This costume theme is also a little broader, so that it includes famous composers ( Wear a Georgian style costume for Mozart), and what ablout going as a conductor (an easy costume, just wear a tailsuit and hold a baton – or wand, if you have nothing else to hand).
You can still take your costume inspiration from Rock and pop stars, Musical Films, Musicals as well as composersand famous classical musicians, so it really is a broad theme that will give you plenty of costume choices. Take a look at some of our music star costumes to get some more fancy dress ideas.
An auspicious day for music, as on this date in 1986, the newly opened Rock N Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio, inducts its first artists. These included James Brown, Little Richard, Elvis Presley, Fats Domino, Ray Charles, Chuck Berry and, as mentioned yesterday, Sam Cooke. Since then many others have been added to their number, as a handful of artists are added each year as a result of voting by their peers (the public are not allowed to vote!)
If the list looks a little American orientated, it is and this caused controversy in 2007, when it was discovered that the induction voting had been rigged to allow Grandmaster Flash (of the US) in, as opposed to the UK’s Dave Clark Five. This wrong was righted the following year. In addition to the ‘stars’, the Hall is equally keen to honour others in the music business from ‘back-room techies’ to DJs, and those who contribute to music as session musicians and ‘sidemen’ (and women). So, today our theme is Music Stars.
