07/15/2016 Toronto Summer Music Festival: Musical Union of 1865 Downtown $20 - $29

In this tribute to the Musical Union of London, a concert society that introduced many European artists and composers to London's audiences, the acclaimed Parker Quartet offers a program of solid-gold staples of the string quartet repertoire. Haydn, the first great master of the string quartet, is represented with a typically sophisticated work bubbling with warmth and joy, the String Quartet in D Major, Op. 71 No. 2. Schubert's String Quartet No. 15 in G Major, D. 887 – his last, and grandest – is a masterpiece overflowing with energy and bittersweet lyricism. Beethoven's String Quartet in G Major, Op 18 No. 2, from the composer's first published quartet collection, is an exciting and humorous piece in the mode of his teacher, Haydn.

In what one Chicago-area Buick dealership is calling a “White Friday” sale, customers who buy any brand new Buick or GMC vehicle on Nov. 28 and 29 will have the chance to get all that money back come Christmas, reports the Chicago Tribune.
The catch is, it has to snow six inches or more on Christmas Day, a measurement that must be recorded at the O’Hare International Airport weather station.
The chances of getting any amount of snowfall in Chicago on that day are between 40% to 50%, according to the Illinois Climatologist office, much less an entire six inches.
Even so, if the dealership is smart, it’s got some kind of insurance policy backing this deal up.
