Besides Watts, they are composer Aaron Jay Kernis, educator and conductor Weston Noble, the American Guild of Organists and the Guarneri Quartet. Founded in 1996, The American Classical Music Hall of Fame seeks to build and sustain enthusiasm for classical music in America by celebrating diverse facets of classical music excellence.
