1872 Frederick Stock – German-born American conductor and composer (d.1942); Music Director of the Chicago Symphony, 1905-1942; his 37-year tenure in Chicago was surpassed in the US only by Eugene Ormandy's 44-year directorship with the Philadelphia Orchestra.

1889 first performance of Richard Strauss's Don Juan by the Orchestra of the Weimar Opera with the composer conducting; the piece put the 24-year-old composer on the map and the extreme virtuosity of nearly every part has made the piece a staple of orchestral auditions for most instruments.

1890 first performance of Johannes Brahms's String Quintet No. 2 in Vienna by the Rosé Quintet; known as the 'Prater' (the public park in Vienna); at the first rehearsal, a friend told Brahms the first movement reminded him of “Brahms strolling in the Prater” and the composer replied, “You've hit it. Among the pretty girls!”

1898 premiere of Samuel Coleridge-Taylor's oratorio Hiawatha's Wedding Feast at the Royal College of Music in London, commissioned by England's Three Choirs Festival; the recommendation for the commission came from Sir Edward Elgar.

1906 premiere of Ethel Smyth's opera The Wreckers (under its German title Strandrecht) in Leipzig; Sir Thomas Beecham conducted the British premiere in 1909; the American premiere waited until 2007 in a concert performance by the American Symphony.

22:00 CITY CLUB FORUM – recorded today at The City Club of Cleveland, a citadel of free speech, Adoption in America Today: The Good, the Bad, and a Path to Reform with April Dinwoodie,
Chief Executive, The Donaldson Adoption Institute; when adoption processes and practices are ethical, parents and professionals are informed,
and children are at the center, the extended family of adoption can be a model for a truly evolved definition of family.
A lack of uniform laws, regulations and consistent standards, coupled with a lack of education, can leave everyone in the extended family of adoption unprepared and vulnerable,
including children, parents and professionals. After decades of research, passionate advocacy and practical experiences, why haven’t policies and practices on behalf of children
and families moved far enough and fast enough?
