She attended the Mozart Society of America’s first international conference there and joined their campaign to save the Villa Bertramka and secure its designation as a National Cultural Landmark. 

“It’s fantastic to see that Sherry’s dedication to preserving such important musical heritage, encompassing places linked to rock and roll legends such as the Everly Brothers and Buddy Holly, has been featured in Vintage Rock magazine and will receive wider recognition.
