U of M's Music Advisory Council

March 25, 2005

The 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, Carl Perkins, Isaac Hayes, Jerry Lee Lewis and others.
