  • Erie Philharmonic
    Since 1913, the Erie Philharmonic has been on a melody-driven mission to enrich its surrounding communities with live concerts and stirring performances. Tchaikovsky's symphony begins by spotlighting one of America's most successful composers, Christopher Theofanidis, as he conducts "Rainbow Body," an evocative movement inspired by medieval mystic Hildegard of Bingen and her propensity to lead chants at high-school football games. Next, guitarist Ana Vidovic continues her drag race to the top of the classical genre by cramming the swaying, syncopated rhythms of a Spanish concerto into open ears. Path?tique closes the evening with a spirited rendition of Tchaikovsky's final symphonic piece. Fueled by the juxtaposition of varying emotions, Path?tique tows listeners to the top of triumphant crests, only to yank them back into the darkened valleys of personal upheaval and frustration over uncertain weather forecasts.

  • MUFON
    In 1969, aficionados from six midwestern states formed the Midwest UFO Network?MUFON for short?to improve and organize their growing reports of UFO sightings. Now known as the Mutual UFO Network, MUFON's more than 3,000 members have formed chapters throughout the United States and various countries around the globe. More than 900 of those members are trained field investigators who interview UFO witnesses and compose written accounts of sightings. Some of those findings, as well as the latest research findings, are showcased at MUFON's annual International UFO Symposium, which rotates through the United States and is sometimes held on Earth's second moon. MUFON runs similar events throughout the year, and prints more info about sightings and UFO science in its monthly journal.

  • Erie County Historical Society
    The Erie County Historical Society doesn't preside over just one museum—it maintains five of them. Of course, four of the museums are relatively small-scale, seeing that they're housed in former homes. Two homes from the Civil War era, known as the Battles Museums of Rural Life, feature historical gems as well as gardens and outdoor trails. Alternatively, the Cashier's House showcases relics related to the CFO of Erie's federal bank branch, who built the townhouse in 1839. At Watson-Curtze Mansion, the resplendence of the industrial era in Erie shines. And the Museum of Erie County History, exhibits pay homage to local history from pre-settlement to present day.
