Young Chang Celebrated guitarist Pepe Romero can't say enough about his belated 57th birthday party, which happened earlier this month. The entire family came over to his Del Mar home and all the generations made music, even the littlest relatives. His seven-year-old grandson played the guitar for him and his two-year-old granddaughter sat on his lap pretending to strum. "And believing that she was playing," he said. "The difference between playing and not playing is believing that you can."

The Philharmonic Society of Orange County will offer a hat-trick of sorts in the 2014-15 season it announced Monday: Audiences can hear programs led by the music directors of three of California's top orchestras. Gustavo Dudamel will conduct the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Carl St.Clair will lead the Pacific Symphony's chamber music sections, and the San Francisco Symphony's music director, Michael Tilson Thomas, will also be accounted for - although on this occasion he'll marshal the London Symphony Orchestra as one of its principal guest conductors in a program featuring piano star Yuja Wang.

When I was 4, my mother started taking my brother and me to hear the Chicago Symphony Orchestra at Grant Park in Chicago, where we lived. My brother and I spent almost the entire time running around the park, playing around Buckingham Fountain and probably annoying many of the concertgoers. If I heard any music at all, I don't remember it. What I do remember was that this music was important to my mother, even though the music didn't have any words, a concept I could not understand.

Their mantra is to always strive for excellence. Acceptable is, quite simply, unacceptable.

Probably more than any other instrument in an orchestra, the tuba has the sound of authority - big, brassy, deep and imposing. For the young, struggling John Van Houten, that sound inspired the discipline he needed. The tuba instructor, who began teaching last fall at Concordia University in Irvine, took up the instrument in his early teens and soon found that his overall performance in school increased with his musical proficiency. Over the ensuing decades, Van Houten went on to play for film and television (he counts "The Simpsons" and "The Incredibles" among his credits)
