history fact – February 15, 2017

Today is Wednesday, Feb. 15, the 46th day of 2017. There are 319 days left in the year.

Today’s Highlight in History:

On Feb. 15, 1867, “On the Beautiful Blue Danube,” a waltz by Johann Strauss (the Younger), was publicly performed for the first time by the Vienna Men’s Choral Society, garnering a polite, if decidedly less than enthusiastic, audience response. (A revised orchestral version proved much more successful.)
