The Recording Academy Texas Chapter hosted "A Soundtrack to Change" on Friday, March 14 at the LBJ Presidential Library. The invite-only event boasted a sneak preview of the LBJ Library's newest exhibit, Sixty from the '60s, a celebration of 60 American icons who helped define the decade of change and social movement in the United States.
Local music mavens Christine Albert and Susan Antone played host and were joined by Taylor Hanson (yes, that Hanson), Marcia Ball, Alan Luecke and Allan "Bud" Shivers Jr. and Theresa Jenkins. Other VIP guests catching a glimpse of the new exhibit included Christine Albert, Nancy Coplan, Laura Mordecai and Christee Albino.
This night of celebration was also held to raise awareness for the Texas GRAMMY U, a scholarship fund supporting the education of local college students pursuing a career in music. "We're here to showcase the diversity of our organization by combining music, history and visual art," said Jenkins, the executive director of the Recording Academy Texas Chapter.
Those of us who missed out on "A Soundtrack to Change" can still experience Sixty from the '60s. The exhibit opened to the public on March 15 and runs through January 2015.
