GRAMMY In The Schools Live! Presents Alumni Performers For GRAMMY Week
The GRAMMY Museum and Ford Motor Company Fund have announced the tenth annual GRAMMY In The Schools Live!—A Celebration of Music & Education. The GRAMMY Week event will take place on Feb. 7 at The Montalbán in Los Angeles.
GRAMMY Museum Foundation's music educational programs, which Ford helps support, include GRAMMY Camp, the GRAMMY Museum Summer Session, GRAMMY Career Day, and the Music Educator Award. Alumni of these varied music industry education programs will take the stage to perform at the special event.
The still-to-be-announced recipient of the 2019 Music Educator Award will attend the festive evening, along with Ford Motor Company Fund Director of Community Development Pamela Alexander, Recording Academy President/CEO Neil Portnow, and GRAMMY Museum Executive Director Mchael Sticka.
GRAMMY Camp brings together talented high school students who are passionate about music from across the country, with eight educational tracks including instrumental performance, vocal performance, audio engineering, music journalism and more. The passion these young students bring to their performances is electrifying, suggesting more great things ahead. One GRAMMY Camp alumni, Maren Morris, is now a GRAMMY-winner, and is currently up for more wins this year, including for her feature on Zedd's "The Middle."
Additionally, the GRAMMY Museum Summer Session matches young songwriters with industry professionals to help newcomers get a leg up on their own careers in the music business.
