    I jumped the gun the other day. Raymond has submitted a quiz for us. And boy, is it a doozy! I’ve been laughing (and groaning) for half an hour as I read through it. I put it up here on a separate thread because it may get lost in the other thread.

    There are eleven categories of questions. Here is an example of the questions and answers:
    A – FELINE
    1. Name some composers with feline tendencies. Answer: Kat-chaturian, Milhaud (pronounced “meeoh”), De Pussy, etc….there are more.


    E – COLDS
    1. What composers have colds? Answer: Tchai-cough-ski.

    So now you get the picture. Get that creative mind turned on full blast and see if you can come with more answers. I have all the answers, so will not play, but I’ll help Raymond run this if he wants and put up answers as we go along.

    I forgot to add two things:

    (1)- Jaque Often-Bark made things even more canine by writing a Bark-arole

    (2)- Thers is a pianist who is most canine when he is at home. Do you know who that is? It is Wilhelm Bark-house.
