Jazz Vespers

Praise God with the piano, the saxophone, and the upright bass – Psalm 150 (paraphrased). Vespers is the traditional evening prayer service.  Jazz Vespers is a modern form of this service that crosses denominational boundaries and demonstrates the unifying power of the Holy Spirit through the music of jazz.


Our most recent Jazz Vespers event was on Wednesday, May 24th, with musical guests The Wailin' Hues, who were with us most recently on November 4th, 2020.   Check out the video HERE 

We'll begin with our Fall schedule of events in September, every third Wednesday of the month. 

Jazz Vespers services began at Knox Church in 2013 and has been blessed by many gifted Ottawa-based jazz musicians!   Jazz Vespers at Knox are held at 7 pm, normally on the third Wednesday of each month, September through May.
