'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

The French Ebene Quartet will make its local debut April 15 when it plays a concert of 18th- and 19th-century music for the Pittsburgh Chamber Music Society.

The ensemble, which studied with the Ysaye Quartet and a founding member of the Takacs Quartet, has won several awards in Germany and has a burgeoning discography on Virgin Classics. The Ebene Quartet is known for its adventuresome programming, which includes jazz and other arrangements.

The program will feature Felix Mendelssohn's final major work, String Quartet No. 6, written in memory of his sister Fanny, who died a few months earlier. The concert will conclude with Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky's String Quartet No. 1, which features an irresistibly beautiful slow movement.

The concert starts at 7:30 p.m. at Carnegie Music Hall, Oakland. Admission is $35; $15 for students.
