WHY:             Protecting
our cultural legacy for future generations is a cornerstone of the
GRAMMY Foundation mission. The Foundation recognizes and celebrates the
innovation, perseverance and genius evidenced in the stories and music
of the pioneers who have woven a rich and colorful cultural fabric. The
GRAMMY Foundation Music Preservation Project highlights its year-round
activities in support of that mission, from preservation grants to its
Living Histories archive. The Project also draws the attention of a
wider audience to those efforts, and to the imperiled condition of many
of the most historically significant recordings.
This
concert and screening serves to reintroduce works from these major
contributors to the public and educates them about the GRAMMY
Foundation’s role in preserving our rich cultural heritage.
