And here we are again, back with a new look and new energy. We hope you like it as much as we do. You’ll find information about all of our inductees to date, our education projects, including the launch of our $10,000 scholarship initiative and the announcement of our 2013 Music Educator of Note , a bit about our past, and a new blog that will give you deeper insights into our inductees and the world of music here on our Island and beyond.
As far as the future, we’ve started planning our Fall 2014 Gala. If you’ve been to any of our first four events you know how spectacular they’ve been, and how each one keeps getting better. So, having set that high bar for ourselves, we’ve got some work to do. Keep an eye on this site and our Facebook page for announcements of location, honorees, attendees, tickets, etc.
We are also looking at several possible sites for our museum home. It’s nice to be wanted, and we’re grateful to everyone who has come to us with ideas. In addition we’re pursuing a mobile museum project that would take the story of Long Island’s music to schools and events from Brooklyn to Montauk. And, we’ve created a new award (we’ll come up with a clever name for it, trust us!) to honor the sidemen and sidewomen in music – those who may not be stars, but without whom the music business doesn’t work nearly as well.
So, there’s a lot happening here. If you have questions or suggestions, let us know. We’re always glad to hear from you!
