In response to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many music venues and organizations have reverted to online music programming and livestreamed performances. With the closure of the GRAMMY Museum in downtown Los Angeles, the museum has announced that it will debut never-before-seen digital Public Programs from the GRAMMY Museum archives.
Featuring over 900 entries, the Public Programs catalog includes sit-down interviews and performances with musicians in the museum’s 200-seat Clive Davis Theater. So far, the museum has released Public Programs from X Ambassadors, Bob Newhart, Yola, Brandi Carlile, Larkin Poe, and Scarypoolparty. Going into April, the museum will release conversations with Billie Eilish and FINNEAS, Kool & The Gang, and Greta Van Fleet. Find the full list of Public Programs here.
"At the GRAMMY Museum, we believe that music has the power to bring us together, strengthen our sense of community and drive us forward – especially in times when it feels like we are being pulled apart. We believe at its core, everything that we do is to better our community through music,” said Michael Sticka, GRAMMY Museum President. With these programs, we hope that people will find solace and inspiration."
In addition to the release of the Public Programs, the GRAMMY Museum will also release exhibit slideshows of past exhibitions. The slideshows will include images of installations, playlists, and media content featured in each exhibit. Exhibits featured so far include, “X: 40 Years Of Punk in Los Angeles” and “Take Me Out to the Ball Game: Popular Music and the National Pastime.” The museum will also release archived music education content including lessons, further contributing to the museum’s mission of celebrating and understanding the history of recorded music.
