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
Over the years the traditional thanksgiving feast has featured turkey as the primary entree. The price for putting Thanksgiving dinner on the table for 10 people is expected to rise slightly this year, clocking in at $49.41. That's 37 cents higher than in 2013. The good news is that a drop in fuel prices make it cheaper to drive to Grandma's house, but If you're traveling by train or air, you'll pay 2-percent more over last year.
