The forum interview with Shapiro, who has served over 25 years with the Recording Academy, will be hosted by Museum Editor Michael Gray. Since joining the Recording Academy, Shapiro has championed programs engaging music and education communities across the country. She is the highest ranking woman at the Recording Academy, the organization behind the Grammy Awards, the charitable MusiCares Foundation and more.
Based in Nashville and Los Angeles, she oversees all 12 of the Recording Academy chapters across the country, as well as the organization’s Corporate Governance, GRAMMY U, Producers & Engineers Wing and GRAMMY Professional Development arms. As a member of Nashville’s Music City Music Council, Shapiro played a major role in the development of Music Makes Us: The Nashville Music Education Project.
Made possible by the Gibson Foundation, the forum annually recognizes an individual who represents the legacy of pioneering agent-manager Louise Scruggs, the adoring wife and savvy business partner of Country Music Hall of Fame member Earl Scruggs. Previous honorees are Denise Stiff, Liz Thiels, Mary Martin, Bonnie Garner and Sarah Trahern.
