To add something extra to the On This Day thread I started in April, I shall occasionally produce a little quiz reflecting events that happened on the relevant day. So, for December 7th (other tMPers, please feel free to join in by adding your own 'on this day' quizzes on here!) 1. Which jazz trumpeter gained US citizenship in 1998 after a six year struggle? 2. Which Italian composer was born on this day in 1863? Famous nowadays for only one major work, an extract of which has proved popular with soprano cornettists everywhere! 3. Which American orchestra gave its first concert on this day in 1842? 4. Which famous London 'serious' music venue was opened on this day in 1732? 5. Which actor set a world swimming record for the 150 yards on this day in 1925? 6. Who stepped down as Labour leader and made an Earl a few hours later on this day in 1955? No need to PM me, just a bit of fun!
