First it enjoyed a high ranking in a national magazine, now Harvey Mudd College will soon play to host a well-known singer.
Which singer? Just a young woman named Taylor Swift.
The Grammy-winning pop/country music star is scheduled to play a show to be part of VH1’s Storytellers, according to VH1 Tuner blog as an “intimate concert.”
Harvey Mudd earned the concert through participation in a contest set up by Swift in partnership with Chegg for Good and Papa Johns and additional support from Covergirl and American Greetings, according to the blog.
“(Swift) wants to bring the stripped down storytelling directly to you, and so with the help of (the above organizations) she set up a contest that allowed high schools and colleges from across the country to vote in hopes of hosting the show,” according to the Tuner blog. The concert is scheduled later this month. It will air at 6 p.m. on Nov. 11 on VH1.
The school has also earned a $10,000 music grant from Chegg for Good and Swift.
Harvey Mudd is one of five to receive a grant. California Institute of Technology in Pasadena is the only other California school to receive a grant.
