Peace Memorial's Concert Series begins its season with the musical variety program "Jazz and More," featuring the jazz ensemble and jazz combo from Tarpon Springs High School's Leadership Conservatory for the Arts.

The show, which will feature toe-tapping and finger-snapping tunes, begins at 3 p.m. Sunday in the sanctuary of Peace Memorial Presbyterian Church, 110 S Fort Harrison Ave., Clearwater.

No tickets are needed and seating is first-come, first-served. An offering will be taken ($5 minimum is suggested) to help these young musicians reach their goal of being the lone Florida band to perform at the 2013 Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City.

A light reception to greet and thank the musicians will follow the concert.
