ARTS SCENE

MAJOR FILMS FROM ASIA, THE PACIFIC, AND THE UNITED STATES will be shown at the Hawaii International Film Festival, Nov. 29-Dec. 5. Oahu is the site of the seventh annual festival, whose theme this year is ``When Strangers Meet.'' TICKETS ARE ALREADY ON SALE for the ``Ramses the Great'' exhibit opening April 30 at the Boston Museum of Science. The exhibit features more than 70 treasures lent by the Egyptian Museum in Cairo. A highlight of the exhibit is a 25-foot-tall statue of Egyptian pharaoh Ramses II. For more information, call (617) 723-2500. THE PHILADELPHIA MUSEUM OF ART is showing the Henry P. McIlhenny Collection, bequeathed to the museum last year. Mr. McIlhenny, a former chairman of the board of trustees, left 413 art objects, of which some 300 are on display through Jan. 17. The collection includes 19th-century paintings and drawings, as well as important groups of European and American decorative arts. FANS OF THE LATE WOODY HERMAN gathered in Milwaukee last weekend for a memorial benefit, at which a dozen jazz bands played during a seven-hour show. The benefit raised about $10,000 to help defray expenses incurred during the bandleader's last illness. Mr. Herman was a native of Milwaukee. PUBLIC TELEVISION STATIONS are licensed now in all 50 US states. Montana was the last to be signed up. The station involved is KUSM-TV, operated by Montana State University. THE KRACOW PHILHARMONIC has chosen American conductor Gilbert Levine as its new music director and principal conductor. Mr. Levine had conducted a concert in Kracow in February at the invitation of Polish composer Krzysztof Penderecki, whom he had met at Yale University and with whom he had shared a concert in Minnesota.
