1868 Scott Joplin – American ragtime composer and pianist (d.1917); later called ‘The King of Ragtime’; during his brief career, wrote some 44 original pieces, a ragtime ballet, and 2 operas; his Maple Leaf Rag was ragtime's first and most influential hit.

1944 first performance of David Diamond's Rounds for string orchestra, by the Minneapolis Symphony conducted by Dimtri Mitropoulos who had commissioned the work, saying "Write me a happy work. These are distressing times; most of the difficult music I play is distressing. Make me happy."
