When gospel composer Carol Antrom wondered how her songs were being received several years ago, she resorted to a little marketing. She handed out a pack of three-by-five index cards during her much-anticipated annual concert of songs here. Many cards came back ringing with testimonials. One man wrote that he had come to the concert filled with thoughts of suicide. But the music had magically dispelled them. It had given him hope, if only for a time. Antrom's songs - many are rich ballads taken from her personal experiences - have been banishing negativities for years.

What inspires a Broadway and Hollywood great to return to concert performing after an eight-year absence? "It was now or never," said Julie Andrews of the concert tour bringing her to Valley Forge Music Fair tonight through Sunday. "I reckoned that in another five or 10 years, I might regret not having done it. If I could say, 'I had the chance and I didn't take it,' I'd feel a bit of a fool. " Andrews is one of the most versatile and charming women ever to grace the stage, screen and telly.

Now that Maestro Riccardo Muti is the music director of La Scala, will he strive to replace Milan's beautiful opera house with a modern facility? Mr. Muti has, on several occasions, expressed disdain for his Philadelphia audience and has made it very clear that Italy is his home. Why are we allowing him to convince us that we must replace the venerable Academy of Music for a contemporary music hall? I believe that the concert patrons of Philadelphia, if asked, would prefer to enjoy their orchestra in the academy's beautiful surroundings.

Savvy marketers at Lincoln Center came up with Serious Fun as the title for a summer series of new music and performance art. That seems an appropriate caption for two of the weekend's more interesting offerings. The first, and hands down the more serious session of music, should be violinist Maria Bachman's recital tonight at the Ethical Society. Bachman, accompanied by pianist Jon Klibonoff, will give the premieres of three violin sonatas - by Paul Moravec, Sebastian Currier and George Rochberg.

NEW YORK - Billy Joel jokes about living out his own personal "The Godfather: Part III. " "Just when I thought I was out," he said, chuckling, "they pull me back in. " After all, Joel has been trying to lie low for a while, looking to stay out of the spotlight. Performing as part of "12-12-12: The Concert for Sandy Relief," which is shaping up to be the biggest music event in history with a potential worldwide audience of 2 billion people, wasn't exactly part of his plans.

A couple of consultants, working with some big corporations, came up with the idea: A big rock and rap concert to kick off the July 4 week celebration of the return of the Desert Storm troops. They got permission from the Air Force officials and McGuire Air Force Base to stage the event. They engaged a New York promoter to organize it. They had some big acts - Run D.M.C., Cheap Trick, The Marshall Tucker Band - lined up to donate their talent. And they had sold tickets at $18.50 each for the concert, which was to be opened at 2 p.m. tomorrow by comedian George Burns.

ISSUE | BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN Following The Boss on a long, wild ride Ilene Raymond Rush's commentary perfectly expressed the connection of many Springsteen fans to Bruce (" Connected to Bruce, from the very start ," Wednesday). Like Rush, I'm 61 and have been enjoying the E Street Band's music for about 40 years. I saw him perform in small venues when I had hair and was mesmerized by his music and lyrics before he made the covers of Time and Newsweek and exploded into stardom.

Summer symphony audiences are supposed to be easy. Just give them pleasant weather, a nice picnic, craft beer, the 1812 Overture with a few cannons . . . If only. Summer audiences can be more easily discouraged by weather than, say, regular season crowds at the Philadelphia Orchestra. And summer crowds, for example, don't take as well to reruns as you might think. Not even the 1812 Overture , cannons blasting, is fail-safe. So summer concert presenters are looking for new ways to attract and hold audiences.

Tangible Assets. No one should interpret the closing of the F.Y.E. at Broad and Chestnut Streets as the twilight of classical music. It's just that recorded music is moving to nonphysical formats, so who needs a physical store? There is a silver lining: a very big sale. All the CDs and records in F.Y.E.'s nicely curated classical perch are currently 40 percent to 50 percent off. On a visit last week, that meant a CD of pianist Imogen Cooper performing Brahms and Schumann for the cost of a sandwich, or a Gorecki symphony in the iced latte range.

Thousands of Democratic National Convention staffers and volunteers, a host of South Jersey politicians, and hundreds of Camden residents on Thursday took in performances by Lady Gaga and Lenny Kravitz at an event hosted by George E. Norcross III, the Democratic superdelegate often described as New Jersey's most influential power broker. The "Camden Rising" concert at the city's waterfront BB&T Pavilion was billed as an invitation-only affair, but in the days leading up to it, several community groups and Camden residents received stacks of tickets to hand out. As a result, many in the audience were Camden City or County employees, or members of well-known community groups.
