Enjoy jazz with a splash of spiritual inspiration in a venue with exquisite sound and ambiance. This year being the 4th Anniversary of Spirited Jazz Vespers, Saturday June 23rd will see a special Spirited Jazz Celebration. Chelsea McBride's Socialist Night School 19-piece big band will be right here on our stage. The Toronto based Band recently received stellar acclaim in Downbeat Magazine.


Those who have been appreciating the short trip on a country road to a beautiful setting with top jazz musicians, completed with the musings of Reverend Shana, will be sure not to miss these vespers. Here's the ticket link: https://www.ticketsscene.ca/events/20935/


Chelsea McBride is the 25 year old award-winning conductor/composer/ringleader of Chelsea McBride's Socialist Night School, a 19-piece big band featuring a diverse and multi-generational mix of Toronto's finest jazz musicians. Called "a dazzling set anyone with even an interest in big band should check out", their debut full-length album The Twilight Fall recently received 4 stars in Downbeat Magazine and can be heard here: https://crymmusic.bandcamp.com/album/the-twilight-fall


With influences ranging from Maria Schneider abroad to Darcy James Argue and Christine Jensen here at home, the Socialist Night School is one of the youngest and most prolific groups playing original contemporary big band music in Canada.


Enjoy jazz with a splash of spiritual inspiration. These evening services are a unique blend of jazz and spirituality. Each service brings together live music from popular local jazz musicians, with a brief meaningful message, and a little of the history of the music performed. This style of jazz vespers allows time and space for music to speak to the soul.
