The Japan America Symphony Orchestra of Los Angeles is definitely an ensemble on its way up in the local musical firmament, as its concert under music director Heiichiro Ohyama at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion Friday night once again demonstrated.

Jimmy's parking garage in Beverly Hills, with masses of white lights overhead, was a wonderland for John Wayne Cancer Institute's holiday-spirited dinner dance honoring its benefactors. And there were lots of wonders to behold--including zillions, it seemed, of Waynes, all dedicated to finding a cure in memory of actor John Wayne, who died of cancer in 1979.

When he made his Hollywood Bowl choral debut in the '70s, singer Stephen Gothold was pretty impressed with the sound of 120 voices participating in Beethoven's Ninth Symphony. It was, however, no big deal compared with his Japanese choral debut in February singing the same piece at Tokyo's National Sports Arena. There, his was one of 5,200 voices for Beethoven's Ninth.
