    The future of Philadelphia music: String quartets in helicopters?

    Popular Stories Is there a more delicious hunk of programming this entire season than the two Schubert piano trios being played at the Curtis Institute of Music? It’s possible to speak of Tuesday night’s performance of the E Flat and B Flat trios in present tense because they are still, in a way, going on. Curtis streamed the concert via Facebook Live and is extending its reach for a week by putting the entire two hours on the school’s Facebook and YouTube pages

    Netflix has let us a little deeper into the world of its upcoming Will Smith-starring fantasy movie, Bright, with a new trailer that shows us everything from who really runs the alternate reality Los Angeles setting, to what you definitely shouldn’t call an orc.
