U of M's Music Advisory Council
March 25, 2005
University of Memphis and its Rudi E. Scheidt School of Music are
very happy to have Scotty Moore as an Honorary Member of the newly
formed School of Music Advisory Council. We approached Mr. Moore about
this in August 2004, following one of his appearances in Memphis. He has graciously
joined this group of luminaries including
Booker T. Jones (of Booker T.
and the MGs), David Porter, George Klein, opera greats Marguerite Piazza
and Mignon Dunn,
Cybill Shepherd and others as the School embarks upon a
campaign to create a state of the art performing arts center and school
of music facility. Honorary council members will "spread the word"
about the hidden gem that is the U of M's music school. The
Council will gather for a kick-off event later this spring.
Mr. Moore was also the 1999 recipient of our College of Communication
and Fine Arts' "Distinguished Achievement in the Creative and Performing
Arts Award". This is an annual award given by the College since
1979 in memory of Elvis Presley and received by such important
contributors to the arts as Sam
Phillips, J.D. Sumner, Chet
Atkins, B B King, Al Green,
Isaac Hayes, Jerry Lee
Lewis and others.
