Freshman plays cello on radio

Maximus Gurath chosen for Minnesota Public Radio Showcase

By Mallory Junso He may still be a freshman, but orchestra member Maximus Gurath has already proven himself a talented musician and Warrior. Gurath was recently one of five musicians to play on Minnesota Public Radio (MPR) in their Showcase Concert Sunday. Gurath said it was an honor to be chosen. “I love to perform,” Gurath said. “It not only connects me with my wonderful instrument, but it also connects me with Feature other people listening. It’s like I’m having the most intimate and satisfying conversation ever. And, I’m connecting with hundreds of years of music. That’s really special to me.” Gurath began playing cello at the age of 4, studying with Maxim Koslov for six years until he moved to Baltimore. Under Koslov’s direction, Gurath flourished, quickly moving into advanced high school repertoire by the age of 7. At age 8 he began performing with the S.D. Symphony Youth Orchestra. He won the concerto competition with them at the age of 12.

In 2014 Gurath took first place in the cello division of the Lucy Weed String competition where he had to memorize and perform three pieces. In 2014, he won the S.D. Symphony Young Musician’s competition, performing Boccherini’s B flat cello concerto with the S.D. Symphony Orchestra at three of their holiday concerts in December of that year. In 2015, he won the concerto competition at the Interlochen Music and Art competition. Last summer, Gurath compeated against musicians from all over the U.S. and was flown to New York City where he performed in Carnegie Hall as an orchestra member and in Philadelphia at the Kimmel Center with guest artist Esperanza Spalding. Gurath was also the principal cellist of the South Dakota AllState Orchestra in October and the principal cellist of the South Dakota Honors Orchestra in Rapid City in February. Gurath was one of 10 to be invited to make a professional recording of his piece at the MPR studios, and one of five to advance to the Showcase Concert at Ted Man Hall in Minneapolis on Mother’s Day.

He performed the first five movements of Tchaikovsky’s Rococo Variations. “It was a new experience in the way that it was broadcast live on the radio,” Gurath said. “It was a great performance opportunity on the best known classics station in the midwest.”

Government heads to D.C. today in 1800 (MCT) On May 15, 1800, President John Adams ordered the federal government to pack up and leave Philadelphia and set up shop in the nation’s new capital in Washington, D.C. After Congress adjourned its last meeting in Philadelphia on May 15, Adams told his cabinet to make sure Congress and all federal offices were up and running smoothly in their new headquarters by June 15, 1800. Philadelphia officially ceased to serve as the nation’s capital as of June 11, 1800. At the time, there were only about 125 federal employees. Official documents and archives were transferred from Philadelphia to the new capital by ship over inland waterways.

Our History President and Mrs. Adams did not move in to the (unfinished) president’s mansion until November of that year. Settling in to the White House was a challenge for the new first lady. In December, Abigail Adams wrote to a friend later she had to line-dry their clothes in what eventually became the East Room. Philadelphia was not the only capital of the U.S. before Washington. As British troops closed in on the city at the end of 1776, the Continental Congress decided to abandon the city and flee south to the safer haven of Baltimore. Bypassing the city’s old courthouse, delegates instead convened on Dec. 20, 1776, inside the spacious house and tavern of Henry Fite. The three-story brick building, redubbed “Congress Hall,” was among the largest in Baltimore and outside the possible artillery range of the British navy. There, delegates learned of Washington’s crossing of the Delaware River and his surprise victories at Trenton and Princeton.
