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
Supreme Court on Monday threw out a Texas abortion access law in a victory to supporters of abortion rights. The 2013 law required doctors performing abortions to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals and for the abortion clinics to meet the same building standards as ambulatory surgical centers. The state said the law was passed "to ensure patient safety and raise standards of care." The number of abortion clinics in Texas dropped to 19 from 42 since its passage.
