Noblesville Main Street Executive Director Lorna Steele has announced “Music And All That Jazz” will return to the courthouse square for seven shows starting May 23 and continuing through Oct. 4. Noblesville High School Assistant Band Director Bethany Robinson returns to secure talent and serve as the on-site host during each of the concerts.

The Peter Luttrull Jazz Combo will perform Aug. 2. The David Hartman Band, featuring a jazzy blend of standards, pop/rock and original tunes, will play its concert Sept. 6.
