Litchfield Jazz Presents : Duchess


Now winding up its second season, Litchfield Jazz Presents will conclude on April 29th at 7:30pm with a free live stream from TELEFUNKEN Soundstage featuring the award-winning singing group, Duchess.

Duchess, who last performed for Litchfield in 2019 at its last in-person festival, was honored this year with the Jazz Journalists 2021 Vocal Group of the Year award and the 2021 Jazz Times Critic’s Poll #1 Vocal Group pick, besting the legendary groups Manhattan Transfer and Take Six.

Duchess was founded in 2013 by New York singers Amy Cervini, Hilary Gardner and Melissa Stylianou. They will be backed at TELEFUNKEN Soundstage by Michael Cabe, piano, Matt Aronoff, bass, and Jared Schonig, drums. Now Anzic Recording artists, Duchess’ music was inspired by the 1930s sound of the renowned Boswell Sisters and they bring that vibe right up to date.

The Duchess show will welcome a limited live studio audience with a ticket-holder reception to meet the artists and enjoy refreshments. Proceeds from both ticket sales and live-stream listener donations will help fund need-based scholarships for the 26th Annual Litchfield Jazz Camp.
