Rosette Gonzales When Angela Balogh Calin designs costumes for a play, it's not just about having a keen fashion sense. It's an artistic process that involves literature, music and collaborative research. And she goes through the same process when she designs stage sets. Calin, a Burbank resident, has worked on dozens of plays, sometimes designing sets and costumes in the same production at A Noise Within in Glendale and South Coast Repertory Theater in Costa Mesa.

From the Hollywood Bowl, the Greek Theater and the John Anson Ford Amphitheater to Burbank's own Starlight Bowl, Burbankers have no shortage when it comes to selecting a nearby venue for an evening of star-canopied music. While not as high profile as the aforementioned, the Burroughs Bowl, located between Clark and Verdugo avenues, nestled in the quad of the John Burroughs High School campus, has, for the past five years, served as yet another outdoor entertainment option. "We are so excited to again perform our very own mini-Hollywood Bowl concert filled with high-quality memorable music in a wonderful outdoor setting," said Tana Barnett , director of bands at Burroughs.

It's been a long, hot day. You've been cleaning out that back-room closet and trying not to use the air conditioner to ease up on global warming. You're looking for something cool and casual. How about this? Pack up a picnic and head over to the shady lawn in front of the Doctors' House Museum in Brand Park in Glendale. Starting at around 7 p.m., the remarkable Hoover High Jazz Band starts jumpin' and wailin'. Then, at 7:30 p.m., an entirely refreshing production of "You Can't Take it With You" begins.

Wrapping up a summer weekend with a picnic and an evening of entertainment at the Starlight Bowl has become a tradition for many Burbankers and visitors from throughout the area. While the other two concert amphitheaters in the area - the Greek Theatre and the Hollywood Bowl - are perhaps better-known venues, there is no way they can compete with the Starlight when it comes to value. With tickets offered in the $6 to $22 range, it's hard to beat the Starlight for an evening of family fun and entertainment.

With Mother Nature dimming the house lights, we settled in for our evening's entertainment juggling the plates and glasses of our laptop picnic. Typically, we don't do the Fourth of July in any grander style than a few burgers and a passing remembrance of U.S. history. This was different - Josh Groban was playing the Hollywood Bowl and my wife and I had neither seen him perform nor visited the Bowl. Well, experienced is more like it. This was a typically beautiful summer twilight punctured with a couple stars (above and on stage)

Starlight Bowl events worth the money I recently read the Aug. 20 “Alhambra event bests Starlight Bowl fare” Mailbag item, and since my wife and I have been prominently featured in the audience photographs in this issue as well as the front page of the July 23 issue, I would like to present another point of view. My wife and I have been season ticket holders in the front row of the Starlight Bowl for four years now, and I can truly say it’s worth the money.

HILLSIDE DISTRICT ? For those who plan to attend the annual Fourth of July Star Spangled Salute with Fireworks at the Starlight Bowl on Tuesday, a sparkling, refurbished facility awaits in the Verdugo Mountains. A renovation project that began early in the summer has outfitted the Bowl with new amenities, a fresh coat of paint and expanded seating areas for disabled patrons. At the entrance to the Bowl, a renovated plaza-patio area offers patrons a place to rest in the shade and enjoy food and drink from the concession stands after trudging up to the amphitheater.

If you want to know how bad the helicopter noise gets in Burbank, ask a horse. Residents in the Rancho neighborhood around the L.A. Equestrian Center are accustomed to the thwap-thwapping of the choppers that zip along the Ventura (134) Freeway on their way to wherever. In the eight months I lived near Pickwick Gardens, the window-rattling gong of the helicopter shook me to sleep and shook me awake. My former neighbors and I should all get over ourselves, some may say. One person did say as much in a letter to this newspaper last June.

48 HOURS From the romantic "You've Made Me So Very Happy," to the funky "Spinning Wheel," no band has been able to duplicate the sound of Blood Sweat and Tears led by legendary vocalist David Clayton-Thomas. Those of us who grew up in the '60s will relive the good old days when the band plays Sunday at the Starlight Bowl in Burbank. The younger generations will marvel at its versatility. Over the three decades, the band has dared to cross over the boundaries, combining rock, blues and the classics.

"Spirit of Armenia!," a night of dance and music focusing on Armenian culture, will take place on Sunday as part of the KCRW World Festival series at the Hollywood Bowl. The concert will feature 15 performing acts presenting everything from more traditional Armenian music to modern Armenian pop tunes and performances by Armenian vocalists and dance ensembles, said Stepan Partamian, who is producing the event in collaboration with the Los Angeles Philharmonic Assn. This concert is the first of its kind in both ambition and scope, Partamian said.
