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
KQV/Trib Total Media Listener Poll Which concerns you most about the exposed DNC emails; that Russia may have played a role, or apparent party favoritism shown Hillary Clinton during the primaries? <More Info>
The release by WikiLeaks of 20,000 stolen emails from the DNC's computer servers, proved embarrassing to Democratic leaders, while raising questions about Russian intelligence agencies disrupting the 2016 campaign. The emails exposed how the Democratic apparatus favored Hillary Clinton over her primary rival, Senator Bernie Sanders, triggering the resignation of the party chairwoman. Clinton's campaign accused the email leaks on Russia, for the purpose of helping Donald Trump.
Has Hillary Clinton been held to a different standard, being scrutinized more than other past presidential candidates?
