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.

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.

Curtis encores. The main classical season may be over, but you can revisit some high points from recent performances at the Curtis Institute of Music via videos on the school's website. Captured is a nicely developing interpretation by Bolai Cao of the Brahms Piano Sonata No. 1 in C Major , a Mahler Symphony No. 5 conducted by Jahja Ling, a Mendelssohn quartet, Gershwin and Strauss vocal works, as well as new music. When you've had enough of organized sound, click on a performance by a cellist and pianist of Cage's 4'33 . " Strangely, the performance lasts a bit more than five minutes.

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.

Woody Allen's affinity for gypsy jazz is obvious to anyone who has seen - or just listened to - his films. The director has used Django Reinhardt's music on his sound tracks at least as far back as 1980's Stardust Memories , and his 1999 movie Sweet and Lowdown stars Sean Penn as a shiftless guitarist who both worships and envies the legendary guitarist. So it says something that when Allen wanted a distinctly French jazz guitar sound for his time-traveling 2011 Midnight in Paris , he turned to Stephane Wrembel.

The concert at the Dell Music Center was a "Stop the Violence" program to promote peace in Philadelphia's neighborhoods. It ended with 20-year-old Alexis Guevara mortally wounded in the parking lot after an escalating argument with two men who were leaning on his car. On Tuesday, William Greene was held for trial on a murder charge after his alleged accomplice - testifying anonymously because of threats - told a Philadelphia judge that Greene shot...

Leon Bridges, the 26-year-old rhythm-and-blues singer with the 50-year-old soul, will bring his high-waisted vintage slacks and his playful-to-prayerful love songs to the July 4th Wawa Welcome America! party on the Ben Franklin Parkway. Bridges, who channels Ben E. King's "Stand by Me" and Sam Cooke's "You Send Me" every time he sings his neo-soul serenades, is a young master of old-school vulnerability. "The world leaves a bitter taste in my mouth, girl," he laments on "Coming Home," the title song on his breakout 2015 debut album, which skyrocketed him from obscurity to omnipresence on the concert circuit.

Somber and Kenny Chesney are typically mutually exclusive terms, particularly at the country music superstar's concerts, which are usually non-stop, feel-good events. But halfway through Chesney's show Saturday at Lincoln Financial Field, the vibe changed from celebratory to solemn when the dynamic entertainer offered a shout-out to Folcroft Police Officer Christopher Dorman, who was shot seven times Friday morning, allegedly by a career drug and weapons offender. Chesney thought that Dorman, who is expected to make a full recovery, had died.

Art may or may not be the answer to society's most nettlesome ills. But sometimes in the face of abject destruction, the only thing you can do is to draw yourself up to the beauty of creation as closely as you possibly can, and listen. Sunday afternoon's musical response to the Orlando massacre could have achieved quite a lot with any number of pieces of music, but the repertoire choices were particularly wise. About 300 packed the pews of First Presbyterian Church at 21st and Walnut Streets for the concert by conductor Andrew Senn, a chamber orchestra of mostly freelancers, and a chorus of about three dozen (all donating their time and talent)
