A special Jazz Vespers with Spirituals and Gospel Music will take place at First Presbyterian Church on Sunday, May 4 at 4 p.m.
The choir of First Presbyterian Church will collaborate with the choir of Bethesda Lutheran Church on this program.
Last year the Bethesda choir invited us to join in a performance of Mozart’s Requiem on their concert series, and so we have invited them this year for a very different musical experience.
The choirs will sing spirituals and jazz anthems, to the accompaniment of piano, drums, and more.
It’s not a concert—there will be readings from Scripture, psalms, and prayers, as in the long tradition of Vespers in both Catholic and Protestant churches—but it will nonetheless really rock! It will, we hope, be a joyful and meaningful service.
Don’t miss it – and invite your friends!
