Fox Music House marked 90 years with a grand opening celebration at their new location on Dorchester Rd. The program featured a ribbon cutting and remarks from N. Charleston Mayor Keith Summey, Charleston Mayor John Tecklenburg, Fox Music's Charles, Fox Music's Joan Fox, and Fox Music's Joseph Fox, as well as a prayer and welcoming by Brith Shalom Beth Israel Rabbi Moshe Davis.
The beautiful new location features nearly 22,000 square feet of sales floor with Yamaha, Seiler, and Steinway and more than 110 new and used pianos and organs. A space is also designated for events with staging/production, a recording studio, and nine teaching rooms operated by Black Tie Music Academy. Fox Music House will officially be the oldest & largest Yamaha retail storefront on the East Coast.
Fox Music House is one of only a few businesses to be recognized for outstanding achievement and contributions in the arts in South Carolina. S.C. Arts Commission designated the Elizabeth O'Neill Verner Award, the highest honor the state awards in the arts, to the family-owned business in 2013. A pillar in the community since before the Great Depression, four generations of the Fox family are actively involved in the music retail store and were in attendance for the Grand Opening.
