Ventura County's barbershop-style Channelaire Chorus is gearing up for a performance at Carnegie Hall in New York May 8. The 83-member group has been invited to perform under the direction of Peter Tiboris, music director for the Manhattan Philharmonic. Judy Ashmore, the group's musical director, said nobody seems to be particularly anxious. "We've done enough performances not to be," she said. "It's more excitement than nervousness." But one thing does worry Ashmore.

I write a column for the Los Angeles Times. Colin Johnson goes to seventh grade. Next month, one of us will be in Carnegie Hall to receive a national writing award. I'll give you one guess. You may notice I'm employing a rather clipped writing style. That may explain why Colin is the one going to New York. As he told me last week when we met at his home in Laguna Beach, he tilts toward similes and metaphors and evoking the senses with the words he puts on paper.

Robert Harth, who became head of New York City's prestigious Carnegie Hall days after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks and led America's premier classical music venue into an adventurous new era, has died. He was 47. Harth, who served as general manager of the Los Angeles Philharmonic from 1979 to 1989, second in command to former executive director Ernest Fleishmann, died Friday in his Manhattan apartment. The cause was a heart attack, Carnegie spokeswoman Ann Diebold said.

"Horse-drawn carriages lined up for a quarter of a mile, bringing members of New York's finest families to the first night of a gala five-day festival that was to inaugurate a new era in the city's musical life. . . ." That was the scene on May 5, 1891, when the Music Hall, funded by steel magnate Andrew Carnegie, opened on 57th Street at 7th Avenue in New York City. Tchaikovsky had traveled from Russia to lead a performance of his "Marche Solenelle."

But after listening to the tape, the tenor saxophonist got inspired to return to Carnegie to mark the 50th anniversary of that historic concert.
