Polk State Hosting Antquan Smith for Three Free Concerts

Posted on by Polk Newsroom

Polk State College will host Antquan Smith for three free concerts.

A multitalented artist who excels at singing, songwriting and playing the guitar, Smith recently accepted a role as Sam Cooke in “A Sam Cooke Story.” He was also recently featured on the EP “Krack the Internet,” released via iTunes and other streaming services.

Currently a Walt Disney World parade performer, Smith studied music theory, vocal techniques and hip-hop dance at California Pacific College for the Performing Arts.

Smith will perform at 12:30 p.m. on Jan. 13 at the Polk State JD Alexander Center, 152 E. Central Ave., in Lake Wales.

The following day, Jan. 14, Smith will perform at 10 a.m. at the Polk State Winter Haven WLR Patio, 999 Ave. H N.E., and at 12:30 p.m. at the Polk State Lakeland Student Center, 3425 Winter Lake Road.

All three events are free and open to the public.

Smith will perform as part of the College’s Downtown Concert and Campus Concert series, both of which have brought a wide variety of artists to the area. He replaces David Leathers Jr., who was originally scheduled to perform at the College.
