Our rare visits to community orchestras are sometimes illuminating, sometimes downbeat. A drop-in at the venerable (in terms of age; it was founded in 1946) San Fernando Valley Symphony Saturday night proved invigorating. Lois Johnson, a young conductor trained in the podium arts at the Manhattan School and at Aspen, has led the Valley orchestra since 1985. Four years later, what had been sagging community interest and diminishing audiences seem to have been revitalized--not least in the handsome and accomplished playing of the instrumental ensemble itself.

The leisurely affair, held in the newly restored Castle Green, included a formal dinner and performances by a fine youth orchestra and strolling mimes in clown costumes.

A suit by a conductor who alleged he was slandered by former members of his orchestra was dismissed Friday in Orange County Superior Court when, for the second time, the conductor and his attorney failed to appear for a hearing. Mozart Camerata Music Director Ami Porat filed the suit in June against violinists Endre Granat and Alexander Horvath and other unnamed parties, accusing them of "slander, interference with contract, interference with economic relationship and conspiracy."

But, successfully met, the challenge reaps wondrous rewards. Rewards there were when John Alexander led the Pacific Chorale, Pacific Symphony and four accomplished soloists in the massive, intricate and spirit-lifting work Sunday night in Segerstrom Hall at the Orange County Performing Arts Center.
