The Central Catholic High School Music Hall of Fame

The idea for a Music Hall of Fame came from a conversation among three Central Catholic parents while serving at a Glee Club fundraising dinner. The question was asked, “Why doesn’t Central Catholic have a hall of fame for their music department when they have one for their athletic department?” It was suggested that at the next year’s fundraiser, an honoree be inducted into the newly created Music Hall of Fame. Jerry DePrisco ’45 was, without a doubt, the number one nominee for becoming the first inductee.

The nominating committee is responsible for honoring alumni, directors, instructors, parents, and friends who have in some way been affiliated with Central Catholic’s rich tradition of music in the community.
