A successful career in the music business is like an iceberg — most people are only aware of one small, dazzling portion or it: the hit single, the catchy video, a platinum album or sold-out concert tour. What's less visible is the huge amount of time and effort that underlies those achievements.
The Chicago Chapter, in partnership with the GRAMMY Foundation, will present GRAMMY Career Day for high school students in the Chicago area on May 17 at Columbia College.
GRAMMY Career Day, a free program for educators and students, is an educational day for high schools students interested in pursuing careers within the music community. This unique program provides an opportunity for students to interact with professionals representing a wide range of careers. The 15-city presentation continues the GRAMMY Foundation's 21-year tradition of introducing high school music students to the diverse career opportunities in the music industry. This year's lineup features forums in Atlanta, Chicago, Los Angeles, Memphis, Miami, New York and Philadelphia, among other cities.
