Copland's "Old American Songs" and Orff's "Carmina Burana" may seem an odd couple, but Robin Buck will sing them both on Saturday with the Pacific Symphony. Actually, the pairing of folksy intimacy with over-the-top theatricality captures the twin spirits of the baritone's career. "I was motivated by theater, as far as performing goes," he said over lunch in Pasadena. "That's the direction I thought I wanted to go in life.

Bach's "St. Matthew Passion" ends with a chorus of weeping at the sepulcher of Christ. There were no tears--but perhaps there ought to have been--when the William Hall Chorale closed its 33rd and final season with the work Sunday at the Pasadena Presbyterian Church. The Hall Chorale will now be dissolved and merged with the Costa Mesa-based Master Chorale of Orange County, which Hall also directs. Run-out concerts are promised--"We'll be back," said founding music director Hall at the close.
