November 19

1739 premiere of Jean-Philippe Rameau's opera Dardanus by the Académie de musique at its theater in the Palais-Royal in Paris; critics were not impressed: the incoherent plot called for the appearance of a sea monster, violating the French operatic convention requiring a clear purpose for encounters with supernatural beings; revised in 1744 and again in 1760.

1859 Mikhail Ippolitov-Ivanov – Russian composer, conductor and teacher (d.1935); music is rarely heard today except for the Caucasian Sketches, which include the Procession of the Sardar.

1875 first performance of Peter Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 3 'Polish' under the baton of Nikolai Rubinstein at the first concert of the Russian Music Society's season in Moscow; unique among Tchaikovsky’s symphonies: the only one in a major key and the only one in five movements.

1923 first performances of Ernö Dohnányi's Festive Overture, Zoltán Kódaly's Psalmus Hungaricus and Béla Bartók's Dance Suite at a gala concert in Budapest for the 50th Anniversary of the union of the cities Buda and Pest (on opposite sides of the Danube).

1934 David Lloyd-Jones – English conductor (83 years old); also an editor and translator, especially of Russian operas.

22:00 CITY CLUB FORUM – recorded Friday at The City Club of Cleveland, a citadel of free speech, Man vs. Machine: The Future of Manufacturing in Ohio - Panel Discussion

Manufacturing output is growing in Ohio. Currently 20 percent above pre-2009 levels, the Ohio manufacturing sector has been investing in technology with productivity expected to increase by 75 percent by 2025 for the 18 counties of Northeast Ohio.  However, the increased production doesn’t necessarily mean increased employment. Why? Automation. The Bureau of Labor Market predicts manufacturing jobs to decline by 2018 – the White House released a report last year, which concluded an 83 percent chance that automation will replace a job that pays $20 an hour. As the rise of robots and automated machinery continues, manufacturing will become more productive, with less human workers.

But, educators in Northeast Ohio are fighting to prioritize manufacturing jobs, which is still the largest sector of Ohio’s economy. Tri-C is redesigning their Unified Technology Center on the Metropolitan Campus into a state-of-the-art Manufacturing Technology sector and is working alongside other colleges and universities in the area so students are prepared for the higher level of skills that manufacturing jobs involving automation will require.

However, is this enough? In an age of automation, how can Ohio avoid unemployment, but maintain a leader in manufacturing? Does manufacturing still matter?

Panelists: Alicia Booker, Vice President, Cuyahoga Community College; Scott N. Paul, President, Alliance for American Manufacturing; Michael D. Siegal, Chairman and CEO, Olympic Steel, Inc.  This conversation is moderated by Crain's Cleveland Business Publisher and Editor Elizabeth McIntyre.
