Their generous support helps us deliver experiences that enrich Cleveland’s cultural vibrancy and amplifying the power of rock & roll.”
Rock Hall Live! Powered by PNC is one of several important community engagement and educational initiatives, supported by PNC Bank and the PNC Foundation under a multi-year sponsorship.
“We know a thriving arts scene is critical to the long-term economic vitality of our communities,” said Pat Pastore, PNC regional president for Cleveland. “Our relationship with the Rock Hall builds upon PNC’s legacy of investing in cultural vibrancy and advocating for engagement in the arts more broadly as powerful avenues for advancing education, diversity and inclusion and economic development. Rock and roll is about energy, excitement and celebration. We look forward to sharing all of that and more with the community on the PNC Stage this summer.”
Weekend parties get started on Thursday evenings with free Happy Hours and Live & Local shows featuring homegrown talent. In July and August, enjoy Friday night concerts with nationally touring artists. Lunch By the Lake acoustic sets return on select Thursday through Sunday afternoons and include Beatles Fridays with cover songs and trivia amplifying the Museum’s Let It Be exhibit.
