Eight-time GRAMMY® Award winner Barbra Streisand will be visiting the Clive Davis Theater for an intimate conversation that will benefit the GRAMMY Museum at L.A. LIVE's educational programs, of which served a record 29,000 students in 2016. These educational programs include after-school workshops, tours of the museum, and conversations with both music industry professionals and artists.
The conversation will be on Jan. 5 and will be the GRAMMY Museum's first program in 2017. "A Conversation with Barbra Streisand" will be presented by American Express and will be moderated by GRAMMY Museum Executive Director Bob Santelli. The intimate conversation with Streisand will focus on her versatile career as an award-winning singer, actress, director, writer, composer, producer, designer, and author.
“It is such an honor to kick off our 2017 public programs series with the extraordinary Barbra Streisand,” said Santelli. “When it comes to success in music and entertainment, Barbra has done it all and I can honestly say that no one has done it better than her. We are thrilled to host her for what will surely be an unforgettable evening, and one the GRAMMY Museum will reap the benefits of for a long time to come as the proceeds from each ticket sale will go directly toward doing what we do best: bringing music education to young people throughout Los Angeles.”
“When you think about a GRAMMY Legend, Barbra Streisand immediately comes to mind,” said Neil Portnow, President/CEO of The Recording Academy® and Chair of the Board of the GRAMMY Museum. “Nominated for a GRAMMY again this year, she's one of only 15 artists to have received our GRAMMY Legend award; she's received the prestigious MusiCares Person of the Year title; and she's a Lifetime Achievement Award recipient. Add to that the numerous other awards she's received, and her talent and contribution to the entertainment community overall is unmatched. I personally couldn't be more excited about this evening.”
Tickets for "A Conversation With Barbra Streisand" range from $250 and $100 and went on-sale to American Express cardholders and GRAMMY Museum members on Dec. 22. Tickets go on sale to the general public beginning on Dec. 29 and can be purchased at AXS.com. All proceeds will benefit the education initiatives of the GRAMMY Museum.
