With generous support from Jon & Lisa Yob of the Yob Family Foundation, The Tampa Bay Times Forum and a variety of local Tampa businesses and corporations, The GRAMMY Museum’s Music Revolution Project stimulates creative young musicians by connecting them with GRAMMY-level artists. During The GRAMMY Museum’s summer pilot program in 2012, 24 emerging young artists participated in an intensive, four-week curriculum including instruction, rehearsals and mentoring at the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts and Sprint Center, two iconic venues located in downtown Kansas City, Mo. In February 2013, the Kansas City students were invited to attend the GRAMMY-Awards show in Los Angeles, CA.
“Arts education has been demonstrated to improve our kids’ scores on standardized tests, make them more likely to go to college, increase their marketability in the workforce, as well as bring joy into their lives,” said Lisa Yob, Director of Philanthropy for the Yob Family Foundation. “We could not be more proud to help bring this landmark program to Tampa Bay.”
