  • Composer Ofer Ben-Amots is an Israeli-American composer and teacher of music composition and theory at Colorado College.

  • Mandolin player Sierra Hull played on the stage of the Grand Ole Opry when she was only 11 years old.

  • Beethoven’s Symphony No. 3 was originally titled “Bonaparte” to honor Napoleon, who he believed embodied the democratic and anti-monarchical ideals of the French Revolution. He renamed the piece “Eroica” in response to Napoleon proclaiming himself Emperor of the French on May 14, 1804.
