The Grammy Awards 2022 Set for April in Las Vegas

By David Salazar

The Grammy Awards Ceremony has been moved to the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on April 3, 2022.

Previously, the ceremony was scheduled to be on Jan. 31, 2022 at Arena (formerly known as the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California). Many artists and executives spoke up to postpone and relocate the show because of the COVID-19 surge in Los Angeles. The rescheduling was also decided in hopes to have the event still take place live with an audience.

Along with the live showcase, the 64th annual Grammy Awards will be broadcast on April 3 from 8-11:30 p.m. EST on CBS and live-streamed on Paramount Plus.

Nominations for Best Opera Recording are Bartók’s “Bluebeard’s Castle” produced by Robert Suff, Glass’ “Akhnaten” produced by David Frost, Andrew Cornall’s recording of Janáček’s “Cunning Little Vixen,” Little’s “Soldier Songs” produced by Lewia Pesacov and John Toia, and “Dialogues Des Carmélites” by Poulenc also produced by David Frost.

Best Classical Solo Vocal Album nominees include “Confessions” by Laura Strickling and pianst Joy Schreier, Will Liverman and pianist Paul Sánchez’s “Dreams Of A New Day – Songs By Black Composers,” “Mythologies” by Sangeeta Kaur & Hila Plitmann, and pianist Danaë Xanthe Vlasse, “Schubert’s Winterreise” performed by Joyce DiDonato and Yannick Nézet-Séguin, and “Unexpected Shadows” by Jamie Barton, Jake Heggie, and pianist Matt Haimovits.
