This past Sunday, nearly 20 million viewers tuned in to watch the 60th Annual GRAMMY Awards live broadcast. Music giants across the industry flocked to Madison Square Garden in New York to honor their peers. This year, 15 GRAMMY nominations went to artists who had performed on Levitt stages and we were thrilled to see that two of those artists went on to take home those prestigious gilded gramophones!

That’s right, 25 Levitt artists were nominated for a 2017 GRAMMY Award, and taking a closer look at the categories, you may notice that four of these artists share nominations for Best Children’s Album. That’s four out of five of that category’s nominees! Continue reading →

What better way to celebrate Women’s History Month than to spotlight a group of determined female musicians who’ve pioneered their way into music history?
Here we celebrate one of the 15 talented members of Mariachi Divas de Cindy Shea, the all-female, two-time GRAMMY-winning mariachi group. Dedicating their lives to a genre that has traditionally been dominated by men, Cindy Shea and the ladies of Mariachi Divas de Cindy Shea have challenged gender stereotypes, creating some incredible music in the process. In 2009, the group became the first all-female mariachi group to earn a GRAMMY nomination and win. They’ve since been nominated five times and took home a second GRAMMY Award for Best Regional Mexican Music in 2013—an award which marked the first time any mariachi group (male or female) had received two GRAMMY awards.
Be sure to check out their recent album, 15 Aniversario, which celebrates 15 years of making music with one another. We can’t wait to see what these determined divas are up to next!
