Recession being the bane of piano retailers, it seems wholly remarkable that Harry Cohen and his son, Lou, decided to start selling Baldwins and Wurlitzers in 1937 - the year the economy relapsed toward the end of the Great Depression. But somehow the Cohens survived the recession of 1937 and 1938. In fact, the family business, founded in Philadelphia, thrived through three generations and extended into three states. Hundreds of families in Pennsylvania, Delaware and Maryland bought new and used pianos from one of the Cohens over the years.

Rabbi Daniel Plotkin was in the marching band at the University of Wisconsin and one of his highlights came when the football team took part in the Rose Bowl parade in 1994 - the school's first appearance in the game in 31 years. When Plotkin became the rabbi at Beth Shalom in Columbia less than three years ago, he soon learned of several other congregants with dormant musical backgrounds but no outlet to keep sharp or exhibit their skills. With the assistance of Steve Cohen, who joined the congregation in 2005, Plotkin created Divine Intervention, an eclectic mix of musicians who held An Evening at the Coffee House on Jan. 25 as a fundraiser for Beth Shalom.

Michael Ernest is correct when he says in his letter ("Democrats are to blame for the government shutdown," Oct. 15), that "It is a fact that House members have the right to make such spending decisions. " Similarly, the president of the United States and the U.S. Senate have a right to veto or vote against such spending decisions. They also have a right to veto or vote against every single spending bill brought by the House unless the House votes in specified ways. Just like the House has a right to prevent any bill to come up for a vote that does not contain a repeal of Obamacare.

Schools in Montgomery County benefited this week from a piano loan program organized and run by an Anne Arundel County-based music business. Jason's Music Center in Pasadena began its Public School Piano Loan Program in Anne Arundel about five years ago. The program lends new pianos of various sizes and types to public school music departments for one year. The pianos are swapped for newer pianos at the end of the year, and the used instruments are sold by Jason's at discount prices. Albert Einstein High School was the first of 12 Montgomery County schools to receive a new piano - a grand piano delivered Tuesday.

If the mission of the Chesapeake Center for the Creative Arts is to encourage artistic expression, the center's opening gala certainly set a good example. Some 250 guests were treated to tours of the old Brooklyn Park High School -- newly converted to hold classes in arts like dance, theater, painting and ceramics. The building's main gallery offered a feast for the eyes, displaying not only the work of some of the country's top artisans but also a bounteous hors d'oeuvres buffet. It all helped whet the appetite for music and dance performances in the building's main theater.
