Happy birthday to Wolfgang Amadeaus Mozart, born today in 1756 in Salzburg. If you're reading this, odds are you're not in Austria at the big celebrations. And locally, well, things are a lot more low-key. The LA Chamber Orchestra will perform all of Mozart's piano concertos — it will take a while, and their big shindig won't be until Saturday. If you're booked, on Tuesday head to the Pacific Palisades for a smaller chamber music concert. But if you want to feel the pulse of international Mozart adulation, tune in to KUSC 91.5 for all Mozart all day long.

With all this ado, we want to pay special attention to those in the public eye who share this birthday with Wolfgang and may be feeling a bit overlooked. Happy birthday to Bridget Fonda, James Cromwell, Troy Donahue, Mikhail Baryshnikov, Tricky, singer Mike Patton, comedian Patton Oswalt, and comic book genius Frank Miller. And if it's your birthday, happy birthday to you, too!
