Jordan Kitt’s Music was the proud supplier of the Bösendorfer concert grand to the Congressional Gold Medal Ceremony for 1965 Voting Rights Marches Foot Soldiers. 2015 marked the 50th anniversary of the 1965 Civil Rights Selma marches that motivated the Voting Rights Act of 1965. In commemoration of the protestors, or “foot soldiers,” the Office of the Speaker of the House of Representatives held a Congressional Gold Medal Ceremony to congratulate Civil Rights Activist Frederick D. Reese. The Congressional Gold Medal is the highest honor for civilians.
