The South Delta Jazz Festival has a number of shows scheduled this week in Ladner and Tsawwassen.
The eighth annual event, which also includes a workshop for jazz students, features performances from workshop faculty members like saxophonist Ed Orgill, bassist Rob Kohler and trumpet player Bill Clark.
Saxophonist and U.K. native Len Aruliah, who has appeared at the festival a handful of times in the past, will perform on Friday at All Saints Anglican Church at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 for that show.
The annual festival is a program of the Delta Community Music School and was founded by school instructors Jared Burrows and Stephen Robb.
The event gives students an opportunity to play and learn side by side with instructors and professional musicians in small ensemble settings.
Workshop students are scheduled to perform tonight with the Bossa Boys at Diefenbaker Park at 7 p.m. and on Saturday at Delta Hospital at noon.
