From a holiday ice show to a celebrity softball game to orchestral arrangements on the dia- mond, the Baltimore Orioles have presented Arts in the Ballpark events this season as a complement to Spring Training. The finale came Saturday night, May 10, when conductor Andrew Lane led the Sarasota Orchestra through a program titled Spirit of America. Appropriately enough, Casey at the Bat was among the selections, which included music from Pocahontas, West Side Story and the Star Wars movies. Special guest Molly Cherryholmes, a Grammy- nominated performer who has her own eponymous group, joined the orchestra for the program. Staff Photographer Norman Schimmel was present to capture highlights of the evening. % An audience of about 3,000 listens as the Sarasota Orchestra begins its Spirit of America performance Saturday night.
