GRAMMY Camp – Jazz Session students and parents were treated to a Lunch-In with admissions representatives from several universities and conservatory programs from across the country on Tuesday, Feb. 7 at the Embassy Suites Hotel.  Schools in attendance were California State University, Northridge; University of Southern California Thornton School of Music; New England Conservatory of Music; University of Miami Frost School of Music; The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music; Brubeck Institute of University of the Pacific Conservatory of Music; Manhattan School of Music; New York University and Berklee College of Music.

After a brief meal and an introduction by Senior Director of Education David Sears, each representative gave a short presentation about their institution, including the various programs offered in jazz performance.  Students and their families were then invited to visit any of several tables set up around the room and meet with the representatives, some of which were Deans of Admission at their school.  Pamphlets, CDs, business cards and other materials were available for students to peruse.  For sophomores and juniors, it was an opportunity to network with admissions officers at some of the nation’s top music schools; for seniors, the chance to weigh several college choices was invaluable.

Myles Nuzzi, a jazz vocalist and senior from Cumberland, Maine, said he is sure he will attend the University of Southern California.  However, Myles added, he may consider another school if he receives a more enticing offer.

Several alumni of past GRAMMY Camp – Jazz Sessions are enrolled at or have graduated from the colleges at the Lunch-In.
