Last week Festival Artist-in-Residence Gary Smulyan met with the PR & Marketing Director for Litchfield Performing Arts in what turned out to be an informative and exciting interview touching on clinics and artist talks at the Festival, Gary's roots in the jazz world and more.
Here's a great quote from the interview:
Q: You will be moderating Artist Talks. What should we expect? What are you looking forward to here?
A: I’m looking forward to interviewing Festival performers, to learning more about them and to giving the audience a look into their lives and experiences. In particular, I’m very excited about moderating a discussion with saxophone players Miguel Zenón, Donny McCaslin and Don Braden. It will be a round-table style discussion with a number of people who all play the same instrument. I’m eager to see where that goes. I’m really looking forward to the entire weekend’s performances, artist talks and interactions with the audience.
