PBJ & Jazz Concert Series at Topiary Park is BACK in 2021, and we are so excited! These concerts entertain kids and get them interested in all types of music, while enjoying the amazing Topiary Park!
PBJ & Jazz concerts are free 1-hour long interactive concerts with Columbus Jazz Arts Group for families to introduce jazz and American music to young children and their families.
This season, the theme is “A Letter to You”, inspired by the visual art of Aminah Robinson and her use of envelopes as a drawing surface in her “Unwritten Love Letters”. These live performances will feature the music of a different famous jazz musician as we write a musical “letter” of gratitude to them for their contributions to jazz. Each concert will be accompanied by a story time and art activity that shares the theme “A Letter to You”.
The concerts begin at noon in Topiary Park. Stick around for a hands-on art activity at 1 p.m., presented by the Columbus Museum of Art. Bring a lunch picnic and a blanket if you wish to enjoy the afternoon family-style.
Summer PBJ & Jazz concerts are presented at the Topiary Park, free of charge by Jazz Arts Group in partnership with Columbus Metropolitan Library and Columbus Museum of Art. The series is made possible by the support of Encova Insurance
