Jazz Arts Group will present the second summer PBJ & Jazz concert at noon Saturday at Topiary Park in downtown Columbus.

The free concert follows an 11 a.m. story time at the adjacent Main Library and precedes a 1 p.m. activity with the Columbus Museum of Art. Gahanna's Jailynn Lake-Noel, an award-winning bassist for the Columbus Youth Jazz Orchestra, will lead a quartet in the performance. Attendees are invited to bring a blanket and picnic lunch.

The remaining summer shows are noon Aug. 13 and Sept. 10 at Topiary Park, 480 E. Town St. Bobby Floyd and Byron Stripling will perform next month, while Kelly McLennan will wrap up the summer series.

This is the eighth season for the hour-long interactive PBJ & Jazz concerts, which are aimed at introducing jazz and live music to young children. The shows are held at Topiary Park from June through September and move indoors to the Lincoln Theatre Ballroom from November through March.
