The LIBRARY OF CONGRESS and the COUNTRY MUSIC ASSOCIATION (CMA) have announced a day-long program for the CMA BOARD OF DIRECTORS at the nation’s library on TUESDAY (3/9) in WASHINGTON, D.C.
The day’s events will include a comprehensive tour of the historic JEFFERSON BUILDING, an extensive orientation to the LIBRARY’s music, sound recording and folk collections focusing on Country music, and a concert in the COOLIDGE AUDITORIUM from KIX BROOKS, LORRIE MORGAN, JOHN RICH, VICTORIA SHAW and BOB DiPIERO.
The purpose of this day will be to build on the LIBRARY’s collections of sound recordings, moving image and printed music in the Country music genre, and to further the LIBRARY’s goal of maximizing access and awareness of its collections to music scholars and music lovers around the world.
The CMA will commemorate the event by donating a leather-bound DVD collection of four decades of CMA AWARDS broadcasts, anniversary television specials and the annual “CMA MUSIC FESTIVAL: Country’s Night To Rock” TV special.
