Philly artists resurrected a Rube Goldberg-like instrument that mimics an entire orchestra

Old City fire update: Chestnut Street is reopen between Second and Third

    Philly artists resurrected a Rube Goldberg-like instrument that mimics an entire orchestra
    The word "orchestra" summons the idea of something formal and elegant: orderly rows of tuxedoed and gowned musicians coaxing heartrendingly beautiful sounds from gleaming brass and shimmering strings, all under the commanding baton of a regal conductor. That image is a far cry from Mauricio Kagel's Zwei Mann Orchester (that's "Two-Man Orchestra" for the German-language-challenged among you).

    Your guide to who's running for PA lieutenant governor - and why you should care
    It's been called the "most irrelevant" political office in Harrisburg. Not this year. The lieutenant governorship of Pennsylvania is normally an afterthought. This election, the race has drawn a big crop of candidates, some more high-profile than others. It's also drawn a significant amount of media interest, much of it focused on the running feud between the current LG and governor.
