    PBJ & Jazz concerts are 1-hour long interactive concerts designed to introduce jazz and American music to young children and their families. Featuring some of Columbus’ finest musicians and ensembles, PBJ & Jazz concerts are hosted by former Columbus Music Hall owner and retired music educator Rebecca Ogden and are a great introduction to live music for the youngest audience member.

    “It has been so much fun over the years to work with great musicians playing real live jazz for kids and their families,” states Ogden. “Every concert is a treat. I am delighted that PBJ & Jazz has a life after the Columbus Music Hall in its new home at the Lincoln!”

    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 2009-10 concerts will be held in the ballroom in the Lincoln Theatre Complex, 769 E. Long Street, Columbus, OH 43203. All concerts begin promptly at 11:00 a.m.

    Thanks for posting about the winter series, Kerry. I took my then 3 year old to a PB&Jazz set last year and it was fantastic. I’m looking forward to giving her a chance to explore the awesome new Lincoln Theatre.
