Wherever you go in the next year, there Leonard Bernstein is. A monster centenary celebration kicks off Aug. 25 on the late, great composer-conductor’s 99th birthday, continuing through what would have been his 100th on Aug. 25, 2018. Big shows on tap in Philly and with Philadelphians include the Philadelphia Orchestra’s Carnegie Hall season opener Oct. 4 playing Bernstein’s film score to On the Waterfront and its Oct. 12-15 Kimmel Center program performing the complete West Side Story score.
Like the Broad Street Run, the new blockbuster watercolor show at the Art Museum is a distance event. With 175 paintings on display, you're going to need to pace yourself for "American Watercolor in the Age of Homer and Sargent" if you hope to make it to the show's big finish - a gallery packed with a full wall of Winslow Homer paintings and another wall of John Singer Sargents - with any stamina left to take in all those treasures.
Any season that opens with tulips and ends with beer is bound to be a good one, and that's the happy case why not make that growler with spring 2017 in Philly. The Philadelphia Flower Show ushers in the solstice in March with a Holland theme, promising drifts of fragrant bulbs.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
