girl came to Maryland to earn her bachelor and master's degrees in performance at Peabody Conservatory of Music at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore.

“Sacred Structures,” the fourth Masterworks concert of the Maryland Symphony Orchestra's 30th anniversary season, explores the connections between early Christian music and the music of the concert hall, Music Director Elizabeth Schulze wrote in an email. Each of the four composers used ancient Christian chant music as a jumping off point in their works on this weekend's program, she wrote. Nikolay Rimsky-Korsakov depicts a sacred ceremony in Russian Easter Festival Overture. Michael Daugherty, inspired by the grand architecture of the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris and the Empire State Building in New York, wrote “Raise the Roof.” “Prayer of St. Gregory” is Alan Hovhaness' prayer without words, and Ottorino Respighi's “Church Windows” portrays images in stained-glass windows.

Every so often I feel compelled to hang out on the fringes of decency, so as not to fall in to a world filled exclusively with sweat pants, onion dip and reruns of the Great Alaskan Shootout at 3 a.m. on ESPN 2. Since Antietam Cable is the enemy of airing good football games, this weekend seemed a good time to hear the symphony - which, unlike the Redskins vs. Eagles, Ravens vs. Chargers, can boast some real action. That's because there are four contestants duking it out for the job of maestro, the position vacated by Barry Tuckwell last year.

Editor's note: Each Sunday, The Herald-Mail publishes "A Life Remembered. " This continuing series takes a look back - through the eyes of family, friends, co-workers and others - at a member of the community who died recently. Today's "A Life Remembered" is about Walter A. Lawson, who died June 13 at the age of 84. His obituary appeared in the June 20 editions of The Morning Herald and The Daily Mail. In the revered Prokofiev composition "Peter and the Wolf," the French horn provides the musical theme for the wolf, symbolically mimicking the deep and sinister nature of the beast.

If the Maryland Symphony Orchestra board was provincial and rawboned in its treatment of founding conductor Barry Tuckwell, it was equally smart and seamless in the selection process that brought us Elizabeth Schulze, who becomes only the second maestro in the symphony's 17-year history. Keep in mind I'm writing from the perspective of a fellow who thinks an impresario is a new line of computers from Compaq, but I believe Schulze to be an excellent choice. Any of the four finalists chosen by the MSO board would have been fine, no question.
