The Grammy Foundation today announced that it will be bringing back its summer Grammy Camp program to both Los Angeles, where it has been held for the past seven years, and New York, where it debuted last summer, and will this year expand to include a camp in Nashville as well.
The camp -- a 10-day residential program in L.A. and ab 8-day residential program in both New York and Nashville --- is intended to give high school students first-hand training in a number of music industry professions, taught by previous Grammy Award winners and other music business leaders.
"We are extremely excited to bring Grammy Camp to three dynamic music markets in the summer of 2012, and provide this valuable experience to the next generation of music makers," said Neil Portnow, President and CEO of The Recording Academy and the Grammy Foundation, in a statement.
Grammy Camp Nashville will be held June 17-24 at Black River Entertainment; the L.A. program will be held from July 14-23 at the University of Southern California Thornton School of Music; and the New York camp will be at Converse Rubber Tracks in Brooklyn August 6-13. Applications are live now until March 31.
