A collaboration between Duke Chapel and the Duke Jazz Program, the Jazz Vespers worship services combine the ancient form of evening Vespers with the musical improvisations of jazz. Chapel Dean Luke A. Powery will offer prayers and readings, and The John Brown Big Band will provide musical leadership.
The John Brown Big Band is a professional large jazz ensemble, specializing in performances of traditional compositions from the Great American Songbook
as well as contemporary arrangements.
Co-sponsored by the Duke Jazz Program.
