There are years when you feel that everything is going your way. This is one of them for Shana Blake Hill, opera singer on the rise--and she knows it. In 2000, she has sung the lead in the premieres of two operas--albeit small ones. At the end of April, she was Sally Hemings in a concert version of a work called "Monticello," mounted by L.A. Theatre Works, and last month, she was Ticie See in "On Gold Mountain," mounted by Los Angeles Opera in a semiprofessional, off-site production.

Dvorak's Stabat Mater is an unjustly neglected masterpiece that may be coming into its own. A new Naxos CD by the Washington Chorus and Orchestra led by Robert Shafer joins the slim ranks of previous recordings by Czech music specialists such as Vaclav Talich and Rafael Kubelik. John Alexander, music director of the Pacific Chorale, made the work the major part of a chorale concert Sunday at the Orange County Performing Arts Center and, as on the Naxos disc, paired it with Dvorak's Psalm 149.

The Los Angeles area is rich in community orchestras of ambition and achievement. The Beach Cities Symphony, for example, opened its 50th season Friday before a nearly full house at Marsee Auditorium of El Camino College, with one of music's highest affirmations of forward-looking hope, Beethoven's Ninth Symphony.

In his program note for Sunday's "Living Legends of Latin Music" concert at the Ford Amphitheatre, Opera Nova's artistic director and conductor, Sean Bradley, offered an interesting notion. He casually suggested a correlation between the '20s group of avant-garde Parisian composers known as Les Six and five contemporary composers who might be called "Los Cinco."

Miguel Harth-Bedoya's latest program with the Los Angeles Philharmonic is an elegant pops entertainment noting the centenary of the late Spanish composer Joaquin Rodrigo but centered on Mendelssohn's E-minor Violin Concerto. At the first of four performances, Thursday in the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, a festive reception greeted the orchestra's popular associate conductor and his clever agenda.

Ambassador Auditorium reopened in December 2004 to a chorus of huzzahs and hopes that maybe, just maybe, the new owner -- the Harvest Moon Church -- would be able to restore the Pasadena hall's glory days. At the time, the only announced tenant was the California Philharmonic. A year and a half later, the Cal Philharmonic remains the hall's only tenant, aside from the church.

Outrageous. Skewered. Funny--very funny. Los Angeles Opera followed its lavish "Aida" last week with a timelessly updated, often hilarious, sunny new production of Rossini's "Cinderella." This "Cenerentola" is in Italian, of course, but its locale has no national boundaries. The brightly colored production--unveiled for the first time Friday night in the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion--is as universal as a Road Runner cartoon and as breathlessly paced.
