Named the quartet-in-residence at Indiana University's Jacob School of Music in March 2012, the Pacifica was the quartet-in-residence at the Metropolitan Museum of Art (2009 – 2012) – a position previously held by the Guarneri String Quartet – and received the 2009 Grammy Award for Best Chamber Music Performance.
The Allegheny County Labor Council which organizes Pittsburgh's annual Labor Day parade did not extend an invitation to Governor Tom Corbett to participate in the event. Two other locals did invite the governor. Labor Council President Jack Shea disinvited Corbett saying you can't work against organized labor all year then expect to march with them on Labor Day. The council did invite Corbett's challenger Tom Wolf to march in the parade.
Do you agree with Allegheny County Executive Rich Fitzgerald's proposal to substitute county police patrols with park rangers?
