As a member of this year’s GRAMMY Camp-Jazz Session Choir, Noah Rosner attended the 59th Annual GRAMMY Awards on February 12 and performed at the official after-party.
Noah and 31 other high school students nationwide were chosen for the 2017 GRAMMY Camp-Jazz Session to participate as members of a band, choir or combo. He joined seven other students in the choir, according to the GRAMMY Foundation, the program’s sponsor.
The young singers and musicians attended the GRAMMY Awards event as guests of The Recording Academy and performed at the GRAMMY Celebration after-party. During the previous week, the group performed at various events, including GRAMMY in The Schools Live! — A Celebration of Music & Education, which took place on February 9 at The Novo in Los Angeles. The students opened for singer-songwriter Aloe Blacc and the trio, KING.
In addition, the students performed with saxophonist Dave Liebman at Spaghettini; with Joey Alexander, a 13-year-old jazz pianist and GRAMMY nominee, at the bluewhale nightclub; and performed a “Living Room Concert” at The Recording Academy. They also recorded an album – GRAMMY Jazz 25 – at Capitol Studios in Hollywood, CA.
Another highlight of the Los Angeles trip was an appearance by the Camp-Jazz Session Choir and the combo on the TV show "Entertainment Tonight" on February 10. The choir and combo performed the "ET" theme song during the broadcast.
Noah is the second Masters student to be selected for the GRAMMY Camp-Jazz Session within the last year. Julius Rodriguez ’16, now a jazz piano student at The Julliard School, was chosen for the 2016 program.
