FRIENDS GALA: Please join us to help our young people save America’s true art form -- jazz. Your participation will support the future of live jazz by helping the ground breaking Litchfield Jazz Camp build a scholarship fund for students in need.
To kick off the celebration of the 15th Anniversary of the Litchfield Jazz Festival in Kent we’re hosting our Friends Gala at the beautiful Morrison Gallery. You’ll be treated to A Taste of Kent -- delicious hors d'ouvres that are signature dishes by area restaurants and caterers. Fine wines and Magic Hat microbrews will accompany the food. Music will be provided by outstanding students from Litchfield Jazz Camp.
Enjoy the exhibit at The Morrison Gallery, the work of artist Bob Lenz, a Litchfield Performing Arts Board Member. An added treat is the The Morrison Gallery sculpture garden. Dress as fabulously as you like. It’s a party! VIP parking and up-front seating is included in your Friends ticket.
MAINSTAGE PERFORMANCES: 7:45 PM -- The Dave Brubeck Quartet. Mr. Brubeck, winner of a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award and the National Medal of Arts, turns 90 this year, and we honor him for the magnificent artist and humanitarian he is. Join us to wish this living legend the happiest of birthdays.
