The Chicago Symphony Orchestra played Schubert, Mozart and Schumann in Copley Symphony Hall on Wednesday evening, presented by La Jolla Music Society. Joan and Irwin Jacobs, whose generosity sparked the creation of the Jacobs Music Center and the ongoing success of our own San Diego Symphony, were in the audience to receive well-earned applause for sponsoring this concert.
Devising programs for season-opening concerts is a challenge every orchestra director approaches warily, especially when your players return to the concert hall after a successful summer of outdoor concerts, often with guest artists from the free-wheeling worlds of Broadway, film and jazz. San Diego Symphony CEO Martha Gilmer met that challenge with a three-masterwork program in the Jacobs Music Center on Friday night as the orchestra launched its 2017-18 season.
Bonnie Wright, Fresh Sound’s founder and artistic director, has spent two decades roaming out-of-the-way places where America’s musical mavericks perform, from Ojai to Knoxville, Tenn. Wright’s commitment to expanding San Diego’s musical horizons has found an ever-growing audience, and the word long ago went out among artists that "playing in Bonnie’s series" offered an opportunity to take risks in a receptive atmosphere, no matter that the fee would be small (although camping out in Wright’s...
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".
