The GRAMMY Museum's first evening class of 2012 takes a look at the life and legacy of Elvis Presley. Taught by Executive Director Robert Santelli, "The Elvis Presley Story" is part of the Museum's January celebration of the King of Rock & Roll.
Santelli will trace Presley's career from his early days in Memphis and the rise of rock & roll, through his time spent in Hollywood making movies, his late '60s comeback, and his tragic death in 1977 at age 42.
Class dates for "The Elvis Presley Story" are Tuesday, Jan 3; Tuesday, Jan 10; and Tuesday, Jan 17. Classes begin at 8 p.m. and occur in the Museum's Clive Davis Theater. "The Elvis Presley Story" is free to all Museum Members and is part of the institution's on-going Continuing Education series.
As part of their first-ever Elvis Month, The GRAMMY Museum is proud to present a special panel focusing on the King of Rock-n-Roll's time spent in Hollywood. Wednesday, January 4, 2012; 7:30pm
Join up as they take a special look into the lesser-explored side of Elvis Presley's career with Elvis At The Movies. Through a panel of his costars Mary Ann Mobley (Girl Happy and Harum Scarum), Celeste Yarnell (Live A Little, Love A Little) and Jan Shepard (King Creole ), guests will get a unique view into the inner-workings of Elvis courtesy of the people who acted along side of him. After the discussion, moderated by GRAMMY Museum Executive Director Bob Santelli, panelists will take audience questions.
Earlier this year Executive Director Bob Santelli made a promise that Elvis would be honored each January at the Grammy Museum. (With thanks to EIN)
