In the profile about Rhodes, Billboard also mentions the Audubon Sessions, which is a student-produced concert series held at 1034 Audubon Drive, Elvis Presley’s first purchased home in Memphis. The Mike Curb Family Foundation bought the house and established it as part of the Curb Institute. Curb fellows also produce the on-campus music festival Respect Fest and the Beyond Beale podcast and Dredge zine, which spotlight the Memphis music scene.
Through the Curb Institute, students have obtained the experience and credentials to benefit them as they make the transition from college to graduate school or the professional world in a variety of fields.
