The New School, Manhattan New York

As part of Cameron Reichert's pursuit of music performance after high school, he has fundraised for and toured several schools in the New York area. After his trip in early November, he has elected to audition for the New School in the center of Manhattan ( This private nonprofit university houses some of the best music faculty in the world and has fostered one of the best Jazz programs in the world! Graduates include: Pianists Robert Glasper, Bill Evans, Brad Mehldau Composer John Cage and many others; a very prestigious school.

The New York jazz scene is second to non and is a hotbed for any young musician looking to cut their teeth and make a name for themselves.

Understandably Universities of this caliber require a "pre-screening" audition to sort through the sea of applicants. With the help of Guitarist Craig Hall, Pianist Matt Ridgeway, Percussionist Garrett Stannard and Audio Engineer Michael Boise of Sound Color Studios ( we have put this audition together with Cameron!

I invite you to take a listen. We think he has a great shot!

If you would like to know how you can support Cameron and many more Park High School musicians who on this track, please contact me at
