The Baptist College of Florida (BCF) Jazz Band will begin their spring tour on April 10, with a series of concerts in two area schools and a local church. Performances will begin that Tuesday morning at Marianna High School, Chipley High School in the afternoon, and conclude with a 6:00 p.m. concert at Blue Lake Baptist Church in Chipley.

The following day begins the five day, six state tour taking the Jazz Band to concert venues in schools, churches, and assisted living facilities. Beginning with a stop in Douglasville, GA, and on to Greenville, SC, up through Hendersonville NC, and as far as Sevierville, TN, the Jazz Band will be performing at multiple locations as well as at the Wears Valley Ranch in Tennessee, a Christian home complex that provides education, and counseling to children in crisis situations.

"I am excited about the ministry possibilities that this trip will provide for our group," stated Ron Branning, director of the Jazz Band, "especially the time we will get to spend with the kids at the ranch. I feel that our students will get an opportunity to make a positive impact on those young people from crisis situations."

The tour will conclude April 15 with a Sunday morning concert at the Northside Baptist Church in Tifton, GA, and Sunday evening performance at Cloverdale Baptist Church in Dothan, Ala.
