A Weekend of Jazz, Art & Golf

The City hosted a weekend of fun, in the name of the Arts

The City of Casselberry’s Jazz, Art & Golf Weekend drew record crowds of jazz, art and golf enthusiasts. On Saturday evening, the Casselberry Golf Course provided a perfect backdrop for this year’s “Jazz on the Green” concert. The City teamed up with WLOQ 103.1 FM to provided a free event inviting the public to come out with picnic baskets, chairs and blankets for a spectacular evening of cool jazz.

Saturday night's concert was kicked off
Marc Taylor
with the soulful sounds of De’Vine Soul. Based out of Orlando, De'Vine Soul provided plenty of music diversity that incorporated Jazz, Latin, Neo-Soul, Gospel, R&B and Funk. During the half-time presentation, WLOQ 103.1 FM radio personality, Marc Taylor, introduced Mindy Colton, the artist of this year’s “Jazz on the Green” poster and Casselberry’s Vice-Mayor Colleen Hufford. The Robert Harris Group followed with a unique and relaxing sound that always features cheerful, jazz melodies with a hint of Spanish guitar; a trademark of Robert Harris’s masterful guitar work.

As part of the concert, a sneak preview of the “On the Edge” art exhibit showcased eight local artists. The art exhibit is now on display at City Hall through December.

The fun-filled weekend concluded on Sunday with a very successful 2nd Annual Swing “Fore” the Arts Golf Tournament. The tournament, which was held at the Casselberry Golf Course, helped raise funds to support the arts in Casselberry and in Seminole County. Over 30 foursome teams of golfers teed up and enjoyed an outstanding day of competition. The event ended with a lunch provided by Bob Evans, plenty of raffle prizes and an awards ceremony.

1st Place:    Rick Hammerl, Tyler Johnson, Steve Thiebauth, Randy Smathers
