jazz for kids

Kids, grab your parents and grandparents and bring them to the Jazz Arts
Group’s 2018-2019 PBJ & Jazz Fall/Winter Concert Series starting Saturday, November 10 at
10 and 11:30 a.m. at the Lincoln Theatre Ballroom (769 East Long Street). PBJ & Jazz concerts
are one-hour long interactive concerts designed to introduce jazz and American music to young
children and their families. The series is sponsored by Grange Insurance and PNC Bank. Jazz
Academy support also comes from GCAC, Ohio Arts Council, The Columbus Foundation,
LBrands, State Auto Insurance Companies and Southwest Airlines, the Official Airline of the
Jazz Arts Group’s Jazz Academy.

Don’t miss this year’s collection of internationally known artists. The season kicks off
Saturday, November 10 with Safety Squad and its high-energy, entertaining approach to jazz
fusion. Other series highlights include Dave Powers and Friends performing “Songs of the
Season” on Saturday, December 15; Anthony Stanco Ensemble presenting a trumpet-inspired
program on Saturday, January 12, 2019; Vocal sensation Maggie Green performing Brazilian
jazz on February 23, 2019; Fan-favorite Bobby Floyd Trio featuring Columbus vocal jazz
legend Mary McClendon on March 23, 2019.

PBJ & Jazz concerts feature some of Columbus’ finest musicians and ensembles in a family-
friendly setting. PBJ and Jazz artists are known for their ability to captivate audiences of all ages, making the series a cornerstone of Jazz Arts Group’s Jazz Academy programming.
Parents love this program because “the musicians [are] extremely family friendly,” as reported
by a mom this past season. “We loved the approachability of the programming.”

PBJ & Jazz concerts are more than just a chance for children to have fun, sing, and dance; your child will be learning too. “My daughter and I enjoyed how the band leader introduced each instrument,” reported one parent. “It helped her identify what each instrument sounds like. On the way home she was correctly identifying trumpets and saxophones in the jazz songs we were playing.”

PBJ & Jazz concerts are $5 per person at the door with a family maximum of $20. Children
receive a peanut butter & jelly sandwich, juice and a cookie. The 2018-19 Fall/Winter season
concerts are held in the ballroom in the Lincoln Theatre complex, 769 E. Long Street,
Columbus, OH 43203. A Spring/Summer schedule of PBJ & Jazz concerts will take place
outdoors at the Downtown Topiary Park on East Town Street. Those dates and performers will
be announced at a later date.
