    I don't know if anyone will see this, but...

    http://www.classical.net/music/composer/dates/comp1.php

    This is a really good list of composers' birthdays. Announce birthdays for commemoration!

    Could someone actually make this link a sticky in itself? I think a lot of people would like to see it.

    Thank you!

    That website has all sorts of other statistics, including death dates.

    It's a great list, but I can see a few that are missing: Samuel Adler, March 4th (my own birthday), Eugene Ysaye, July 16th (my brother's), Steve Reich, October 3rd (my sister's). I wonder if it is possible to contact the site and have them added.

    Pretty much every composer born in the past hundred years is omitted! And those that are on the list are mostly pretty obscure C20 Americans.
