Hannah Currie is getting a taste of the West Coast this week as one of 75 students chosen to participate in the 10th annual GRAMMY Camp’s Los Angeles program sponsored by the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences.
Currie, who will be a senior this fall at Lawrence Academy in Groton, is spending 10 days immersed in the study of music business on the campus of the University of Southern California. She is the only high school student from Massachusetts selected for this year’s Los Angeles program, which runs through July 21 and culminates with a variety of media projects, recordings and live performances.
In all, 173 students are enrolled in the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences four summer GRAMMY Camps. The camps aim to provide young people with an in-depth experience, giving them a genuine sense of what it’s like to have a career in the music industry. The Los Angeles program focuses on all aspects of commercial music, and is led by industry professionals.
Currie is planning to study and pursue a career in music management following high school.
