ABOUT THE VENKMAN PRIZE
by Dan Aykroyd
In 1984, a talented, promising young cellist, Dana Barrett, almost had her illustrious career as a classical musician cut short when she was haunted by the demonic spirit, Zuul, a demigod worshipped as a servant to Gozer the Gozerian, a shape-shifting Sumerian god of destruction and chaos.
Had it not been for the efforts of parapsycholgists Peter Venkman, Raymond Stantz, Egon Spengler and Winston Zeddemore , Dana Barrett's career and life might have been over.
The international community of symphonic musicians recognized the four through the creation of the Venkman Prize, which remains the greatest award ever given in the history of classical music.**
Since 1984, orchestras throughout the world have enjoyed paranormal-free concerts. That is...until now.
