About the Program
Since opening in 1995 the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has welcomed nearly 12 million visitors and fans from around the world, contributed to the economic vitality of Northeast Ohio with an estimated $2 billion impact, and taught nearly 250,000, pre-K to 12 students in onsite classes. The Museum is undergoing a multi-year dramatic redesign and in April 2018, the Rock and Rock Induction Ceremony will return to Cleveland.

About the Speaker
Greg Harris is in his fifth year as President and CEO of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. As CEO, Harris has guided the organization through an era of unprecedented transformation with a focus on innovation and customer engagement. Under his leadership the Museum has grown attendance dramatically the last three years by executing on a strong strategic plan and focusing on the mission to engage, teach and inspire through the power of rock and roll. Before joining the RRHOF, Harris spent 14 great years as a senior executive at the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown, N.Y., where he advanced from curating the Hall of Fame broadcast collection to serving as vice president of development. Harris's passion for music made the opportunity to shift from baseball to rock and roll possible. In the 1980s, he and a partner founded, owned and operated the legendary Philadelphia Record Exchange, a retail store that specializes in selling rare, used and independent records. The store mirrored and amplified his love of rock, R&B, soul, blues, country, folk and other musical genres. He also served as a road manager for a national touring group and played bad guitar in garage bands. A native of Bucks County, Pennsylvania, Harris holds a B.A. degree in history from Temple University and a master’s degree from the Cooperstown Graduate Program for History and Museum Studies.
