Pittsfield: Lutherans hosting Jazz Vespers service

Jazz Vespers, presented by Zion Lutheran Church, 74 First St., will be held at 6 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 7. A low-key reception, featuring food from local restaurants, precedes the service at 5:30 p.m.

Vespers is the name of an evening service, which specifically includes prayers for the close of the day. Jazz vespers incorporates modern elements of jazz and blues into this historic tradition, from the song arrangements, to the harmonies, to the instrumentation.

There is no admission fee or cover charge to attend Jazz Vespers. All free-will donations are used to directly support the Jazz Vespers ministry.
