Chatham Baroque presents Paris in Pittsburgh
Dec 18-20


“One of Pittsburgh’s greatest treasures” says the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Chatham Baroque continues to excite local, national, and international audiences with dazzling technique and lively interpretations of seventeenth- and eighteenth-century music played on instruments of the period.

Not only are the musicians talented, they are good at providing historical and musical references for the pieces they perform. (I had the good fortune to attend one of their concerts and hope to attend this one.) The trio who play the baroque violin, viola da gamba, theorbo and baroque guitar tours nationally and internationally, and has recorded ten critically acclaimed CDs.

Ticket prices range from $10 to $27. Find out more, buy tickets

 Holiday Hints


Plastic light hangers tend to bend and break easily. Ditch the over-promisers and use office binder clips to easily – and evenly — attach holiday lights instead



 Give glitter the heave-ho with a lint roller. Glittery bows, crafts and holiday decorations have at long last met their match. A lint roller will remove glitter from everything from your floor to your clothes to your cat. Although...when I see glitter on someone else's clothes or in their hair, it makes me smile.
 
 
Zap sap with toothpaste. Selecting and decorating  a real Christmas tree is fun, but getting the sap off your hands afterwards is a different story. Fortunately, there’s a quick and easy solution: scrub your hands with abrasive toothpaste!
 
Use tinfoil to keep your fireplace clean - just like lining the bottom of your oven to make after-dinner clean up a breeze.  An especially good idea if you have pets that might want to explore the cold ashes! Just place a double layer across the bottom before you light a fire. Then, after everything’s cooled the next day, simply fold the ashes into the foil and toss it.
