The full performance schedule for the student stage at the Litchfield Jazz Festival is now online! Click here to view the schedule.

Included in student tuition is a 3-day festival pass for each student, master classes with festival stars and a performance opportunity for each student on a dedicated second stage for our students.

Most students who attend Session 5 will be scheduled to perform with their Session 5 Combo.
