THERE'S A real good chance Dan Burke will never forget his first win as head coach over Herb Magee. Burke, the Wilmington coach, played at conference rival Chestnut Hill for 4 years and was an assistant at CHC for 4 more before getting his current gig last summer. "I grew up in this area and know all about Herb Magee and what a legend he is," Burke said. "But to be honest, his 1,000th win was not our focus. We have a playoff race that we're concentrating on. " Wilmington strengthened its playoff position with a thrilling, 72-70 upset over host Philadelphia U. in front of a packed house at the Gallagher Center.

WILMINGTON - At any given time between October and May, it's a safe bet that any number of major international orchestras are coming through Philadelphia, only to see the city through an Amtrak widow. Of course, we don't see them at all. More important, we don't hear them - not since the Kimmel Center decided a few years ago that its visiting orchestra series was a luxury the city could not afford. In April, for instance, both the San Francisco Symphony and Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra play New York and D.C., and they will miss hitting one particularly great orchestra town in between.

WILMINGTON - Seldom does such a strong, complete vocal personality leap across the decades - full of steely confidence, haunting mystery, and emotional gravity - especially one attached to a name that's completely unknown. Mascia Predit was a Latvian soprano who retired to Wilmington before dying in 2001 in her 90s. Now, she unexpectedly reappears on disc, thanks to Philadelphia-area sound archivist Ward Marston - and thanks to a decade of work by friends whose devotion to her is very nearly unconditional.
