NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The Public Arts Commission is asking both sets of artists whose work is under the Veterans Memorial Bridge to find some kind of compromise.    Two months ago, community-sponsored murals on the bridge's pillars were painted over by Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art to restore a previous work, "Harmonic Bridge."   Both pieces predate the establishment of the commission and neither had more than a verbal agreement with city. Nor did the museum approach the commission for permission to paint over the murals, despite applying for two other works on city property.    On Tuesday, the community group's application

Offerings this week include great chamber music featuring the renowned Takács String Quartet with pianist Garrick Ohlsson, a unique and highly engaging piano recital celebrating birdsong, Beethoven's Violin Concerto, with soloist Pinchas Zuckerman and much, much more, including the all-encompassing Tanglewood On Parade festivities. Read below for the details.

Not to be outdone, concerts at Tannery Pond and the Sevenars Festival also present unsurpassed and diverse chamber music.

As always, the place

Director Michael Showalter's "The Big Sick," based on Pakistani-born comedian/actor Kumail Nanjiani's real-life story, is often hilarious proof that in jest there is truth. While gleefully verifying that in dedicated hands the classical romantic comedy remains a viable entertainment, this convivial foray into whether or not love conquers all also asserts a humanistic message that is of late egregiously absent from our national consciousness. Nanjiani's tale sagely solicits art to fill this vacuum.   On the surface it plays rather simply. Kumail, who Ubers for a living when he's not trying to "kill" the audience at a Chicago comedy club, one night

Tanglewood enters its third week, and the highlights are many; indeed, every concert will be memorable. The legendary Emerson String Quartet present a musico-theatric "Russian Fantasy," followed by an all-Schubert evening. Deeply moving symphonies by Bernstein and Tchaikovsky ensue, with heroic piano concertos by Beethoven and Prokofiev to follow. Orchestral masterworks by Kernis, Britten and Sibelius, and a celebration of early-20th century French vocal music conclude this week's listing of stellar performances of great and amazingly diverse musical offerings.

If, for whatever inexplicable reason the bounteous musical fare at Tanglewood isn't enough to pique your

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The city of North Adams has received a $25,000 matching MassDevelopment grant through the Commonwealth Places program to support the build out of improvements to historic Eagle Street.

To receive the grant, NESI worked with Patronicity, a community project based crowdfunding portal, to raise the necessary $25,000. The group used creative approaches such as a hot dog eating competition, a 48-hour dollar-for-dollar match, and local business support to

Ansel Elgort, who plays the title character in director Edgar Wright's "Baby Driver," stylishly employs an entrancing balletic flair in his hip, post-millennial interpretation of what his generation's consummate getaway man might be like.    Using flashbacks interspersed throughout the action-packed drama to inform just what goes into the making of this rare bird of the crime world, Wright, who also wrote the script, pens his protagonist's character study in the fashion generally reserved for superheroes. It's all environment, inner genius and je ne sais quoi.   The implied question that serves as subtext of this quick-moving, smart-alecky glimpse

With programs across the region, concertgoers will have a wide range of classical music to enjoy in venues large and small: from solo piano and orchestral to opera and musical theater in concert; from chamber music to a thrilling Bach Brandenburg Concerto.
