The New York Times once said, “Based on the late-day service known
as ‘Evensong,’ Jazz Vespers allows liturgists and artists to invest
traditional worship with a soaring sense of the divine.” The jazz
ensemble for the service will be led by the Rev. Norm Freeman, Jr.,
a Juilliard-trained percussionist who has performed with Barbra
Streisand, Jessye Norman, and Kathleen Battle, among many others.
