SUMMIT, NJ - Reid Christmann, a Hilltop City resident and student at Newark Academy, has been included in a group of 32 talented high school students from across the United States who have been selected for the 2017 GRAMMY Camp - Jazz Session. Their selection launches them into the spotlight surrounding the 59th Annual GRAMMY Awards, and provides them with unique opportunities to perform for some of music's biggest names.

Christmann was one of five trombone players named.

The students, representing 30 cities and 14 states, will travel to Los Angeles for a 10-day musical adventure under the direction of Justin DiCioccio of the Manhattan School of Music, Dr. Ron McCurdy of the University of Southern California Thornton School of Music, and associate choral director Susanna Wegner of Kansas City, MO. Two former GRAMMY Camp students will be joining as members of the GRAMMY in the Schools media team to document the GRAMMY Week experience for the GRAMMY Foundation's social media platforms.

"GRAMMY Camp - Jazz Session provides an unparalleled experience for some of the most talented young jazz singers and instrumentalists in the U.S. through extraordinary rehearsal, performance, and recording opportunities during GRAMMY Week," said Neil Portnow, President / CEO of The Recording Academy and the GRAMMY Foundation. "The Recording Academy and its affiliated charities are proud to be a place of inspiration and collaboration for this program that encourages many of these gifted high school students to pursue professional careers in the music industry."

The young musicians will record an album -- GRAMMY Jazz 25 -- at the legendary facility in Hollywood. Over the years, noted members of The Recording Academy's Producers & Engineers Wing have worked with the ensembles during the recording process. GRAMMY Camp - Jazz Session albums from 2007–16 are available for purchase via online music outlets such as Amazon, iTunes, and Rhapsody.

The selected students will perform at various GRAMMY Week events, including -- for the eighth year -- an appearance at 'GRAMMY In The Schools Live!', A Celebration Of Music & Education. GRAMMY Camp - Jazz Session members will also attend the 59th Annual GRAMMY Awards on February 12 as guests of The Recording Academy, and will perform at the GRAMMY Celebration after-party.
