Two special events are planned for this weekend at the University of Tennessee at Martin.

Saturday, the guest artist series continues with the Lalo and Friends Salsa Band, a horn-blowing Afro-Cuban ensemble made up of award-winning Nashville session musicians led by percussionist Lalo Davila. Salsa in the Quad will also feature food trucks, a 4:30 p.m. dance lesson, and a 5 p.m. performance. Admission is free. 

Then on Sunday, the State Line Saxophone Ensemble will kick off its inaugural season at 5 p.m. with Rock-Toberfest in the Blankenship Recital Hall.

This is a newly-formed group of exceptional high school students, college music students and area music educators. 

This event will feature arrangements of tunes by Journey, The Beatles and Van Halen alongside more classical fare to celebrate this season.

Admission is $5 for adults and $1 for students with an ID.
