My Commuity: Summer Solstice Jazz Festival

Thanks to a collaboration between The City of East Lansing, Wharton Center for Performing Arts and the MSU College of Music, downtown East Lansing was abuzz with life and the smooth tunes of the Summer Solstice Jazz Festival. Being a family friendly affair, the East Lansing Public Library provided a children’s area with jazz-themed arts and crafts to help educate East Lansing’s youth. Jazz-enthused crowds heard their fair share of free live music, with bands such as the Diego Rivera Quartet and the Sean Dobbins Trio performing live for two evenings. Tickets were also sold for a special Sunday performance of legendary jazz musician Joe Lovano at the Wharton Center for Performing Arts. [nggallery id=42]
