QT: chapter about & blog


The Nashville Chapter received its charter from The Recording Academy in 1964. Today, the Chapter has grown to include more than 2,200 members. In 1997, the Chapter moved into a beautiful 5,000-square foot refurbished home adjacent to Music Row, the first property to be purchased by The Recording Academy outside of the national office in Santa Monica, Calif.

Already known for its continuing professional education and industry networking efforts, the Nashville Chapter produces an expansive program of professional services to meet the needs of the local music community. These range from professional education panels featuring top level music industry experts, to the GRAMMY Awards Telecast Viewing Party and the Chapter's annual GRAMMY Block Party and Membership Celebration.

Involvement in advancing music and arts-based education programs is also very important to the Nashville Chapter. Through work with the GRAMMY Foundation, the Nashville Chapter presents GRAMMY Career Day as well as other local outreach programs that focus on all levels and aspects of music education.

The Nashville Chapter boasts a very active GRAMMY U membership with students representing local colleges and universities. Students have the opportunity to participate in various programs that connect them to the local music community.
