Could one pitfall of expansion at the Orange County Performing Arts Center be scenes of pre-curtain zigzags as eventgoers scurry to find the right venue? Come September 2006, the new Renee and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall is scheduled to open, complementing the existing auditorium, Segerstrom Hall, which is right across the street. Both are named in honor of shopping mall magnate Henry T.

When is a violin not just a violin? Or a horn not simply a horn? The instruments used in period-music ensembles are museum-quality objects brought to life - a bit of European history invigorated by musicians of today. Though most period ensembles are small, the Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique is an atypical example of a large-scale group that has embraced the pre-modern aesthetic. The orchestra will perform Beethoven concerts Monday and Tuesday at the Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall as part of a tour that included a recent stop at Carnegie Hall in New York.

Pelli and his firm for designing the new Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall in Costa Mesa -- and the lawsuit the center filed last week blaming Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects, general contractor Fluor Corp.

LIKE its musical neighbor to the north, Walt Disney Concert Hall, the soon-to-open Renee and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall at the Orange County Performing Arts Center will house a Patina Group restaurant for pre- and post-performance dining. The restaurant opening expands the rampant Patina- ization of Southern California cultural institutions.

After 18 years of planning, seven years of stop-and-go fundraising and three years of construction, the $200-million Renee and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall opened Friday night with pink champagne and the booming tenor of Placido Domingo. At least for one night, as hall boosters munched roasted prawn hors d'oeuvres and mingled in tuxedos and evening gowns, it seemed possible to forget the $50-million fundraising shortfall still besetting the project.

Six months after it opened to great fanfare, operators of the Renee and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall are still working out some kinks that led to a mixed reception from music organizations and audiences.
