Sara Caswell Jazz Vespers Residency
December 3, 2017 –
December 17, 2017
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 Jazz Vespers Residencies

We are exploring a new approach to our programming at Jazz Vespers in the 2017-18 Arts Season at Saint Peter’s. Each month we will feature one (or more) artists-in-residence, who are designing a multi-date program featuring their own guest artists.
About This Residency

Our third artist-in-residence for the 2017-18 Season is violinist Sara Caswell, who leads different groups on December 3, 10 and 17.

Sara Caswell was named the "Rising Star" winner in the violin category in the 2017 Downbeat Magazine Critic's Poll. During this three-week residency at Jazz Vespers, Sara performs with her string quartet and special guests.
