Founded by retired professor and former music department Chair Charles M. Frank, the Lakeland Jazz Festival is now in its 47th year. It's left quite a mark over the decades too. More than 30,000 middle and high school musicians from throughout the state have participated in the annual event during its 47 years. This year’s event takes place today through Sunday at the Dr. Wayne L. Rodehorst Performing Arts Center (D-Building) at Lakeland Community College. Middle and high school performances and adjudication take place from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. today and from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. tomorrow. The spotlight concert will feature the Ralph Moore Quartet. The group will play a tribute to John Coltrane at 8 p.m. tomorrow. An hour prior to the concert, Ideastream’s Dan Polletta will host a pre-concert interview with Moore. Tickets cost $20, or $10 for students. The festival concludes with a Big Band Matinee concert that takes place at 4 p.m. on Sunday. Those tickets cost $10, or $7 for students. (Niesel)
