Jazz at Saint Peter’s: October 2017

Jazz at Saint Peter’s: October 2017

No. 1
As you might have seen in our 2017-18 ARTS BROCHURE, we are developing a new take on Jazz Vespers this year. For the first time we are working with artists across multiple weeks — we’re calling them Jazz Residencies — helping us to highlight the different seasons of the church year, while working the musical performances more deeply into the fabric of the service.

Our first Jazz Residency started this past Sunday, with percussionist Rogério Boccato leading the group. Check out the lineups for each date below.

Another piece of big news is that we are not hosting All Nite Soul this year because we are diverting all of our energies into the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation weekend.

On October 28, the Gala Concert features a jazz performance by Chanda Rule among other stellar offerings. And then the next day, October 29, Ike Sturm presents his full, uncut Jazz Mass, which has actually rarely been performed in its entirety here at Saint Peter’s even though it originated here. Featuring Ike, his band Evergreen, soloists Ingrid Jensen and Loren Stillman, a string orchestra, and the Long Island Sound Vocal Jazz Ensemble from LIU Post under the direction of Dr. Jennifer Miceli. We hope you can make this very special event. DETAILS HERE

Jazz + Prayer | Sundays at 5:00 p.m.
