Concert plays to full house

The benefit concert to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Episcopal Relief and Development (formerly the Presiding Bishop's Fund for World Relief) played to a near-capacity house on Monday evening, despite the last minute cancellation by headliner Judy Collins. Presiding Bishop Frank Griswold reminded the audience that, thanks to the generosity of many, the fund has tripled in size in the last three years. Opening at the keyboard of a grand piano, the Rt. Rev. Robert Tharp, fund chairman, pictured at right, startled and amused the audience with the opening measures of a Chopin prelude before segueing to "There's No Business Like Show Business." Young singers from the Apsen Music Festival & Opera Theater and Chanticleer rounded out the concert program.

Many times we later find better-quality photographs than those from the Convention Daily, and we replace the original photographs with them if we believe that they are equivalent for the purposes of the story.
