Jazz Vespers Service Offered At St. Timothy's Episcopal Church

Thursday, January 16, 2014

A Jazz Vespers service will be held at St. Timothy’s Episcopal Church, Signal Mountain, on Sunday, January 26, at 5 p.m.  All are welcome to attend this service.  There is no admission charge, but a freewill offering will be accepted, with all gifts going to support the Jazz Vespers program. 

For the eighth time, Kathy Tugman and the David Walters Trio have prepared an enticing program of music, bringing the emotional complexity of jazz into the light of the Vesper candle.  The set list includes well-known tunes like “How Deep is the Ocean” by Irving Berlin and more modern melodies like those found in the great jazz pianist McCoy Tyner’s “You Taught My Heart to Sing.”  This type of fascinating music will share the stage with spiritual and gospel songs, all punctuated by scripture readings and selections from American poets.  Uniting all the elements will be the swing and rhythmic drives of jazz and the vocal stylings of Kathy Tugman.

Also appearing will be Alexandra Ricks, adding her emotive violin playing to several pieces including a performance of "From This Valley" (written by the Civil Wars), which will also feature Kathy, Tarbell Patten, IV, and Mark Hackett.

St. Timothy’s Episcopal Church is at 630 Mississippi Ave. on Signal Mountain.
