Isabelle Leonard lends her superb mezzo-soprano voice to Gustav Mahler’s Fourth Symphony. BECCA FAY/PHOTOEarlier this season, the dazzling mezzo-soprano Isabel Leonard joined Michael Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony as part of the orchestra’s season-long Leonard Bernstein celebration (and, later that week, gave an all-Bernstein solo recital for San Francisco Performances.) Now Leonard is set to return to the Symphony as the vocal soloist in music of earlier eras.
John Adams has lived in Berkeley since the 1970s, but in recent years, he’s spent long stretches of time in a cabin in California’s Gold Country. That’s where he goes to compose, and it’s where he wrote much of his new opera, “Girls of the Golden West.”It was a good place to be, since the events of the opera take place close to his mountain getaway.
A modern oratorio exploring the immigrant experience and the lives of Dreamers is in the works at Cal Performances, the UC Berkeley-based presenting organization has announced. “Dreamers,” a collaboration between composer Jimmy López and playwright Nilo Cruz, will receive its world premiere by conductor Esa-Pekka Salonen and the Philharmonia Orchestra of London during the orchestra’s 2019 Cal Performances residency.
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".
