GRAMMY Camp – Jazz Session

GRAMMY Camp Jazz Session took place from February 4-13, 2017. Applications are now open for the 2018 Session!

As the GRAMMY Award signifies excellence, the GRAMMY Camp – Jazz Session program selects top high school singers and players from across the country. They come together to form a choir, combo, and band, and they participate in the “GRAMMY Jazz Tour” during GRAMMY Week.

See the 2017 roster and more in this year's Tour Book.

These talented young people perform with GRAMMY winners, GRAMMY nominees, and other music professionals at GRAMMY Week events at top jazz venues, the official post GRAMMY Celebration, and more. They also record a studio album AND go to the GRAMMY Awards.

There’s more: A focus is placed on career development and continued education. More than $2 million in college scholarships and financial aid is offered each year by multiple colleges and universities. Among these institutions are four “College Partners” who commit to offer financial aid each year.
