Having Fun and Raising Money for Litchfield Jazz Camp
Based on the success of the Scat & Scramble Brunch and last year’s Brunch With Basie fundraiser, we are doing it again. This year, the Brunch will kick off the Festival on SATURDAY morning July 28, 11:00 am – 12:30 pm at the Fairgrounds. The tented party features great music by top Litchfield Jazz Camp students and instructors, Directed by saxophonist Albert Rivera, a delicious brunch by Ciesco Catering Co (the same folks who provide our artist meals), private reserve French wines courtesy of Vandoren Vineyards, beer, and signature drinks. Know that while you are enjoying yourself you’ll be helping the future of live jazz by supporting Litchfield Jazz Camp scholarships for students with financial need.
The Festival and Camp are dedicated to changing lives through the arts. The Camp has been awarding scholarships since its start in 1997. In all that time we have never turned away a student in need. About a quarter of our campers receive support, amounting to $70,000 to $100,000 annually. Your support will help us keep this commitment.
Brunch ticket holders enjoy the full Saturday Festival lineup. Featured artists include the Yoko Miwa Trio, Litchfield Jazz Orchestra, Trio Da Paz, Dan Brubeck & Friends – Tribute to Dave & Iola Brubeck, and the Jeff Tain Watts Trio.
