Noah Bendix-Balgley with David Allen Wehr
We are excited to present the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra’s new concertmaster, Noah Bendix-Balgley, in a violin recital. Mr. Bendix-Balgley won 1st prize at the Vibrarte International Music Competition and the International Violin Competition “Andrea Postacchini.” He will be accompanied by pianist David Allen Wehr , who currently holds the Jack W. Geltz Distinguished Piano Chair at Duquesne University and who has collected numerous prestigious awards throughout his performing career.
Despite White House warnings about national security, Congress on Wednesday for the first time decided to override the President's veto of a bill that allows 9/11 families to sue the Saudi Arabian government for damages. President Obama called the override an understandable political mistake given the perceived danger of voting against 9/11 families right before an election, but will also endanger US soldiers and diplomats protected by immunity laws while serving in other countries.
