Starr Gennett Foundation

You can expect knowledge plus tunes programs for people.

The Starr-Gennett Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to protecting, promoting and celebrating the legacy of Gennett Records and its parent company, Starr Piano Company. Since 1991, the foundation has been committed to preserving this important heritage and promoting the world’s appreciation of this extraordinary history of American pop music. Richmond has a long history, combining jazz, architecture and education into a unique city. We hold various events and concerts throughout the year to teach music history to young and older students. People came to Richmond from all directions to attend the Historic Avenue of Celebrities Festival in September.
