With a full moon as backdrop, the Griffith Observatory will play host Oct. 4 to an outdoor concert by the 67-piece Symphony in the Glen, the first of what organizers say will be an annual "Cosmic Conjunction" program "to link astronomy and the arts." Organizers said it will be the first time in the observatory's 74-year history that a full symphony orchestra has performed on the lawn of the famed Griffith Park site. The program will feature compositions that "reference the sky and cosmos," said E.C. Krupp, director of the Griffith Observatory since 1974.

They play in an oddly alluring performance space--a ravine deep within Griffith Park, with two sloping hillsides and a narrow plateau divided by a rocky dry brook and partially shaded by several trees. They draw a remarkably diverse audience--all ages and ethnic groups, a cross-section of those who visit this oasis in our sadly park-poor city. They are, alas, dryly amplified.

Grandparents Day is not the marketing scheme of some greeting card company or online floral service. Instead, West Virginia housewife Marian McQuade wanted to promote the cause of the lonely elderly in nursing homes. She hoped young people would honor the "old" folks and also tap the wisdom and experience of their grandparents. McQuade should know, being a mother of 15 and grandmother of 40 herself. She started her campaign for the holiday in the late 1960s.

A concert is never a purely musical event, as Symphony in the Glen reminded us Sunday with the opening of its fifth season of free concerts. For the afternoon, the Old Zoo Picnic Area in Griffith Park became a sort of people's Hollywood Bowl, as a large and diverse audience--including active contingents of children and dogs--partied on blankets to the godfather of symphonies-as-sociological-statements, Beethoven's Ninth.

An event Sunday will benefit Valley families in two ways: It will acknowledge the importance of grandparents and provide music by Mozart. The occasion is a performance by the Symphony in the Glen, the 40-piece professional orchestra that presents free outdoor concerts of classical music in the quaint "Old Zoo" picnic area in Griffith Park, overlooking Glendale.
