About Litchfield Jazz Camp

Founded in 1997, Litchfield Jazz Camp now serves 70-150 residential and day students each week for 1 to 4 week sessions on the campus of Canterbury School in New Milford, Connecticut. Run by Litchfield Performing Arts, a charitable organization dedicated to changing lives through music, the Camp's philosophy is simple. We start with a faculty of amazing and inspiring jazz musicians. To that we add eager music students in a non-competitive program. Litchfield Jazz Camp embraces all learners - students 12 years to adult, beginners, intermediate and advanced players, students with learning disabilities, and others. That is how the collaborative, supportive and fun atmosphere at Litchfield Jazz Camp is created. Find out for yourself!

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. Organized Jam Sessions will take place between Main Stage acts all weekend long. The Jam Sessions allow students who attended the camp in Sessions 1, 2, 3, and 4 to perform on the festival. Most students who attend Session 5 will be scheduled to perform with their Session 5 Combo. Session 5 students are also welcome to participate in jam sessions, but priority is given to students whose combos could not be reformed for the festival.

Get this! Did you know 8K people visit our site each month? If half of these clicked the donate button and gave just $5, we would earn $20K a month or $240K a year. With this money we could continue to support all the kids who want to attend Jazz Camp but can’t afford it AND pay for the entire Litchfield Jazz Festival line-up! Please help keep these programs alive.
