IRONTON — In celebration of Jazz Appreciation Month, the Ohio University Southern Diversity Lecture and Performance Series will present a free Jazz Alive concert featuring saxophonist Tim Warfield and the Dan Karlsberg Trio at 7 p.m. Friday in the Bowman Auditorium. The event includes discussion on the history of jazz.

A native of York, Pa., who began studying the alto saxophone at 9, Warfield has appeared on several Grammy-nominated recordings, such as Stefon Harris’ “The Grand Unification Theory,” as well as “Dear Louis” and “Sonic Trance,” both under the leadership of trumpeter and New Orleans native Nicholas Payton.

Dan Karlsberg was born in Cincinnati and began playing piano at 5, with an emphasis on both classical music and jazz. He earned both a bachelor’s and master’s degree in jazz studies from the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music. He is active both as a performer and teacher.
