PHOTOS: Come Together 2018 Benefit for No Place for Hate
A banner Saturday in South Bethlehem came full circle with positive vibes and a message of unity, sent out by six performers who determined our community is No Place for Hate.
Come Together 2018, a benefit at Godfrey Daniels for Anti-Defamation League initiative No Place for Hate, was organized by Michael Duck, who performs under the name Not For Coltrane. Duck played alongside a collective of singer-songwriters that included Dina Hall, Pentley Holmes, Alyssa Allen, Dave Fry, and John Huie for two hours of improvised interpretations of the collective’s original material and popular covers.
The group’s performances appeared and sounded polished, speaking to the crafty veteran musicianship in the room, while the material played was kept generally upbeat in the spirit of the evening’s positive message.
The event was also attended by Dr. Jack Silva, Bethlehem Area School District Assistant Superintendent, who shared the district’s implementation of No Place for Hate to reduce bullying and build a stronger school community.
