Arthur Fiedler was born in Massachusetts on this day in 1894. His father was a violinist and his mother a pianist. In other words, he was probably listening to music from a very early age.
In 1930, he became the conductor of The Boston Pops. His obituary said it all:
For more than half a century, Arthur Fiedler and the Boston Pops Orchestra were joined in a musical union that, through concerts, recordings, radio broadcasts and television programs, brought untold musical pleasure to millions of Americans.
Indeed he did. I recall watching many of h is performances with my father who loved his musical arrangements.
