The Lakeland Community Jazz Festival Mission Statement

The Lakeland Community College Jazz Festival is dedicated to the presentation of educational opportunity for aspiring student jazz musicians of high school and junior high school age. In addition, the festival provides an educational forum for parents of student musicians, devotees of the music field and the public at large, through clinics, discussion panels, visual presentations and workshops. This annual event is also dedicated to providing a stage for the performance of mainstream jazz by internationally celebrated artists, as well as gifted musicians found in this area of the country. Mainstream jazz is a unique contribution to our culture and artistic heritage.

Jazz Festival History

In light of its prestigious history , the Lakeland Community College Jazz Festival is being planned with expanded programming for student performances and audience enjoyment. All aspects of the festival portray those vital qualities of style that made jazz a significant contribution to the world of art and a distinct American form of expression.

The continually growing response of area school jazz ensembles and ever larger audiences, plus widening educational possibilities, mandate a developing festival in scope and scheduling. Future jazz festivals will continue to include depth of educational and entertainment opportunities to enhance the cultural quality of the Lakeland vicinity.
