Grammy Museum to Host Free Student Showcase

The GRAMMY Museum® has announced a new program designed to offer high school students an opportunity to showcase their musical talents on stage at the GRAMMY Museum. High school musical acts from the Los Angeles and Southern California area from a variety of genres, including solo performers, bands, and groups, will perform in the Museum’s award-winning Clive Davis Theater. This inaugural program is made possible thanks to the generous support of The Kenneth T. and Eileen L. Norris Foundation.

Ahead of the actual showcase, students will participate in panel discussions focusing on careers in music, content creation, and stage presence, as well as receive real time feedback from industry professionals during rehearsals. Participants will also work with the Museum’s production team to understand what it takes to produce a live event, including staging, lighting direction, managing the soundboard, and video production. 

The Student Showcase Finale will be free, open to the public, and livestreamed to reach a wider audience and allow performers to promote their music. In addition, participants will receive their performance footage for their social media channels and get tips on content creation and branding. The program will kick off the Museum’s GRAMMY® Week 2024 programming.
