Music is the soul of Memphis: Birthplace of Rock’n’Roll and Blues; Home of Sun Records, Gibson Guitars and Stax Records…and Elvis. For more than 150 years, the rhythms of Memphis musicians have spilled from clubs and bars out onto historic Beale Street, which forms the cultural backbone of our city. Only such a music-minded metropolis could have given rise to EgglestonWorks.
More than a quarter-century ago, a group of obsessed craftsmen started building artistically designed, one-of-a-kind pieces of furniture for collectors. Perhaps inevitably, their love of art and music inspired the company to create loudspeakers, which combined the highest possible audio performance with unrivalled aesthetic beauty. In 1997, EgglestonWorks introduced the Andra, which was immediately embraced by recording engineers and music lovers around the world and praised as one of the finest speakers ever produced. So impressive was Andra that it appeared on the cover of prestigious Stereophile magazine TWICE in three months and won that publication’s “Loudspeaker of the Year” award.
Young Arts Patrons members will head to Egglestonworks to discover the ways these beautiful speakers have propelled sound and music forward in the industry!
Wine and Beer Provided.
