Terry Stewart, former director of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame to speak at Fall Forum Luncheon

Friday, October 26, 2018              Hilton Netherland Plaza                 Hall of Mirrors

Mark your calendar for this year’s exciting forum focusing on the preservation of culture and music in Cincinnati by acknowledging the importance of  King Records.

Cincinnati Preservation Association’s Fall Forum has earned a reputation as one of the region’s most engaging and informative annual events.  Your support and sponsorship are an important part of the ongoing discussion of how Cincinnati can continue to use its historic resources to make a great city.

This year we are focusing on the bigger picture that preservation plays in our culture.  Nothing affects our way of life quite like music,   and Cincinnati has the unique privilege of being home to the iconic King Records. CPA is supporting the city’s efforts to save the recording studio building in Evanston.  King signed some of the biggest names in popular music and recorded well over four hundred hit songs there. With stars from James Brown to the Stanley Brothers and its innovative, integrated business model, King revolutionized the music industry.

Who better to talk about the culture of rhythm and blues, rockabilly, funk and bluegrass than the former director of the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame?  Terry Stewart, now executive director of El Dorado Festivals will share his excitement about this cultural preservation that tells the story of how Cincinnatians came together to make music.
