Berklee College of Music Students to Present American Master Awards
Berklee College of Music will present its first American Master Awards on Tuesday, March 17, in Nashville to Grand Ole Opry vice president and general manager Pete Fisher; Eddie Bayers, drummer on more than 300 gold and platinum records; and Curb Group CEO Jim Ed Norman, to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the college’s Nashville student trip.
The awards will be presented at Opry Studio following a Grand Ole Opry concert by Larry Gatlin, Charlie Worsham, The Willis Clan, Lee Greenwood, and more.
For 30 years, a group of Berklee students have spent their spring break in Nashville to earn an in-depth look at the music industry. The trip has grown to 120 students per year, led by professor of songwriting Pat Pattison, and program director for music technology Stephen Webber. More than 3,000 students have attended the program since it began.
“When Pat Pattison first let some students follow him to Nashville all those years ago, he had no idea that thousands would eventually follow, hundreds of lives would change, and Berklee and Nashville would never be the same,” said Webber. “When I joined the trip 21 years ago, it was instantly apparent that Berklee in Nashville was the single most incredible educational experience I’d ever witnessed. I’ve felt that way every year since.”
