Welcome and thank you for visiting our website.
This is a time of tremendous excitement and progress for the Long Island Music Hall of Fame as we celebrate, recognize and preserve the exceptional music heritage of Long Island and our commitment to supporting music education.
This past year we presented four scholarships to deserving Long Island High School seniors; selected our tenth Educator of Note; presented lectures, panel discussions, and a Music Education Speakers Series with industry leaders from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Rock and Roll Forever Foundation, and some of our esteemed board members; we were present across Long Island at music events and festivals; we produced our first Summer Concert Series, and presented our first Holiday concert with an instrument drive to support local schools. We also launched the first Long Island High School Music Recognition Program, honoring school districts for their devotion to music students across the island.
Possibly the most exciting new development is our Music Education Mobile Museum and “Tour Bus”. This educational museum on wheels is being designed to showcase Long Island’s musical heritage, and will feature interactive displays and state of the art technology to showcase the Long Island’s diversity of talent in virtually all musical genres. It will be visiting schools, events, museums, and other places of interest beginning in the summer of 2017. And of course we look forward to opening our first museum in the near future.
Most recently, we held our Sixth Induction Awards Ceremony & Gala, a night where we honored many of the talented musicians and industry professionals that have had the pleasure of calling Long Island their home. I congratulate each of them for their contribution to Long Island’s musical legacy.
Of course, none of this would be possible without the support and dedication of our board of directors, as well as our generous donors. I thank each of them for their tireless devotion to making the Long Island Music Hall of Fame the premier music organization on Long Island.
As you can see, the anticipation of what is to come is incredible and we hope you will join us along the way. Please consider becoming a member or sponsor of the Long Island Music Hall of Fame and support a non-profit like no other. Thank you for your interest and I hope to see you soon.
