This year’s Grammy Camp included guest artists Andy Grammer, Echo Smith, and the War and Treaty who help students prepare for a career in the music industry. The 17 annual Grammy Camp Program selected eight talented high school students from across the country including our very own Ava Lynn Thuresson for the vocal track.

About Grammy Camp
The GRAMMY Foundation was established in 1988 to cultivate the understanding, appreciation and advancement of the contribution of recorded music to American culture. The Foundation accomplishes this mission through programs and activities that engage the music industry and cultural community as well as the general public. The Foundation works in partnership year-round with its founder, The Recording Academy, to bring national attention to important issues such as the value and impact of music and arts education and the urgency of preserving our rich cultural heritage. In recognition of the significant role of teachers in shaping their students’ musical experiences, the GRAMMY Foundation and The Recording Academy partnered to present the first Music Educator AwardTM in 2014. Open to current U.S. music teachers in kindergarten through college, the fourth annual Music Educator Award recipient will be recognized during GRAMMY® Week 2017.
