slow I’m John Gray, the director of the National
Museum of American History and I am in the being-built Hall of Music. Music is the way we express our own
identity. It’s how Americans understand, and how we grow. This extraordinary music hall will house
our chamber music program, our jazz program, our roots of American music program. Literally our visitors are going to hear
the global world that we know of as American music. We really want everybody to come into your National Museum of
American History. Come into this Hall of Music and listen to
the sounds of America. Understand our history and simply enjoy it.
