For most of the last two decades, James Domine has conducted and served as musical director of the San Fernando Valley Symphony Orchestra. Unknown to most of the ensemble's patrons, Domine has also led a secret life as a rock 'n' roller. Along with other musicians from the orchestra, Domine, 45, performs in a rock band called the Screaming Clams. Some might ask: Where did this man, who knows the difference between a triad and a major seventh chord, go wrong?

"Official Fears Cultural Impact From Secession," Sept. 13. San Fernando Valley secession would have little if any impact on the "downtown cultural establishment." I am not surprised that Rodney Punt and other L.A. Cultural Affairs Department officials disagree. Jeff Brain of Valley VOTE was much closer to the mark regarding the Valley not diverting resources from the downtown cultural establishment. Likewise, he is absolutely on target regarding the Valley not getting a fair share of Cultural Affairs funds.

The Ronald Reagan Presidential Library is planning a Fourth of July celebration, which, in addition to a good ol' pie-eating contest, will include a performance by the San Fernando Valley Symphony Orchestra. Beginning at 10 a.m. and continuing until 4 p.m., the library will host hundreds of visitors, who will wolf down fare such as hot dogs and hamburgers, play games, tour the library and watch performers such as Nancy Lee Briscoe play the dulcimer and Fred Knoff pluck tunes on his banjo.
