Our first JAZZ VESPERS is coming up!
On Sunday, January 19 at 4pm our newest worshipful offering will begin with a vespers service that will feature our own Linda Szentes and her band Jazzlinks. This jazz ensemble is made up of friends who are also accomplished, improvising musicians: Brenda Baird, piano, Michael Toth, guitar, Johan Worst, bass and Zoltan Kollar, drums. They will accompany Linda’s voice and take solos too. This group has a distinctive sound which comes from working with the same people consistently; warm and blues-oriented with an infectious swing feel and melodic improvising. They interpret a vast repertoire and a range of styles within the jazz genre.
In our Jazz Vespers, musical selections will alternate with prayers, readings and meditations led by our ministers. Rev Hilde Seal and Rev Sophia Ducey will draw freely from a variety of sources for thematic inspiration.
A voluntary offering will be collected during the service (suggested donation of $10.00 per person) to help support this new ministry. Refreshments and fellowship will follow.
You will return home relaxed, uplifted, inspired, and ready to start a new week - a delightful way to spend a Sunday evening.
Please mark your calendars. ALL are WELCOME!
