Music sales help aquarium patrons

Sea-inspired melodies are helping efforts to give terminally ill children, disabled veterans and other special-needs groups glimpses of aquatic life at the National Aquarium in Baltimore.

Musician Greg Pierce is donating $5 from every sale of “Sea Notes,” his CD with eight instrumental compositions, one of which is the background for the aquarium’s popular “Jellies Invasion: Oceans Out of Balance” exhibit. Photographer David Simpson, whose cover shot for the album has been reproduced on a poster, is also donating $5 from every poster sold to a program that helps the aquarium honor requests for a no-charge look at its exhibits.
