BNY Mellon Grand Classics: Majestic Bruckner
Join Manfred Honeck for his second weekend of the Viennese Celebration and a look into the latter half of the Romantic period, as he takes the stage with Bruckner’s majestic Symphony No. 8. Sometimes nicknamed The Apocalyptic, the Eighth Symphony rises from a doom-laden opening to a noble third movement, and is some of the most ecstatic music the composer has ever created. Acclaimed for their interpretation of Bruckner, following their recent Grammy Award nomination, the epic Symphony No. 8 with Manfred Honeck and the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra is not to be missed.
Pennsylvania joined 17 other states in a lawsuit against President Trump's executive order to suspend this week, subsidies to insurers who pay medical expenses for low income patients, a key component of Obamacare. The President contends these reimbursements make insurance companies rich at taxpayers' expense totaling $7 billion this year, ballooning to $10 billion in 2018. Opponents accuse Trump of sabotaging the law, by removing these subsidies forcing millions of low income people to pay higher insurance premiums and out-of-pocket medical costs.
