December 17, 1770 – Ludwig van Beethoven’s Baptism

I am not certain that I am going to have time to make a lengthy post today and I don’t usually write about people’s birthdays because being born is not historically significant.

It is unknown when Beethoven was born and thanks to Google’s doodle for today I know that he was baptised today 245 years ago.

Ludwig van Beethoven has made a profound impact on my life and I found a performance that I wanted to share.

Donor Recognition for the performance;

Charlie would have turned 19 on September 18, 2014, the date of this performance. He was always sharing joy. He lived and gave with courage. And he was always bringing people together.

Funding for seats at the four performances of this program, for people who otherwise might have been unable to attend, for filming concert, and for distributing it, so it can be freely shared around the world, has been provided by Charlie’s family. It is dedicated to everyone who shares joy, to everyone who lives and gives with courage and to everyone who brings people together.
