In the week leading up to the The 54th Annual GRAMMY® Awards, The Grammy® Museum will host a variety of activities intended to introduce people to the wide array of musical genres represented by the GRAMMY® Awards. In addition to hosting several public programs, the Museum will also welcome local students each morning to experience the excitement of GRAMMY® Week 2012 with its popular Backstage Pass Series.
Additionally, The GRAMMY® Museum will celebrate the week leading up to the GRAMMY® Awards with six days of educational programs prior to Sunday's show.
