The Music Hall of Fame, located on the N.C. Research Campus, has assigned Quick Response, or QR, bar codes to every exhibit in the museum to provide visitors greater access to the music and history of the more than three dozen current inductees.
The QR code format enables those with smart phones to access each inducteeís biography and listen to and view their videos and concerts. Smart phones will require downloading the free application, Scan Life Barcode Reader.
The museum also provides laminated sheets with all the exhibit bar codes so visitors can listen and view the information and music after theyíve left the museum.
The museum is located at 109 West A Street in Kannapolis. It is open free to the public from 10 a.m. to noon and 1 to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday and on weekends by appointment.
Photographs of the exhibits and a complete list of the inductees are available on the North Carolina Music Hall Of Fame website, northcarolinamusichalloffame.org/ .
Rowan Regional Medical Center in Salisbury and Hanes Brands of Winston-Salem are the first major corporate sponsors of the N.C. Music Hall of Fame induction ceremony.
