Talented High Schoolers Chosen For 2018 GRAMMY Camp Los Angeles
Coming from 24 states around the country, the 88 high school student selectees for 2018 GRAMMY Camp Los Angeles were announced by the GRAMMY Museum on May 18. This year is the 14th annual GRAMMY Camp event and will be held from July 17–21 in Los Angeles, centered at the University of Southern California Thornton School of Music.
The program organizes its talented, non-residential campers into tracks based on individual interests. These are Audio Engineering, Electronic Music Production, Music Business, Music Journalism, Performance — Instrumental, Performance — Vocal, Songwriting, and Video Production & Motion Graphics.
"GRAMMY Camp is one of the most immersive summer camps for high school students interested in a career in music," said Neil Portnow, President/CEO of the Recording Academy and Chair of the GRAMMY Museum Board. "The program gives young people the opportunity to study with music industry professionals — including some GRAMMY-winning creators — and to collaborate with their peers, resulting in a genuine learning experience about life in the music industry."
This year's GRAMMY Camp Los Angeles is a GRAMMY in the Schools program presented by the Hot Topic Foundation with program support provided by the Bruno Mars Scholarship Fund, the Ella Fitzgerald Charitable Fund, and the Recording Academy.
