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.

“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.

Meagher / staff photographer see enlargements by clicking on images There was joy, no sadness, when Barry Tuckwell rested his baton at his final performance Sunday evening as conductor of the Maryland Symphony Orchestra. And there was humor as the maestro turned to face the packed house at the Maryland Theatre and was besieged by friends and family members wearing T-shirts that said "Go Daddy. " Tuckwell's wife, Sue, said the "Go Daddy" hearkens back to a time when a close friend lived with the Tuckwells and began calling the maestro Daddy as a term of endearment.
