'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.

Manfred Honeck and the Pittsburgh Symphony will give 11 concerts in five countries during their 2013 European Festivals Tour, Aug. 26 to Sept. 15.

Performances begin at the Grafenegg Festival in Austria, Aug. 29 and 30, and continue at the Berlin Festival, Aug. 31, and the George Enescu Festival in Bucharest, Romania, Sept. 3.

After concerts in Paris on Sept. 6, and Dusseldorf and Frankfurt, Germany, Sept. 7 and 8, the tour concludes with pairs of programs at the Lucerne Festival in Switzerland, Sept. 10 and 11, and the Beethoven Festival in Bonn, Germany, Sept. 12 and 14.

Soloists during the tour will include violinist Anne Sophie Mutter playing Antonin Dvorak's Concerto and Witold Lutoslawski's Chain II, and pianist Yuja Wang playing Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No. 1. In Lucerne and Bonn, percussionist Martin Grubinger will play John Corigliano's “Conurer” Concerto, which received its world premeire at Heinz Hall with Evelyn Glennie as soloist and Marin Alsop conducting.
