The first Gucci Timepieces & Jewelry Music Fund was established in Greater China in 2012 and the model was quickly replicated in the UK and Japan. Each Music Fund operates in conjunction with a leading musical institution in its respective country, with a mission to support talented young musicians by providing scholarships and opportunities for musical development within the framework of an international music exchange program.
This year’s talents – comprising two students from each Music Fund – will be flying to the 10th annual GRAMMY Camp. During the ten days hands-on experience, the selected students, together with peers from all over the USA, will be immersed into the creative and business side of the world of music led by some of the industry’s most distinguished professionals. The week will culminate in a grand finale concert – the GRAMMY Camp ‘Launch Party’ – held at the iconic El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles on July 20th. The evening will feature live performances of music written during GRAMMY Camp to an audience of music industry personalities.
The six aspiring artists, Hiu Ching Natalie Lam, Kit Lau Tsz, Kunito Kitai, Yoko Suzuki, Jordan Hadfield and Renato Paris, are all confident to reach one day Grammy level standards and are excited by the challenges of the Grammy Camp. Every day, they will live and breathe music, harmoniously blending schoolwork and socializing around their passion.
