    Music News: Henry Steinway Named Medal of Arts Recipient

    Former Steinway president Henry Z. Steinway is among nine 2007 recipients of the National Medal of Arts.

    On Nov. 14, President George W. Bush announced the recipients of the awards, which were presented by the President and Laura Bush in a ceremony at the White House. The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) manages the National Medal of Arts nomination process and notified the artists of their selection.

    In addition to Steinway the 2007 National Medal of Arts Recipients are: Les Paul, Morten Lauridsen, composer; N. Scott Momaday, author, essayist, poet, professor, painter; Roy R. Neuberger, arts patron; R. Craig Noel, Old Globe Theatre director; George Tooker, painter; the University of Idaho Lionel Hampton International Jazz Festival, music competition and festival; and Andrew Wyeth, painter.

    Also receiving an award from the President was Erich Kunzel, conductor of the Cincinnati Pops Orchestra and a 2006 National Medal of Arts recipient who was not able to attend last year’s event.

    An honor richly deserved!

    Henry Z. Steinway is one of those fellows I would have
    loved to have met along the way, but never have.

    Mostly just to say... thank you, sir.
