The Rhode Island Music Hall of Fame is a nonprofit dedicated to celebrating, honoring, and preserving the legacy of Rhode Island musicians, educators and industry professional who have made significant contributions to the national and Rhode Island music scene. The Hall will carry out its mission through the annual election of inductees, creation of a museum of artist- and music-related exhibits honoring inductees and commemorating the state's musical legacy, and an online music archive of information about, and audio recordings by, those involved in Rhode Island's past and present music scene.

In addition, the Hall is committed to continuing that legacy by supporting programs and services aimed at promoting and strengthening Rhode Island's current and future music scene and ensuring that music continues to play an important role in the lives of all Rhode Islanders.
