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.
In a joint interview with her vice presidential nominee Sen. Tim Kaine, Hillary Clinton complained of a "Hillary standard" -- suggesting she's faced more scrutiny than other top-level politicians. Clinton cited "unfounded, inaccurate, mean-spirited attacks with no basis in truth" pointing to Republicans' criticism at their party's convention last week. When asked of Trump's moniker of "Crooked Hillary" she said "I'm not going to engage in that kind of insult fest that he seems to thrive on."
Was the Police union correct to condemn Clinton and the DNC for not inviting relatives of slain officers to speak while scheduling the mothers of people killed by police?
