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
Woodland Hills High School Principal Kevin Murray suspended last week after he was recorded allegedly threatening a 14-year-old special needs student saying "I'll knock your (expletive) teeth down your throat." Speaking through his attorney about the incident following a school board meeting, he admitted to being a disciplinarian but suggested there was more to the story as he was defending a female school employee being treated disrespectfully and called a derogatory term. At the board meeting many supported Murray, while others called for him to be fired.
