A Concert for Joseph McLellan
A memorial concert will be presented tonight at the Kennedy Center Terrace Theater in honor of the late Joseph McLellan , who wrote for The Washington Post from 1972 to 2005 and served as the paper's chief classical music critic from 1981 to 1995.
The free concert, which will begin at 7, will feature the baritone Gordon Hawkins (who recently starred in "Porgy and Bess" with Washington National Opera), the Audubon String Quartet , pianist-composer Jessica Krash, guitarist Berta Rojas and members of the Washington National Opera and Domingo-Cafritz Young Artists Program.
The Kennedy Center has donated the use of the theater and all costs in memory of McLellan, who died Dec. 26. Today would have been his 77th birthday.
Hasselhoff Must Keep Away
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Mark A. Juhas has issued a temporary restraining order requiring David Hasselhoff to stay at least 100 yards away from his estranged wife, Pamela Bach , according to court documents unsealed this week.
The order, which allows the former "Baywatch" star contact with his wife only for "peaceful contacts related to court ordered visitation" for one of their two teenage daughters.
Bach, 42, has custody of one daughter and Hasselhoff, 53, has custody of the other.
Juhas scheduled a hearing for April 4 to decide whether to extend the order to three years.
In her request for the order, Bach claimed instances of domestic violence last December and in February. In one incident, police officers were summoned to the scene but did not, at the time, give Bach an emergency protective order, according to court papers.
Hasselhoff's publicist said the actor "categorically denies" Bach's allegations but declined to elaborate.
"Out of consideration for his children, which, as always, remains his paramount concern, he is not going to discuss this publicly," publicist Judy Katz said.
Hasselhoff filed for divorce Jan. 12, citing irreconcilable differences after 16 years of marriage. Bach filed her own divorce papers a day later, also citing irreconcilable differences.
Hasselhoff played lifeguard Mitch Buchannon on "Baywatch" from 1989 to 2000. He also starred in the 1980s TV series "Knight Rider."
