In the ongoing saga of Nights at the Hollywood Bowl, Thursday's venture, before 8,005 officially tabulated listeners, was probably not among the most significant chapters. Call it modestly enjoyable. Continuing the story from Tuesday, we find Jeffrey Tate still injured, this time replaced by Jahja Ling, resident conductor of the Cleveland Orchestra and former fellow of the Los Angeles Philharmonic Institute. (Ling, you may remember, stepped in last Bowl season, when Carlo Rizzi failed to show.

Now in mid-career, Jahja Ling served a long and apparently fruitful apprenticeship as a young conductor, beginning in 1982 at the Los Angeles Philharmonic Institute. His return to the Hollywood Bowl Tuesday night, a year after his belated Dorothy Chandler Pavilion debut, proved felicitous. Only the varying acoustical distortions of a sound system not yet normalized in this summer season kept the level of pleasure on a lower plane.

When period instrument guru Roger Norrington bowed out because of illness, the Los Angeles Philharmonic's mini-survey of German Romanticism at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion began to look decidedly conventional. But his replacement, Jahja Ling, had ideas of his own about the agenda and took it over intact, with generally bracing results Thursday.

The San Diego Symphony isn't commenting, but word is that the orchestra has named Jahja Ling, a 51-year-old Indonesian-born conductor, as its next music director. "We don't have anything to announce at this time," symphony spokesman Stephen Kougias said Tuesday, declining to speculate when an announcement might come. Would he deny the rumors? "No comment." Kougias was responding to a story in the San Diego Union-Tribune that in careful terms reported Ling's imminent hire.

Gerhart, who came to San Diego from the Alabama Symphony in Birmingham, completed a three-year contract last month that reportedly paid him $200,000 annually.

For a quintessential Hollywood Bowl weeknight program, consider Thursday's agenda of familiar big-tune works. Evergreen staples from Rossini and Dvorak got decent, considered performances from conductor Jahja Ling and the Los Angeles Philharmonic, and the Mendelssohn Violin Concerto received something much more from soloist Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg. A volatile and demonstrative artist, Salerno-Sonnenberg makes music that craves attention and will do just about anything to get it.

The San Diego Symphony confirmed recent rumors Friday when it announced that Indonesian-born conductor Jahja Ling, 51, will become the orchestra's new music director beginning in September 2004. Ling, who was born in Jakarta of Chinese descent, served as guest conductor with the orchestra in January. His appointment culminates a two-year international search to find a replacement for Jung-Ho Pak, who resigned the post in March 2001.

Over the weekend the San Diego Symphony presented a pair of concerts designed to lure the locals out of the shopping malls long enough to savor a decidedly less mercantile facet of holiday spirit. In terms of audience size, Friday night's program, Handel's "Messiah" with the San Diego Master Chorale, proved to be the star attraction. Under the lithe and lively baton of guest conductor Michael Palmer, both orchestra and chorus acquitted themselves admirably.
