Founded in 1997, Litchfield Jazz Camp serves 350- 400 residential and day students during a month-long program on the campus of Canterbury School in New Milford, Connecticut. Run by Litchfield Performing Arts, a 33-year-old 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 who represent the best jazz players/educators on the scene today. To that we add eager music students in a non-competitive, all-inclusive program. No audition is required; just a desire to attend and make music. Litchfield Jazz Camp embraces all learners: students of all ages from 12 years up-- beginners, intermediate learners, advanced players, students with learning disabilities. That is how the collaborative, supportive and fun atmosphere at Litchfield Jazz Camp is created.
