FROM THE HISTORY PRESS - Prohibition Pittsburgh:

Pittsburgh is a hardworking city. And hard workers sometimes enjoy the occasional spirit. So, when Prohibition hit the Steel City, it created a level of violence and corruption residents had never witnessed. Illegal producers ran stills in kitchens, basements, bathroom tubs, warehouses and even abandoned distilleries. War between gangs of bootleggers resulted in a number of murders and bombings that placed Pittsburgh on the same level as New York City and Chicago in criminal activity. John Bazzano ordered the killing of the Volpe brothers but did so without the permission of Mafia bosses. His battered body was later found on the street in Brooklyn. Author Richard Gazarik details the shady side of the Steel City during a tumultuous era.

Where: Murrysville Community Library Conference Room

Classical Encounters is a four-part program made possible through a generous grant from the Community Foundation of Murrysville, Export, and Delmont. This mini-music appreciation course is designed to introduce people to the world of classical music or to serve as a refresher course for those somewhat knowledgeable about classical music. It explores the four basic periods of classical music – Baroque, Classical, Romantic and Contemporary. Emphasis is placed on recognizing the various style periods and learning terminologies that improve one’s knowledge and appreciation for what is happening in the music. The goal is to have the listener be more comfortable when listening to classical music.

The instructor is Morrie Brand, Director of the Westmoreland Symphony’s Academy of Music and Music Director of the Westmoreland Youth Symphony Orchestra Program. He is a former college music teacher and professional musician with St. Paul Chamber Orchestra, and is now an active music teacher and composer. He served as Managing Director of the WSO from 2000 until 2017.
