Happy 122nd Birthday, Igor

Born June 17, 1882, Igor Stravinsky was one of the 20th century's greatest and most influential composers. His The Rite of Spring and The Fire Bird Suite are standard pieces in any contemporary classical library.

Sadly, he's no longer around to celebrate the bithday he shares with Barry Manilow, Joe Piscopo, Venus Williams, Greg Kinnear, and M.C. Escher. Wouldn't that be a fun party?

You can read his bio and get a number of links to information about him at Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
