Take a moment to check out the adjudicators for this year’s Lakeside Jazz Festival!  Each year we bring in some of the best jazz musicians and educators throughout the state of Florida to provide the highest quality adjudication for your students.  After your performance, your group(s) will get a one-on-one clinic with one of the adjudicators from your performance!
