Duke Ellington referred to jazz as “the only unhampered, unhindered expression of complete freedom yet produced in this country.”
Ken Burns calls jazz an “utterly American art form” and a “profound intersection of freedom and creativity.”
St. Michael’s Jazz Evensong was born out of a desire to bring this freedom, creativity, and joy to people during the dark days of anxiety and isolation experienced through the COVID-19 pandemic.
These gatherings are a unique blend of exceptional jazz rooted in the context of Anglican meditation and prayer. They are held every Sunday afternoon and offered free of charge to the community.
