Litchfield Jazz Festival Scholarship Party

Rural Intelligence Parties and OpeningsThe Litchfield Jazz Festival is more than an August weekend of great music on the campus of the bucolic Kent School. It is also the culmination of a four-week camp that offers intensive music education for some 550 students. The camp is a unique opportunity for students interested in jazz—the one truly American art form—to work with masters to keep this musical tradition alive for generations to come. Last Sunday, Carol & Bob Lenz hosted a fundraiser for the Litchfield Jazz Camp‘s scholarship program at their stunning home in South Kent, CT. After sipping Champagne and nibbling on tea sandwiches, guests sat down for performances by camp alumni, demonstrating in the most delightful way that giving to the scholarship fund is a very good investment.
