LABELS FOR EDUCATION  JOINS THE GRAMMY FOUNDATION® TO SUPPORT MUSIC EDUCATION IN CINCINNATI AREA SCHOOLS

American Country Music Duo Kate & Kacey Announce Donation

Campbell Soup Company’s (NYSE: CPB) Labels for Education program, which has supported music programs in thousands of schools since its inception in 1973, joined the GRAMMY Foundation® to bring Artist Ambassadors and American Country Music Duo Kate and Kacey Coppola to Mount Washington Elementary School in Cincinnati to promote the importance of music education in schools.

Kate & Kacey’s appearance is the second of four that will be sponsored by Labels for Education and the GRAMMY Foundation. Each event, which will be held in select schools across the country, features a different GRAMMY Foundation Artist Ambassador sharing a personal experience of music discovery with students. Other participating Artist Ambassadors will include Dave Koz, Crosby Loggins and Janelle Monae. During each event, schools receive 100,000 Labels For Education Bonus Points, which can then be used to secure additional educational equipment and resources, including musical instruments.

 “Our partnership with The GRAMMY Foundation has enabled the Labels For Education program to provide schools access to the innovative resources students need today for a well-rounded music education,” said Anne Pizarro, Campbell’s Labels For Education Director.  Through the partnership, the GRAMMY Foundation's proprietary Discovery Through Music™ curriculum will be made available to nearly 60,000 schools nationwide that are registered in this year's Labels for Education program.  

Research has shown that when students have access to enrichment programs including music and arts, they tend to also perform better in the classroom. Unfortunately, music programs are being eliminated at many elementary and secondary schools due to the budget pressures impacting schools across the country.
