The Harlem Quartet: Take the 'A' Train
The Harlem Quartet, a string quartet, will perform music by Wynton Marsalis, Chick Corea, Billy Strayhorn, Guido Gavilan, and Walter Piston. Join us at 6:30pm for a pre-concert mixer! The Harlem Quartet's mission is to advance diversity in classical music, engaging young and new audiences through the discovery and presentation of varied repertoire that includes works by minority composers.
For this year’s St. Patrick’s Day parade, the city of Pittsburgh will be paying police officers to patrol Market Square. In years past merchants in Market Square paid for off-duty officers to ensure the safety of revelers. Fraternal Order of Police head Mike LaPorte is questioning this policy, saying taxpayer dollars should not be used to pay for a private event.
