Details: Selected students from all Northside ISD high schools will be able to rub shoulders with music industry insiders, including Grammy Award winners as the only Texas school district to host this year’s “GRAMMY in the School’s” 2018 Career Day by the Recording Academy (which produces the Grammy Awards.)

NISD was one of five districts selected nationally for students to experience all all-day symposium conducted by the production team and Grammy Award winning musicians. The District submitted the application almost two years ago and the process was extremely selective.

242 junior and senior students from across the district were recommended by their teachers as promising stars “on stage” as well as backstage will attend four classes conducted by international music producers, recording engineers, technology specialists, and Grammy Award winning musicians.

Career Day is an opportunity for junior and senior performing arts students who are motivated to move into the arts in some professional manner to have direct contact with music insiders. It is a true career day exploratory interaction with the best in the industry.

The day will begin at 9 a.m. with a “Grammy in the Schools” overview and introduction of workshop leaders. An opening and closing ceremony is included along with four intense classes (Music Business, Creators, Producers & Engineers, and Tech & Music) allowing students to explore the possibilities in the music industry up close and personal with the best in the business.

The day ends with a live performance for the students by Mobley at 2:20 p.m. in the Stevens High School Auditorium. (The performance is not open to the public.)
