Chicago’s ChurchJazz to lead worship

News | July 23, 2015

ChurchJazz, a Chicago-based jazz ministry, will come to paint the town jazz at St. Paul Lutheran Church on Sunday, July 26.

This group of veteran musicians will play the Chicago Jazz Mass at the 9:20 and 11 a.m. services at St. Paul. It is free and open to the public.

This joy-filled annual tradition is two decades old.

The ChurchJazz ensemble celebrates the gift of God’s music with congregations and audiences in many parts of the United States. The repertoire includes the Jazz Passion, the Chicago Jazz Mass, the Jazz Psalms, jazz hymn festivals, a jazz vespers service, and Bending Towards the Light, a jazz nativity.

ChurchJazz is comprised of incredible lifelong musicians who have performed throughout the world.
