September is Classical Music Month

Celebration of Classical Music Month started in 1994 by President Bill Clinton, who declared every September as Classical Music Month. His proclamation stated, “Classical music is a celebration of artistic excellence… This month we exalt the many talented composers, conductors, and musicians who bring classical music to our ears… Music is a unifying force in our world, bringing people together across vast cultural and geographical divisions.”

Music is a powerful medium, expressing emotion and touching hearts unlike anything else. Famous musicians like Mozart, Beethoven, and Haydn are some of the legendary composers who gifted us classical music. This wide-ranging genre uses multiple instruments for playing a single melody, giving a powerful sound that has transcended over time.

It is important to celebrate Classical Music Month to preserve the legacies of great musicians and introduce this genre to new audiences. Whether it is rock, jazz, or country music, the inspiration and roots will always be connected to classical music somehow.
