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
Chuck Jones, president of the United Steelworkers Local 1999, in an interview says he believes Donald Trump lied to the Carrier workers when taking credit for preserving 1,100 production jobs, claiming another 550 will still lose theirs and the company collects millions in tax breaks. Trump responded tweeting "Jones has done a terrible job representing workers…needs more time working, less time talking". Jones claims within a half hour of the Trump tweets he was getting threatening calls and messages.
