Grammy Camp Jazz Session
We regretfully announce that GRAMMY Camp–Jazz Session will not take place for the 2020 season.
To those who have participated and supported the program for the past 26 years, we express our sincere appreciation. We strongly encourage students who have aspired to join the GRAMMY Band, Choir, or Combo to find other ways to grow and perform.
Through online research, students will find many resources and opportunities to participate and continue their progression as a musician. There are countless regional and national resources and activities for high school jazz performers offered by other excellent organizations. If you have difficulty finding these on your own, please reach out directly to us and we will do our best to help.
The GRAMMY Jazz program is an expensive program to operate. Although there is no way to know what the future holds, with the help of generous donors, we are hopeful that the program will in time be reinstated, and this will be remembered as a brief hiatus.
