Young violinist Nicholas Brady came to the attention of our music audiences when he appeared at the Carmel Bach Festival in 2013 as the youngest musician ever to perform with this world-class international ensemble. A tiny 4-year-old fellow in a suit, he strode with dignified purpose onto the large Sunset stage holding his small violin and bow. He bowed low to the concertgoers and then masterfully played two Bach minuets with his accompanist Lucy Faradany.
Most of us have known couples who fight and then make up, oscillating obsessively between these two passions. This behavior usually doesn’t end well and can adversely impact others. Pacific Repertory Theatre’s latest production, directed by Kenneth Kelleher, gives an account of such a pair, whose epic clashes and sizzling ardor remain historically unrivaled. When Roman general Mark Antony and Egyptian queen Cleopatra fought and made up, entire civilizations trembled.
Our region’s distinguished Ensemble Monterey Chamber Orchestra opens its 26th season, titled “Music that Matters,” with “Wally the Beard,” a fun and fascinating program with an October twist. Conductor John Anderson begins with Sergei Prokofiev’s “Overture on Hebrew Themes” that pays tribute to the beguiling sounds of Klezmer music. The concert’s title comes from Bernard Hermann’s soundtrack for the “Alfred Hitchcock Hour” episode “Wally the Beard,” and includes a narration of the story.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
