Sennheiser Sponsors Nashville's Musicians Hall of Fame & Museum
Jul 5, 2006 1:08 PM
Sennheiser Electronic Corporation is the official sponsor of the Musicians Hall of Fame & Museum, which celebrates the essential contributions made by generations of talented musicians in all genres of music. The company has outfitted the complex with a new Turbosound Aspect TA-500 speaker system together, with a broad selection of Neumann and Sennheiser microphones for the performance space. In addition, Turbosound TCS Contractor Series ceiling speakers and an Australian Monitor multi-zone paging system for the screening theater and exhibit areas were included in the install.
The multi-million dollar Musicians Hall of Fame & Museum is the brainchild of Nashville songwriter Joe Chambers, who also owns a chain of guitar stores in the area. The 30,000 square-foot complex, located in downtown Nashville close by the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, the Gaylord Entertainment Center and Ryman Auditorium, includes a 5,000 square-foot performance hall, a 1,100 square-foot screening theater, music instruction rooms, and a state-of-the-art recording studio.
The museum's exhibits will showcase instruments and artifacts of many of the most respected, talented, and influential musicians of our time. Chambers has collected artifacts from rock, soul and pop history, making equal space for Detroit, Memphis, Los Angeles, and New York. Chambers also plans to begin a school of music with donated instruments and professional instructors that will be aimed at helping under-privileged, school-age children receive free lessons.
