This day has been equally as amazing and exciting as the rest of GRAMMY Camp — Jazz Session and just as busy! Today will be the last official rehearsal for these talented jazz musicians awaiting their concerts and recordings at Capitol Records. Everyone is now striving for perfection after the long hours and intense practices spent on the music they will be performing. 

How exciting!  Today is Tuesday, the fifth day of GRAMMY Camp — Jazz Session!  The thirty talented musicians started their day off with a delicious breakfast and later headed into the three hour practice in the morning. During their break, Drew and I interviewed some of the choir to get a little behind the scenes look on what leads up to their performances. After their practice and interviews, we all ate lunch outside because the weather was beautiful as usual. We then went to College Day, where representatives from some of the top music schools in the nation came to visit these talented high schoolers. The New School, USC, University of Miami, Manhattan School of Music were some of the colleges that came to visit and recruit these talented students. Later on the students are planed to have their first practice at University of Southern California to get ready for their GRAMMY in the Schools Live concert.
