Some conservative music circles would have you believe credible concert programs can't be built around Scandinavian or English music. Not true, but even if it were, Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia's Scandinavian Perspectives program represented chances worth taking. Certainly, the precise, forceful guest conductor Dirk Bross? took no easy ways out Monday at the Kimmel Center, with seldom-heard works by well-known composers Carl Nielsen and Jean Sibelius and familiar ones by obscure ones (Dag Wir?n)

Greg Norman shot a 65 yesterday to take a 1-stroke lead over Scott Hoch after the second round of the Buick Open. Norman's 7-under round left him at 132. Hoch, the first-round leader, followed his tournament record-tying 63 with a 70 at Warwick Hills Golf and Country Club. Payne Stewart, the U.S. Open champion, shot 74-79 and missed the cut, which was 141, 3 under par. Other notables missing the cut included Davis Love 3d, Wayne Levi, Mark Calcavecchia, Tom Kite and Raymond Floyd.

A British Airways jumbo jet and a Scandinavian Airlines System jet nearly collided over this Atlantic island, and an Icelandic air-control official said yesterday that human error was at fault. Peter Einarsson, head of Icelandic Air Control, said that "a series of human mistakes" led to the planes' passing within about 200 feet of each other Monday. Almost 600 people were aboard the two planes. SAS spokeswoman Monika Backlund said in Stockholm that the British Airways Boeing 747 and the Scandinavian DC-8 were flying in the same air corridor at the same altitude - 33,000 feet - over southwestern Iceland.

At noon Saturday, Woodbury christened the Christmas season with a parade that wound down Broad Street from the police station to Dunkin Donuts and back again, to Santa's headquarters at Scandinavian Design. The chief attraction was Santa Claus, who greeted children from atop an aerial platform truck provided by the Woodbury Fire Company. Another feature of the parade, sponsored each year by the Woodbury Merchant's Guild, was the Woodbury High School homecoming float. It had a sleigh pulled by a cow - the Heritage cow, the mascot of Heritage Dairy Stores.

At the corner of Seventh and Market Streets in Perkasie sits a modest two- story brick building with American and Swedish flags flapping in the autumn breeze. The exterior is peaceful, but inside, the corporate headquarters for Scandinavian Naturals sings with the rhythm of rapid typing, ringing telephones, beeping faxes and the furor of a relentless printer - all creating the tune of a multimillion-dollar natural medicines and cosmetics business. The frenzied pace signifies good business, but CEO and owner Hokan Cederberg prefers the slightly more calming atmosphere on the second floor.

GAME OF THRONES. 9 p.m. Sunday, HBO. SOME TV SHOWS take longer to reveal themselves than others. For HBO's "Game of Thrones," the moment didn't come until close to the end of its first season, when Ned Stark (Sean Bean), the character who for nine episodes had appeared to be the show's star and its one true hero, had his head struck from his shoulders as his two young daughters looked on. No surprise, of course, to those who'd read the George R.R. Martin books on which the epic fantasy series is based, but a rude enough shock to the rest that some claimed they wouldn't be back.

Aging waterfront factories and small industrial towns now rise from the land that Swedish and Finnish pioneers first carved from wilderness 350 years ago in what is now Salem County. Like the early settlements, however, the presence of those pilgrims in the Delaware River Valley has been obscured by the layers of humanity that followed. "There's a very large population in South Jersey that has some Swedish blood, but very little attention has been paid to the 17th century origin of the area," said Daniel Erickson 3d, who was originally from South Jersey and now lives in Burke, Va. He recently traced his bloodline to the early Swedish settlers.

Kenny Knox, playing with no back pain for the first time in two months, shot a 6-under-par 64 yesterday to tie Ed Humenik for the lead in the first round of the Greater Hartford Open. Ted Schulz and Sonny Skinner were 1 stroke back, just ahead of a pack of eight golfers at 4 under. Knox's main concern entering the tournament was his health. He had missed two tournaments with a bulging disk that made walking up stairs difficult. But the swing Knox had been seeking to recapture since 1986 - his best year on the PGA tour - suddenly came back yesterday.

The tree-lined uphill drive leads to 500 acres where children once played and campfires once flickered. Most of the old cabins are gone now, and the swimming pool has been filled in, but the YMCA residence camp off Route 322 just south of Downingtown remains in the minds of many Downingtown residents. The campground, sold six years ago, is now being developed. "I spent a lot of happy days up there as a kid," said Donald Greenleaf, Downingtown's borough manager, who remembers trekking up the big hill to summer camp.

After an early-morning workout, Quintus McDonald was ready to go grab a bite to eat and head home for a little rest and relaxation. But unlike his former teammates on the Indianapolis Colts, who travel to and from Scandinavian's Gym on the outskirts of Indianapolis in BMWs, Lexuses and Mercedes, McDonald was riding around on a $500 Trek 6600 mountain bike. That's because McDonald, who grew up 17 miles west of Manhattan, in the suburban township of Montclair, N.J., has nothing to show for a three-year career in the NFL except trips to drug rehabilitation centers.
