What started out as a quick musical march up and down Xenia Avenue (top) ended up as a two-hour performance Saturday evening, July 30, to benefit Glen Helen. The 33rd annual concert, titled “Musicians for Justice and Peace,” featured Friends Music Camp campers and instructors in various solo and ensemble performances, including the world premiere of a choral piece, “Songs of Hope and Joy,” written by Michael Mikulka, a camp instructor.

The concert was held at Antioch College’s Foundry Theater. Over 200 people attended, and over $2,100 was raised for Glen Helen.
