Experience jazz for the whole family with the Newport Jazz Assembly Band at Green Animals Topiary Garden. This family program for ages 5-7 (older and younger siblings welcome) aims to explore the history, importance and beauty of jazz as an art form and culture. Through performance and discussion, the band will lead the audience through a timeline of different eras and styles.

Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library will have a table at the concert. Families can register children 5 and younger in Newport County to receive a free book each month.
