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
The Liberty Bridge on Monday reopened for the first time since a fire on September 2nd that that warped a key structural steel support causing the closure of the essential south hills artery for more than 55,000 vehicles daily. Concerns about the bridge's strength remain, as state police will enforce restrictions for vehicles weighing nine tons or more. Firetrucks, school buses, tractor-trailers and Port Authority buses will be prohibited. PennDot hopes to raise the weight limit to 30 tons over the next few weeks.
So who do you think won last night's Presidential Debate?
