Jazz Prayer: Season Recap

Friday, May 19, 2017 - 7:30pm - 8:30pm

It's been a great three seasons of Jazz. In May we bring back some of our favorite pieces from previous programs - the ones that stuck with us or moved us deeply - ones the band had fun playing. Jazz Prayer begins at 7:30 p.m. with lite refreshments at 7:10 p.m. The non-denominational events create an opportunity for reflection and meditation in an ambiance of quality live jazz music. You'll encounter an hour of music like this. Your donation helps.
