The event on Monday will be the seventh in First Lady Michelle Obama’s music series, and the during the day she will host 120 students from the D.C. area for a workshop on the history of country music, led by the Grammy Museum’s executive director, Robert Santelli.
The events will be streamed live on the White House site, whitehouse.gov.
