Jazz Vespers is a new take on an old church service. Vespers were held in the evening, as part of the traditional daily services of the church, and served to bring the day to a spiritual end with music, prayer and repose.
Takapuna Methodist Church’s annual Jazz Vespers event is neither a traditional worship service nor just a concert, but an event in which we all participate and enjoy a bit of fun with the jazz idiom and music. There will also be some reflective comments.
David Selfe, renowned jazz pianist and talented exponent of jazz and classical music, joins Callum Hall, cellist and singers for a sumptuous evening of beautiful music.
The theme this year is fruit and flowers.
