'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.

‘Pittsburgh Sings!' unites 5 choirs

Pittsburgh Concert Chorale's often-adventurous programming will broaden Sunday when it will present “Pittsburgh Sings!” — a festival performance bringing together five choirs.

Chartiers Valley High School choirs, St. Nicholas Orthodox Serbian Church choir of Monroeville, the City Charter High School choir and Pittsburgh Concert Chorale will each perform separately before joining forces for excerpts from “Carmina Burana” by Carl Off.

Each group has been rehearsing the repertoire separately for weeks, finally singing together at the dress rehearsal Sunday afternoon.

The concert starts at 4 p.m. Sunday at Carnegie Music Hall, Oakland. Admission is $5.

Capitol Steps to perform at Byham

You've heard the song and dance of the presidential candidates — now go see what The Capitol Steps have to say, or sing, about all of it.

The satirical political troupe was founded in 1981 when some Senate staffers in Washington, D.C., were preparing some skits for a Christmas party, and they've been slinging the mud ever since.

If you're still undecided about who to vote for in Tuesday's election, maybe they can help. They'll present the issues as well as either of the candidates. They perform at 4 p.m. Sunday at the Byham Theater. Admission is $30. Voter ID is not required.

Details: 412-456-6666, www.trustarts.org.

Science Center effort

The Carnegie Science Center is asking people to bring new pairs of socks during the next three weekends for a drive that will help homeless people in the Pittsburgh area. The Stockings of Love project, a partnership between the North Side center and Citizens Bank, will benefit the Homeless Children's Education Fund, which helps local families. The organization is seeking new socks for both adults and children. The first 200 visitors who bring socks and purchase an adult or child general admission will get a free Omnimax film ticket, to be used for a movie that day. The drive will be held Saturdays and Sundays through Nov. 18. Details: www.homelessfund.org
