Lorenz Turns 125

Dayton, Ohio - Aug 19th, 2015

The Lorenz Corporation has the privilege of celebrating a momentous occasion this year—the 125th anniversary of its founding. The publishing company, located in Dayton, OH, was established in 1890 by Edmund S. Lorenz, great-great grandfather of the current CEO, Reiff Lorenz.

From choir and classroom music to pieces for handbells, keyboard, and instruments, Lorenz has always taken great pride in providing a vast array of selections to musicians in a wide variety of settings. And, while much has changed in music and in the world since Lorenz published their first choral anthems in the late nineteenth century, Lorenz’s dedication to serving the talented people who bring music into their churches, schools, and communities has not. This service continues to be both the company’s mission and their passion, and it will be precisely what leads them into the next 125 years!

To help celebrate this significant anniversary year and in observance of National Manufacturing Day, Lorenz will invite the community into its facilities on October 2, 2015 to provide an inside look into music publishing. Further details will be announced in September. For more information about National Manufacturing Day, click on the link below.
