Jazz Vespers Returns Thursday, Sep 26th at 7pm
Vespers is a sunset evening prayer service in the Lutheran liturgy from the Latin word vesper, meaning “evening.” Jazz is a music genre originating in the African-American communities of New Orleans, characterized by strong, prominent meter, improvisation, and synco- pated rhythmic patterns.
