Hagerstown Choral Arts sings beautiful music To the editor: It is with great excitement that I thank Hagerstown Choral Arts (HCA) charter members and Greg Shook, the choir's co-founder, for their talents, ideas, enthusiasm and dedication to working together. I am a new member of HCA and I want to thank the longtime members of the choir who have presented wonderful concerts two and three times per year for the last 18 years.

Considering that it was Maestro Barry Tuckwell's final performance at the Antietam Battlefield, there was a bit of sadness surrounding the Maryland Symphony Orchestra's 12th annual Salute to Independence July 5. But the near-perfect weather and the stirring patriotic music played by the symphony seemed to cancel out any regret felt by the more than 30,000 who attended. We note all of this almost a week after the event because after more than a decade of concerts, those who attend may get the idea that it's a simple show to put on. It isn't.

Maryland Symphony Orchestra Music Director Elizabeth Schulze recalled Sunday how she made a local connection to French composer Gabriel Pierne, whose work represented a time in France when some of the greatest music was being created. Schulze, speaking before the “Viva la France” concert at The Maryland Theatre Sunday afternoon, talked about meeting Hagerstown resident James G. Pierne when she came here about 13 years ago. It turned out Pierne, past president and member of the MSO's board of directors, was a great-nephew of the composer.

Some couples make beautiful music together. That's certainly true of Ellis and Peggy Duffey. Several times a week, the Hagerstown husband-and-wife duo visits area senior living communities, where they lift residents' spirits with the gift of song. Ellis, 79, plays the guitar while Peggy, 74, handles a tambourine. But it's their voices that audiences most appreciate. Known as The Harmonizers, the Duffeys began performing for senior citizens after Ellis retired from Moller Organ Co. "People love music," he said.

"I just read Mail Call about the sassafras. Go to the City Farmer's Market on Saturday mornings. They used to sell it there. If they don't anymore, I am sure someone will tell you about it.

" "I am not sure what our laws are about people who are in this country who aren't citizens or migrated from another country.

The sheer power of the Internet is constantly changing the way we gather and report news on a daily basis. One example is the use of video to augment our stories and photos. In January, our newspaper posted five news videos on our Web site. By the end of June, the number had soared to 97 videos from 83 different events - an average of roughly three each day. In one day, we posted six videos. That number last month was helped no doubt by our extensive coverage of regional high school and college graduations, as well as major spectator events that included the annual Western Maryland Blues Fest and the Miss Maryland pageant.
