Today is National Dentist’s Day

Today is National Dentist’s Day

Observed annually on March 6, it is time to say “Thank You” to your dentist. Most of us would rather be someplace else than sitting in a dental chair. However, when our checkup is done, our teeth are cleaned, the cavities are filled, the broken tooth is fixed, or a toothache is gone, we appreciate what the dentist has done for us. Keep brushing those theeth …

Today in History: World Premiere of #SwanLake in 1877

Today in History: World Premiere of #SwanLake in 1877

“Swan Lake” was Peter I. Tchaikovsky’s (1840-1893) first ballet composition. Apart from “Sleeping Beauty” (1890) and “The Nutcracker” (1892), it is considered today as perhaps the most important classical ballet. However, its first performance in Moscow in 1877 was met with harsh criticism by audiences and critics alike. Tchaikovsky was very disappointed by the failure of his first ballet and tried to find the cause in his music. For years, he intended to re-edit his work, but he never did. After Tchaikovsky’s death, Marius Petipa and Riccardo Driggo drastically reworked the ballet’s choreography. On February 17, 1894, the revised ballet premiered in St. Petersburg and was a huge success. Today, “Swan Lake” is considered to be Tchaikovsky’s masterpiece.

Today in History: Alexander Graham Bell born in 1847

Today in History: Alexander Graham Bell born in 1847

171 years ago today, the American scientist, inventor and engineer was born in Edinburgh, Scotland. Bell studied at the University of Edinburgh. In 1871, he went to Boston to become a teacher for the deaf. Bell’s mother and wife were both deaf, which had a major influence on his work. From 1873 to 1877, he worked as a professor of speech physiology. His research on hearing and speech led him to experiment with hearing devices which culminated in the development of the telephone in 1876. His invention attracted a great deal of attention at the 1776 Philadelphia International Exhibition, but over the years, Bell was not much involved in the further development of the phone. It is said that that Bell refused to have a telephone in his study, feeling it was an intrusion on his work as a scientist. Bell died in 1822 at the age of 75.

Today is National #Umbrella Day

Today is National #Umbrella Day

The umbrella keeps us dry from the rain and can also protect us from the heat of the sun. The basic umbrella was invented some 4000+ years ago, evidenced in ancient art of Egypt, Greece and China (the Chinese were the first to waterproof umbrellas). The first umbrella shop – James Smith and Sons – opened in 1830 and is still located in London, England.

Today in History: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart born in 1791

Today in History: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart born in 1791

262 years ago today, the prolific and influential composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756 – 1791) was born in Salzburg, Austria. Mozart’s father Leopold recognized and furthered his son’s musical genius early on. At the age of six, Wolfgang Amadeus was already a sensation on the piano and the violin. At age nine, he composed his first opera – “Apollo and Hyacinthus.” At 13, he was appointed “concert master“ by the Archbishop of Salzburg, performing before European royalty. In 1781 Mozart moved from Salzburg to Vienna where he worked as an independent composer, achieving fame but little financial security. During the last decade of his life, he composed many of his best-known symphonies and operas, including parts of his unfinished Requiem. Mozart died at his home in Vienna on December 5, 1791. The circumstances of his early death have been the source of much debate. Mozart was survived by his wife Constance and two sons.
