High School Jazz Festival

/

The Jazz Club of Sarasota is throwing some love to the up-and-comers with its fifth annual High School Jazz Festival. “If you’re wondering about the future of jazz, the answer is right here at this festival — the only one of its kind on Florida’s west coast," says festival coordinator and Jazz Club of Sarasota board member Gordon Garrett. The lead musician mentor for this year's festival is George McClain, leader of the Sarasota Jazz Project big band and another Jazz Club of Sarasota board member. McClain will be onstage to offer real time insight and advice to the young musicians, many of whom receive Jazz Club of Sarasota scholarships to continue their studies in jazz while in college.

7 p.m. Friday; Riverview High School, One Ram Way, Sarasota; Free; 366-1552; jazzclubsarasota.com.
