Description: New Milford -- 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 34-year-old charitable organization dedicated to changing lives through music, the Camp's philosophy is simple. Start with a faculty of amazing and inspiring jazz musicians who represent the best jazz players/educators on the scene today. Campers participate in a non-competitive, all-inclusive program. No audition is required. Litchfield Jazz Camp embraces all learners ages 12 years and up-- beginners, intermediate learners, advanced players and students with learning disabilities. That is how the collaborative, supportive and fun atmosphere at Litchfield Jazz Camp is created. The final week of camp concludes with the Litchfield Jazz Festival in Goshen CT. There campers perform on a dedicated second stage, hear festival stars and meet artists in person. Fitness & sports electives are offered, as well as private lessons and a College Fair. Many campers attend every summer, allowing for the camp to make major impact on their skills and their emotional and personal development. Many go on to win prestigious music awards (Monk and Downbeat Competition winners and more). Need-based scholarships are available.
