Jazz Vespers - Miles Davis Tribute

Join us for  Jazz Vespers at Christ Church Deer Park.

This will be an afternoon of live jazz, reflective readings, prayers for our city and the world, and a jazzy congregational hymn! It is one of their most popular services - with wonderful music, and with some of the finest jazz artists in Canada.

For those who have been so far, these events have been surprisingly delightful, the musicians who appear are of the highest quality anywhere! The readings appeal to anyone with even the slightest of an inclining of humanity to them - meant to inspire and uplift.

Performance scheduled for today: tribute to Miles Davis with Steve McDade

(http://www.stevemcdade.com/steve-mcdade/discography/)

Service begins at 4:30 p.m. (Usually runs until 6 pm)

Please be at the church by 4:00 p.m. I will try to be there a bit early and greet you at the door.

Otherwise, we usually sit at the front on the left hand side, if I arrive late.

There is no admission charge, but a good will offering will be collected.

It would be great if we had a large turn out for this event. It is a lovely church and a lovely very inexpensive afternoon of high quality jazz and they deserve our support to help keep this event going.

Please tell your friends and colleagues.

Christ Church Deer Park is located on the west side of Yonge a few blocks north of St Clair. Very close to the subway for those who are TTCing it.

    not sure how many of you were there as I ended up standing on the front steps as it was so nice and some of you snuck in the side door.
    the band was fab, though perhaps a touch loud. I sat at the back of the church as my aches and pains still prevent me from sitting still for long. happy birthday Miles Davis, thanks for all the music you gave us and for never settling for the same old routine.
