Jazz Arts Group recently announced the schedule for the 12th annual JazZoo, taking place on four Fridays over the course of five weeks this summer at the Columbus Zoo. Held in the lovely outdoor setting of the zoo’s Water’s Edge Events Park along the O’Shaughnessy Reservoir, these concerts will pair the Columbus Jazz Orchestra with special guests for four exciting programs focusing on different elements of jazz and popular song. This season brings a variety of talented guest vocalists and instrumentalists to the stage, including Columbus favorites Kelly Crum Delaveris, Dave Powers, Phil Clark and Jonathan Elliott, and in a new addition for 2017, each show will include a 6:45pm opening set by community performers before the 8pm main event.
