The Litchfield Jazz Festival will celebrate 24 years on Friday, July 26, Saturday, July 27, and Sunday, July 28 at The Gunnery in Washington What better way to gear up for a great weekend of jazz than with a wonderful party. When that event gets you together with old and new friends, serves up delicious things to eat, great French wines, excellent music and art, AND helps kids to get a jazz education second to none, you can’t beat that!
This year the Litchfield Jazz Fest Opening Night Gala is back and at a wonderful new venue — The Judy Black Memorial Park & Gardens. The Gala will feature music by top Litchfield Jazz Campers, delicious appetizers by Litchfield’s popular eatery Meraki Kitchen, and reserve French wine, courtesy of Vandoren Vineyards. And, the artwork of local mixed media artist, Peter Wooster will be on display.
Proceeds from the Gala support need-based scholarships at Litchfield Jazz Camp. The Opening Night Gala is included in all Best Friend, Friend, and Friday Patron Fest tickets. All these tickets include a reserved premium seat for the Festivals’ Friday Evening Show, the Litchfield Jazz Orchestra with vocalist Alexis Cole at Emerson Performing Arts Center (EPAC) at the Gunnery (Rt 47) at 7:45pm.
