Classical Music Month was first celebrated in 1994, initiated by President Bill Clinton, who proposed events dedicated to this timeless music throughout September. The president noted that classical music is perfect for bringing people together, regardless of cultural, geographical, and national differences. It allows us to express emotions and feelings—a melody can truly touch the heart and soul. Classical Music Month helps preserve the rich heritage of composers like Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, and Chopin.
