Piano music has been a long-standing element of the Hagerstown farmer's markets on Saturday mornings, but a Funkstown reader recently inquired through Mail Call about the music being halted due to a complaint. “I have gone to the City Market in Hagerstown for 30 years, and have enjoyed the hymns played on the piano. No one sang; just piano music,” the reader wrote. “Last week when I asked why no one was playing the piano, I was told a lady complained about the religious music, and they stopped,” the reader wrote.

Members of Pleasant Valley Baptist Church said they want to make an impact in the community, so they organized a special day in Shafer Park on Sunday. A main part of the event was a Christian music festival, which featured bands playing in a gazebo on the park's grounds.
