Violinist William Boan Saskatoon Symphony / Photo Electric Umbrella/Liam Ric When you ask Saskatoon violinist William Boan about his approaching concert with the Saskatoon Symphony Orchestra, he shows no sign of jitters.When you mention that he’s sharing the bill with Polaris prize winning throat singer Tanya Tagaq, who usually sells out, he still doesn’t flinch.

Ryan M. Hunt and Taylor Bloom star in The Simon and Garfunkel Story. When he sings Homeward Bound, a song that Simon & Garfunkel made famous in the 1960s, actor Ryan M. Hunt gets emotional. “‘Each town looks the same to me, the movies and the factories.

Candy, costumes, make-believe and more; for Sylvia Chave Halloween isn’t just one day, it’s a season. Chave is kicking off the Singing with Sylvia season with her Halloween Howl (Oct. 30 & 31, 2017) at The Refinery. These concerts are designed for the pre-school set but Chave says her music does just as much for the whole family. “I think families don’t have the kinds of opportunities to sing together that we did as children growing up.” She explains, “Music is a great connector.
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".
