1816 premiere of Luigi Cherubini’s Requiem in Paris at a commemoration service for Louis XVI of France on the 23rd anniversary of his beheading during the French Revolution; the work was greatly admired by Beethoven, Schumann and Brahms.

1848 Henri Duparc – French composer (d.1933); best known for his 17 mélodies (art songs); a mental illness, diagnosed at the time as neurasthenia, caused him abruptly to cease composing at age 37, in 1885.

1941 Plácido Domingo – Spanish tenor, conductor and arts administrator (79 years old); has sung at least 144 different opera roles and has made well over 100 recordings; one of the giants of the 20th (and now, 21st) century.

1944 Uto Ughi – Italian violinist and conductor (76 years old); considered one of Italy's greatest living violinists; also active in the promotion of classical music.

22:00 CITY CLUB FORUM – recorded Friday at The City Club of Cleveland, a citadel of free speech, Letters From a Young Education Reformer - Frederick Hess, Ph.D., Director of Education Policy Studies, American Enterprise Institute

Dr. Frederick M. Hess is not your average high school teacher. For the two years he taught 9th and 10thgrade in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, he grew frustrated that the education system made it hard for teachers and kids to have a “wondrous, joyous, liberating” educational experience. So, he quit, obtained his Ph.D. at Harvard, and now is the Resident Scholar and Director of Education Policy Studies of the American Enterprise Institute.

His latest book, Letters to a Young Education Reformer, details his 25 years of working in and around education reform. While Hess acknowledges the passion for change that education reformers have, he describes frustration at the “one-size-fits-all” nature of recent education policies. His research focuses on past mistakes and the methods in how reform actually works.

In addition to high school, Hess has taught at University of Virginia, the University of Pennsylvania, Georgetown University, Rice University, Johns Hopkins University, and Harvard University. After graduating from Brandeis University, he earned an M.A. and Ph.D. in government, as well as an M.Ed. in teaching and curriculum from Harvard University.
