The American musical community moved quickly to honor Leonard Bernstein, who died Sunday at age 72. Concerts and other events in memory of the nation's pre-eminent composer-conductor are planned locally as well as across the country. Bernstein was long identified with the New York Philharmonic, with which he first came to national attention in 1943 and which he served as music director from 1958 to 1969.

You don't have to wait any longer; the Orange County Performing Arts Center is ready for viewing. Or more accurately, previewing. The $65.5-million theater building, which is designed to bring us Music Center-ish programs without the drive to L.A., is not scheduled to open until October of next year. But now, nearly two years after breaking ground, the building is past its sprouting stage.

Occasionally in the arts, someone who works behind the scenes--a producer, an impresario--has the impact of a major performer. Bob Thiele was one of those people. Thiele, who died of kidney failure in New York on Jan. 30 at the age of 73, was a prodigy as a producer, starting his first label, Signature, at age 19, and recording such greats as Lester Young and Coleman Hawkins. He later made hit pop records with Buddy Holly ("Peggy Sue") and Jackie Wilson.

Brian Lowry asserts in his Dec. 19 column ("One Man's TV Reject Is Another's Top Film") that praise for "Mulholland Dr." "reflects the ultimate example of intellectual hubris--the assumption if you don't understand it, it must be brilliant." Far worse is the assumption that if you don't understand it, it cannot be brilliant. Lowry may rationalize his limitations by projecting them onto others, but my appreciation of films is no more impeded by their incomprehensibility to him than by their incomprehensibility to dogs.
