Joyce Rudolph, Weekend BURBANK -- Nicolo Paganini's "Grand Sonata" will feature violist Karen Elaine Bakunin when the Burbank Chamber Orchestra continues its 10th season with a free concert at 7:30 tonight. Bakunin has been described as a soloist capable of bringing the viola out of obscurity. To that end, she has developed an international career and is a much sought-after soloist. She is also a prominent recording artist, having recorded with the London Symphony Orchestra and the London Sinfonia.

Churches rent theater facilities every week for worship, paying up to $1,000 for three hours. However, some critics of this believe that holding church in a movie theater sends the message that the church is not going to be there for the long run and ?not here to stay,?
