Each Sunday at 5:00 P.M. an open community gathers for prayer and reflection on the lines of sacred scripture and jazz.
The community is diverse and includes people who live near and far, native and new New Yorkers, and people visiting New York City. Oftentimes churches will bring groups from their home congregations. Others are not Christians or are exploring Christianity for the first time in this supportive environment. Musicians from New York and throughout the world come to play.
As at every other liturgy of Saint Peter's Church, everyone is welcome.
About this residencyStarting on Sunday, October 1, at Jazz Vespers we begin exploring a new format to mark the start of the 2017-18 Arts Season at Saint Peterâ€™s. Each month we will feature one (or more) artists-in-residence, who are designing a multi-date program featuring their own guest artists. Our first artist-in-residence is percussionist RogĂ©rio Boccato, who leads different groups on October 1, 8, 15 and 22.
