And though the program was constructed of familiar composers, it seemed to make several points all at once. Goldstein told the audience the theme was orchestral, and his playing certainly supported the claim.

A jury of six men and six women was selected Monday to decide the fate of Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane, clearing the way for opening arguments Tuesday in Norristown. "We have our jury," Common Pleas Court Judge Wendy Demchick-Alloy announced after a nine-hour selection process. She said Kane's trial on perjury, conspiracy, obstruction, and other charges would last a week. Earlier in the day, the judge read a list of people who will either be witnesses at the trial or whose names may come up in testimony.
