1814 first performance of Ludwig van Beethoven's Symphony No. 8 in Vienna with the composer conducting; when asked by his pupil Carl Czerny why the Eighth Symphony was less popular than the Seventh, Beethoven is said to have replied, "because the Eighth is so much better".
1848 Sir Charles Hubert H. Parry – English composer, teacher and music historian (d. 1918); best known for the choral song Jerusalem, the coronation anthem I was glad, and the ode Blest Pair of Sirens; wrote about music throughout his adult life: several books and 123 articles in Grove's Dictionary.
1914 first performance of George Butterworth's The Banks of Green Willow with about 40 members of the Hallé and Liverpool orchestras conducted by Adrian Boult, his first concert with a professional orchestra.

1962 Marcelo Álvarez – Argentine tenor (56 years old); professional opera career started late (age 32), but he is committed to proceeding carefully, putting a high priority on maintaining the principles of bel canto – a smooth vocal line, volume modulations, and vocal expression of emotions - all while preserving the tonal quality of the voice.
1965 Frank Peter Zimmermann – German violinist (53 years old); plays a Stradivarius known as the ‘Lady Inchiquin’ from 1711, which once belonged to Fritz Kreisler.

The group lasted a year…many attempts to form a permanent chorus where made in the years that followed. In 1952 George Szell called for the formation of a permanent ensemble. The organization now includes the voices of six different chorale groups. Jill Harbaugh is the manager of Choruses, tasked with the job of making sure that all of the groups have what they need to stay in tune. You’ll learn what it takes to become a member of these groups from the person who makes sure they have what they need to keep the groups humming along.
