i i' B THE PALM BEACH POST SATURDAY, DECEMBER 6, 1997 Top artists will help plan Mizner Park concert hall Dallas Brass kicks off season with style Concert review Shaw's Many Moods of Christmas (Suite No. , 1) proved excellent in its translation from the orchestral suite, and Percy Grainger's Sussex Mummer's Christmas Carol showed the group's beautiful legato playing. Of course, the performance included the Dallas Brass' traditional salute to early ' jazz and big band music. In this repertoire the group really outshines its competition. , The players lend the music a genuine, hard-swingin' feel, and offer fantastic im-,; provisations, as well. Tnimnetpr Chuck Lazarus was mas Florida Philharmonic Music Director James Judd and Boca Pops conductor Crafton Beck. It will advise the hall's development consultants on acoustical and artistic design. The city council votes Dec. 15 on a 99-year, $l-a-year lease for the performing arts center on 5.7 acres at the north end of Mizner Park. CHAMP hopes to raise $30 million to $37.5 million to build the center, which will feature an amphitheater for 5,000, an 1,800-seat performing arts center, and the new 40,000-square-foot home of the Boca Raton Museum of Art. Add to this carefully crafted and varied programming, and you have one of the most entertaining and versatile chamber groups in the business. While much of the program was devoted to seasonal music, the ensemble showed good facility in two dances by Renaissance composer Tylman Susato, and piccolo trumpeter Craig Morris gave a fine reading to Tchaikovsky's Neapolitan Dance. The Christmas selections were highlighted by several interesting medleys and the addition of voices from our own fine Choral Society of the Palm Beaches. Robert terful in his extended solo performance of Sugar Blues, and the entire group gave ; Benny Goodman's Sing, Sing, Sing an ap- propriately edgy sound.

The popular quintet cavorts through a program including holiday standards as well as a little jazz spice. By Bill F. Faucett Special to Tke Palm Beack Post PALM BEACH GARDENS It is hard to think of a more pleasant way to begin the holidays than last Thursday evening's Eis-sey Campus Theatre program, A Merry Christmas with the Dallas Brass. The Dallas Brass, comprising a brass quintet with a drummer, has developed a loyal local following with its virtuoso musicianship, superb musical arrangements, and often subtle humor.

By Shannon Colavecchio Palm Beack Post Staff Writer Despite last weekend's cold front and another blast of chilly air already in South Florida, the encephalitis medical alert is stil on in Palm Beach County and 26 others, officials said Friday. ; Tests this week confirmed two sentinel chickens in Lake Worth and in Canal Point have contracted St. Louis encephalitis and four more chickens in Boca Raton and in southern Belle Glade are presumed to have the virus. Palm Beach Health Department officials had hoped the cooler temperatures would speed the end of the encephalitis prob lem that prompted the state on Oct. 2 to issue a 27-county alert. Counts of encephalitis- carrying mosquitoes dropped from 2,640 .on Nov. 21 to 869 Tuesday, Palm Beach County Mosquito Control biologist Ed Bradford said. County environmental spe cialist Mike Lowdermilk said conditions have improved but the virus is still in circulation. "The chickens that tested positive this week could have been bitten as early as mid-November," he said. "It can only get better. Until then, we have to take precautions. That includes covering ex posed skin with long-sleeved clothing or with insect repellents containing DEET when going outdoors at night. And for those seeking shelter from the cold, the Palm Beach County chapter of the American Red Cross will open warming sites at 6 p.m. today at its downtown West Palm Beach headquarters, 825 Fern St., and at its Belle Glade center, 425 W. Canal St. N. The cold front is expected to limit daytime temperatures to the 60s, with lows in the 40s.
