Happy Beethoven's Birthday!
Today is a date writ large not only in musical and cultural history, but also in the lore of the Peanuts comic strip. As pint-size piano virtuoso Schroeder would be the first to tell you, Ludwig Van Beethoven was born on this date in 1770. To celebrate the great composer and his role in the world of Peanuts, the Charles M. Schulz Museum and Research Center is holding a special exhibit. Schulz's Beethoven: Schroeder's Muse will run at the Museum through January 26, 2009. You can learn more about the exhibit at the Schulz Museum's website.
