The Soft Winds Dinner Dance
$45 Dinner & Dancing
$30 Music & Dancing Only
The original Soft Winds were formed in 1960 and have performed at a number of venues in Pittsburgh and teh surrounding tri-state area. They perform tunes in a variety of styles, while remaining true to the doo-wop category. From a style taht builds on progressive voices as when they do "At the Hop," to the classics as when they do"Come Go with Me," "I Only Have Eyes for You," and "In the Still of the Night."
This is a group taht has the versatility to also do songs that became popular during the later doo-wop revival f the 60's. Songs like "Runaround Sue," "Barbara Ann," and "I Really Love You." The Soft Winds have recorded two original songs entitled "Cross My Heart" and "Oh Baby," both on the HAC label.

Wired to Win
Calendar: Local Calendar
Quercus  
09 May 2008
Wired to Win, an extraordinary new film in IMAX®, showcases the amazing ability of the human brain to overcome adversity, accomplish the near-impossible, and power each of us to victory and success in life.

The brain’s abilities are illustrated through cyclists racing in the Tour De France. Over the course of the event, they are caught up in hair-raising crashes, dramatic battles over the Alps and Pyrenees and action-packed descents down steep mountain roads. Their ultimate goal? The finish line on the Champs-Elysees in Paris.

The film raises the questions "how do they do this?" and "why do they do this?" Ultimately the answers lie within the mind and the human brain itself.


$8 adults; $6 children 3-12 and seniors 62+

$7/$5 for members
