    On April 29, 2012 over 100 supporters gathered to enjoy an Afternoon of Jazz & Friends at a private residence. Music by Helen Sung's Trio and Litchfield Jazz Camp faculty and students. This was the third year of the Litchfield Jazz Festival's Jazz & Friends, a series of annual afternoons of music and fundraising fun for the benefit of Litchfield Jazz Camp Scholarships. With state funding becoming more and more limited, we need individuals to help support these young people. We don't teach just music, but team work, confidence and kindness helping young people become productive and cultured citizens. Help us help them!

            As part of the 2013 Generation In Jazz Festival at Dizzy's in New York, pianist Helen Sung introduced the music world the new music from her upcoming debut on Concord Records, "Anthem For A New Day." In what would be her sixth recording, Helen has become more courageous in playing with some of the most intense and young crop of jazz talent that's making lots of noise on the NYC jazz scene. Musicians like Obed Calviare, Ruben Rogers, Ingrid Jensen, and Samuel Torres. Also, jazz luminaries Paquito D'Rivera and Regina Carter make special appearances on "Anthem For A New Day." Sung, a native from Houston, Texas, attended the famed High School for the Performing and Visual Arts where some of her classmates included Jason Moran, Kendrick Scott, and Robert Glasper. She studied classical piano where she earned her undergraduate and master's degree at the University of Texas at Austin. Helen was also one of the first of seven students accepted into the inaugural class at the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz. Helen will be touring extensively in support of her new Concord Records release, "Anthem For A New Day."

              Pan Asian Chamber Jazz Ensemble: Music of Ryuichi Sakamoto Thursday, June 27, 2013 David Rubenstein Atrium at Lincoln Center, Frieda and Roy Furman Stage Meg Okura - erhu & violin, Helen Sung - piano, Anne Drummond - flute, Martin Wind - bass, Willard Dyson, drums. Sharon Kaufman - camera, editing. Queen of chamber-jazz Meg Okura presents the music of composer Ryuichi Sakamoto, re-imagining his classics from Yellow Magic Orchestra to the Academy award winning soundtrack, The Last Emperor. Described as “vibrant and sophisticated” by the New York Times, the Pan Asian Chamber Jazz Ensemble mesmerizes the audience. Meg Okura balances her roles as jazz violinist, composer, and erhu player. She has toured with jazz masters such as Michael Brecker, Steve Swallow, Lee Konitz, Tom Harrell, as well as Cirque du Soleil, and has performed as a soloist at venues from the Knitting Factory to Carnegie Hall to Madison Square Garden. Hailed by the New York Times as “vibrant” and “sophisticated,” Okura has toured and released two albums with her own group, the Pan Asian Chamber Jazz Ensemble, which “successfully blends the musical cultures of East and West for a new and exciting direction in modern jazz expression,” (Inside New York Magazine). Native of Tokyo, Meg Okura has toured all of Asia as the concertmaster and soloist with the Asian Youth Orchestra, and made her U.S. debut as a soloist with New York String Orchestra at Kennedy Center as a teenager. She earned her B.M. and M.M. degrees from the Juilliard School, and switched to jazz upon graduation. She has won numerous grants and awards as a composer, and her credits as violinist and erhu player appear on over fifty albums and soundtracks with various artists from David Bowie, Dianne Reeves to Lee Konitz.
