Jazz Vespers uses Jazz Music to explore spirituality alongside short reflections and prayer. Jazz is not only as played at Vespers as performance art, but as a spiritual music. The historic and earthquake-survivor, Trinity Methodist Church, presents this perfect event to see out another wonderful Art Deco Weekend.
What is Jazz Vespers?
Jazz Vespers contains elements of a concert and a worship service; offering opportunity for reflection through the notes of music and verse.
Jazz is a particularly effective resource for building inclusive community. Anyone can participate in making jazz. Even the most casual observer makes music when tapping or clapping spontaneously along with the beat. Jazz is this infectious. It blurs the lines of listener and player and draws everyone deeper into its contours. Jazz sounds like God because jazz reflects God’s way of blurring lines. Improvisation captures an always-growing faith.
Jazz has many entry points. Entering into the music at any time and in whatever way is a vision for life together in community. Jazz finds its home in this church setting both for those who appreciate jazz for its own sake, but also those who feel its spirituality.
Donations are invited at the Vespers to support a local community 'Let the children live” project.
