The sorry spectacle of former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice being run out of Rutgers' graduation program is being echoed at Rowan and Haverford, where planned commencement speeches by Gov. Christie and former Berkeley Chancellor Robert Birgeneau, respectively, have provoked protests. Haverford's dissidents went so far as to present a list of demands, making an ostensibly joyous occasion sound like a hostage situation. Efforts to muzzle speakers are at odds with American and academic ideals of free expression, association, and inquiry.

They are waiting for acceptance. Or for rejection. Somewhere in an unfamiliar room in a distant town, a committee of strangers is passing judgment on these high-school seniors. It is a ceremony of spring rather like the Cherry Blossom festival, or more accurately, the Boston Marathon. Next week, the last batch of college admission letters will be in the mail and so will the answers. Yes or no. In or out. Acceptable. Unacceptable. The seniors have gone through this jittery process the way their parents' generation went through it. It is a gantlet they run together and separately.

How many ways can savagery be celebrated? The Rite of Spring debuted 100 years ago on May 29 - a day when music changed the world with its portrayal of human sacrifice in pagan Russia, heard in endless configurations, and in equal parts fascinating, exasperating, and exhilarating. So ubiquitous has the Stravinsky piece been since its stormy 1913 Paris premiere that it's hard to imagine how the centenary might be different from any other year. Yet it is. In only a handful of classical works do so many instruments proceed in seemingly unrelated motion and play by no known rules.

Bassist Stanley Clarke has teamed up with an old mate from his Return to Forever days, guitarist Al Di Meola, along with a new collaborator, violinist Jean-Luc Ponty. The trio are called Rite of Strings. "Al and I started talking about it three years ago," Clarke said. "We were talking about various instrument configurations that would work acoustically without drums. We talked about adding a piano for a while, but then ruled that out. Then Jean-Luc's name came up, and that sounded good to me. He's probably the premiere violinist in jazz, and I'd been wanting to work with him for a long time.

Please, please, don't make Deniece Rivera wear one of those poufy white dresses. Not one of those, you know, million-tiered, lacy fluffy numbers all covered with bows and ribbons. Puhleeze, no, she begs her mother. "I don't want to wear a big dress!" Deniece Rivera's parents, Rebecca and Julio Rivera, are willing to make that concession (and a few others) because they're trying to combine two cultures: Their Puerto Rican ancestry and their daily North American lives - into a celebration to mark their daughter's journey from young girl to woman.

Just as nobody saw Igor Stravinsky's Rite of Spring coming at its explosive 1913 Paris premiere, few could have foreseen the tsunami of Rite recordings that would hit the market in its centennial year. Roughly 60 have been issued or reissued since December. Still to come is another, marking the Philadelphia Orchestra's return to the recording market after years of only a shadowy download presence. The disc is the orchestra's first with music director Yannick Nézet-Séguin, and, thanks to the prestigious Deutsche Grammophon label, it was recorded under studio conditions at Verizon Hall - a home-hall luxury afforded few American orchestras.

All Dumiza wanted was to become a man. Now, he sat glumly on his hospital bed, too ashamed even to give his full name. "I feel awful," said the 22-year-old student, a member of the prominent Xhosa tribe. "I wanted to have children. Now I won't. " Dumiza was among a dozen despondent young men in the urology ward of Cecelia Makiwane Hospital last month, each mutilated or infected during the annual Xhosa circumcision ceremony. Ritual circumcision, traditionally performed by a tribal elder with a double-edged spear, has long been an important part of a Xhosa boy's rite of passage to manhood.

The owner of the ShopRite supermarket in Cherry Hill's Garden State Pavilion center will appeal the Township Council's vote Monday to allow gas stations in certain business zones, saying the ordinance illegally favors a proposed Costco store, his lawyer said. "We're making many legal objections to this ordinance," Stuart Platt said Tuesday, "but the primary defect is that this is illegal spot zoning" intended solely to favor Costco, a chain of members-only discount stores. Platt represents Steven Ravitz, president of Racetrack Supermarkets L.L.C., which operates the affected ShopRite near the proposed Costco.

GALLOWAY TOWNSHIP, N.J. - The 28th ShopRite LPGA Classic probably deserved better. We're not talking about Sunday's weather forecast, which prompted tournament officials to move up the final-round tee times to early morning in order to finish before the nasty stuff was projected to arrive. That meant no live coverage on the Golf Channel. Only tape-delayed instead, from Stockton Seaview Hotel and Golf Club. Not the same. But when Mother Nature happens . . . Sometimes it's simply your turn to take a hit. The field was another matter.

GALLOWAY, N.J. - Anna Nordqvist started playing golf at home in Sweden when she was 12 years old, while Annika Sorenstam - another Swede - was well on her way toward dominating the LPGA Tour, where she finished with 72 wins, including 10 major titles. The achievements of Sorenstam, who retired in 2008, were remembered Sunday at the ShopRite LPGA Classic when Nordqvist tied her record for lowest 54-hole score and posted a 1-stroke victory in the tournament at Stockton Seaview Hotel and Golf Club.

GALLOWAY, N.J. - Karine Icher kept making birdies in bunches Saturday at the ShopRite LPGA Classic, but she chose not to keep track of them, preferring rather to count them up as soon as her final putt hit the bottom of the cup. Once she did count them up, the score came out to a 9-under-par 62, tying the tournament course record and moving the 37-year-old citizen of France into a 1-stroke lead after two rounds of the $1.5 million event over the Bay...

GALLOWAY, N.J. – Brynn Walker is absolutely thrilled to have qualified for the ShopRite LPGA Classic, her first career event on the women's tour. But she knows that she needs to find a way to temper that excitement and stay focused when she tees off on Friday. Walker, who celebrated her 18th birthday on Wednesday and graduates from Radnor High School next Wednesday, has been seeking to find that balance since she shot a 2-under-par 69 to grab one of two available spots in the field for the event at Stockton Seaview Resort's Bay Course.

GALLOWAY TOWNSHIP, N.J. - You see golfers getting hugged all the time as they celebrate moments on this green or that. This one was different. This was an international event, the Solheim Cup, where it's usually just teammates hugging teammates. This was a husband hugging his wife, and doing it in rural Germany, instead of, say, Jason Day embracing Ellie at Sawgrass. This wife, Gerina Piller, had just made a crucial putt for the United States that staved off defeat and paved the way for an epic comeback; this wife, who had come from golf's deepest shadows to bring her country glory.

It's OK to show up at a Philadelphia Orchestra concert this season and feel conflicted that big plans never materialized. The Stravinsky Soldier's Tale in a staged version by James Alexander, announced for the current run of concerts, was a victim of this season's budget cuts, and so the program was reworked without actors and dancers. The orchestra's current leadership feels that visuals are a good way to lure more listeners to the sound. Maybe. And though the orchestra has staged The Soldier's Tale before - in an elegant 2006 family-concert production by director Susan Fenichell - it was tantalizing to consider what Alexander (who has staged the St. Matthew Passion here)
