Brooklyn Rider: A Walking Fire - Musical Excursions to Clejani, Budapest, and Esfahan
Experience the excitement of Brooklyn Rider's musical excursion through Romania, Hungary, and Persia while enjoying complimentary food and drink! Praised for its “stunningly imaginative” performances (Lucid Culture), the adventurous, intrepid string quartet Brooklyn Rider combines a wildly eclectic repertoire with a gripping performance style that continues to attract legions of fans and draw critical acclaim from classical, world, and rock critics. NPR credits Brooklyn Rider with “recreating the 300-year-old form of string quartet as a vital and creative 21st-century ensemble,” and Vice likens Brooklyn Rider to “motocross daredevils who never screw up a stunt.” For tickets and information, visit http://pittsburghchambermusic.org/BrooklynRider.php
Several retailers have taken a stand against Thanksgiving Day openings this year, with GameStop, Lowes, TJ Maxx and Staple’s saying they will keep their doors closed until Black Friday. Although at first glance it appears encouraging for those who complain that shoppers and employees should spend the holiday with their families, a report from in-store analytics firm Shopper Trak found that Thanksgiving Day store visits in 2014 increased 27.3 percent from the year prior.
