Cherrington Elementary School hosted musicians from the Columbus Jazz Arts group on Friday, February 15, for an interactive afternoon of music making and performing.  Jump for Jazz was an educational performance that combined great jazz standards and songs from early childhood materials that adapt well to the jazz genre.  Jump for Jazz aims to enhance literacy, musical awareness, and movement for young children.  The audience added “jazz” to their vocabulary while listening, singing, jumping, reading patterns and even playing instruments.  A professional jazz trio, made up of full time career musicians, brought to the youngsters an energetic and interactive performance experience of the highest level.
