Noah Rosner ’17 is among 32 high school students nationwide who were chosen for the 2017 GRAMMY Camp-Jazz Session. He will join seven other students in the program’s choir.
The students’ selection for this program “launches them into the spotlight surrounding the 59th Annual GRAMMY Awards and provides them with unparalleled opportunities to perform for some of music's biggest names,” according to the GRAMMY Foundation, sponsor of the program. “The students, representing 30 cities and 14 states, will travel to Los Angeles for a 10-day musical adventure under the direction of Justin DiCioccio of the Manhattan School of Music, Dr. Ron McCurdy of the University of Southern California Thornton School of Music, and associate choral director Susanna Wegner of Kansas City, MO.”
"GRAMMY Camp-Jazz Session provides an unparalleled experience for some of the most talented young jazz singers and instrumentalists in the U.S. through extraordinary rehearsal, performance and recording opportunities during GRAMMY Week," said Neil Portnow, President/CEO of The Recording Academy and the GRAMMY Foundation.
The students will perform at various events, including GRAMMY in The Schools Live! — A Celebration of Music & Education. This event will showcase the students, along with special guest artists, on February 9, 2017 at The Novo in Los Angeles.
The young musicians and singers will attend the 59th Annual GRAMMY Awards on February 12 as guests of The Recording Academy and will perform at the GRAMMY Celebration after-party. To cap off the week, the group will also record an album – GRAMMY Jazz 25 – at Capitol Studios in Hollywood, CA.
Noah is the second Masters student to be selected for the GRAMMY Camp-Jazz Session within the last year. Julius Rodriquez ’16, now a jazz piano student at The Julliard School, was chosen for the 2016 program.
