Birthday Tributes

31 - birthdayMost people in the music world will be aware that today is the anniversary of J.S.Bach’s birthday.  Many will also know that Bach shares his birthday (but not birth date) with Haydn.  But this is far too obvious for us 😉

These two legendary composers share their birthday with several others; Johann Schultz, Otto Lindblad, Red Norvo, Arthur Rubenstein, Kristian Blak, and Dennis Kamakahi.  What’s more that list does not include all the song writers who were also born this day {gasps}

Our advice to parents reading this with a child born this day is to invest in some lessons in composition.  They may not grow up to be another Bach but they could become a well known composer or song-writer.
