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
Ohio Republican lawmakers are upset with President Obama's plan to formally rename Alaska's Mt. McKinley, to "Denali" during his trip to Alaska this week. Denali is the Native American name for the peak. Alaska has a longstanding petition to rename the mountain to Denali. It's been called Mt McKinley after the nation's 25th President for over 100 years. Ohio Congressman Bob Gibbs calls the move a political stunt that is insulting to all Ohioans. McKinley never visited Alaska.
