But I don’t think I ever knew about the American Classical Music Hall of Fame and Museum (a photo of its exterior is below) – or if I did, I had forgotten about it.
Maybe classical music isn’t as moribund or unpopular or outdated as we are being led to believe!
Anyway, here is a link to a story about the American Classical Music Hall of Fame and Museum (a photo of its interior is below). It also features special and permanent exhibits, and is located in Cincinnati, Ohio. You can find an impressive list of the distinguished inductees going back to 1998 in the hall’s Wikipedia entry.
Sure sounds like I’ll have to add this institution as a MUST-SEE if I ever visit Cincinnati.
Some of the names of the eight new inductees should be quite familiar to you. Anyone care to guess at them?
How many have you heard live? Recorded?
How many have you hear about and how many are unfamiliar to you?
What names would you nominate for induction next year?
Read the story – here’s a link to the museum’s website:
And here is a link to a story about this year’s gala induction ceremony, with too many photos of patrons and too few photos of the artists.
Then let us know what you think in the COMMENT section.
