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!

Tickets are still available for An Afternoon of Jazz & Friends, Sunday April 24. This wonderful party and concert benefits Litchfield Jazz Camp’s need-based scholarships. Music is provided by Litchfield Jazz Camp instructors, top students, and two Monk Competition finalists, vocalist Veronica Swift and bassist Daryl Johns. Daryl will appear on this summer’s Litchfield Jazz Fest with pianist Orrin Evans and drummer Steve Johns – yes, his dad. (Steve was a member of the Trio of the late, great Dr. Billy Taylor.) Bet he’ll sit in if we ask him nicely! Veronica will appear at the 2017 Festival. The party is at a breathtaking home in South Kent, CT. Call 860-361-6285 for more information, or Click Here! More»
