Sculptor Architect Gian Lorenzo Bernini Birthday

What happened on December 7?

Italian architect Gian Lorenzo Bernini (*1598) constructed the party for this musical day.

The Royal Opera House opens at Covent Garden in London in 1732.
And the New York Philharmonic orchestra, founded by Ureli Corelli Hill, performed its first concert on this day in 1842.

Also great to know is the fact that none other than social media celebrity Dan Bilzerian (*1980) prepared the festive poker table and balloons. Tom Waits (*1949) sings a song whilst we wait for the rest of the celebration crew to arrive.

And wow, there they are. Out of the blue!
What a classic entreé by magician Jean Eugène Robert-Houdin (*1871).
Even linguist Noam Chomsky (*1928) is lost for words.

Scottish poet Allan Cunningham (*1784) and writer Willa Cather (*1873) wrote today’s invitations and according to actor Jeffrey Wright (*1965), they got them right.
