Undertaking the biggest transformation in its 21-year history, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame has received a historic $9 million donation from Chris and Sara Connor to create the Connor Theater. When it opens this summer, the theater will house an epic signature experience featuring arena-quality sound, larger-than-life video screens and fan interactivity that will bring audiences closer to their favorite artists than ever before. Connor is the chair of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame board of directors and the executive chairman of the Sherwin-Williams company.
“This is an incredible time for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, and I am honored to be involved with what I truly see as a transformative project,” Connor said. “Greg Harris and his team have created an ambitious plan to evolve the Rock Hall experience and ensure that it continues to thrive. The Rock Hall is a hallmark in our community, an economic engine and the foundation of the Cleveland brand worldwide. I view this as an important investment in the vision of the Rock Hall and our community. I hope this gift inspires others to join me in creating the best rock and roll experience in the world.”
