GRAMMY Museum February 2021 Schedule: Jermaine Dupri, Courtney Marie Andrews & More
The GRAMMY Museum is richer and more profound than ever.
After an extraordinary January programming schedule that included a Verve Label Group takeover and a Cheap Trick digital exhibit, the GRAMMY Museum has announced its lineup for February. It includes new and never-before-released digital content and interviews with and performances by Don Bryant, Winona Oak, Patty Smyth, Peter Frampton, Courtney Marie Andrews, Pat Boone, Marcus King and more.
It’s all part of COLLECTION:live, the Museum’s official online streaming service featuring an artfully curated collection of newly produced artist interviews, performances and livestreams, as well as special releases from the GRAMMY Museum archive.
This month’s programming includes movie discussions featuring Terence Blanchard (for his Original Score for Da 5 Bloods), Celeste and Daniel Pemberton (for their Original Song “Hear My Voice” and Pemberton’s Original Score for The Trial of the Chicago 7), and Branford Marsalis (for his Original Score for Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom). Those will go live on Thurs., Feb. 4.
To celebrate Black History Month, the Museum will also release exclusive archived programs including one with Leon Bridges, a tribute to the great bluesman John Lee Hooker featuring Diane Roan-Hooker and Zakiya Hooker, and a panel discussion with composer Jonathan Kane and sax great Benny Golson revolving around Art Kane’s monumental “Harlem 1958” photograph of 57 jazz musicians.
The month’s programming will crescendo on Fri., Feb. 5, with the release of the virtual exhibit titled Jermaine Dupri & So So Def: 25 Years of Elevating Culture, along with a lively panel featuring Jermaine Dupri and friends.
