    Jazz Vespers At Bethany @ 25

    The New Jersey Performing Arts Center

    Featuring nat adderley jr., jon faddis, vanessa rubin & lizz wright

    Celebrate 25 years of the Bethany Baptist Jazz Vespers Concert Series with music director and bandleader Nat Adderley Jr., jazz trumpeter and conductor Jon Faddis, jazz vocalist Vanessa Rubin and jazz/gospel singer Lizz Wright.

    Since 2000, Newark’s historic Bethany Baptist Church has hosted free concerts that combine jazz and worship. For this special event, Jazz Vespers heads to the NJPAC stage for a look back at 25 years of praiseworthy music. We’ll also honor Rev. M. William Howard, Jr., who co-founded Jazz Vespers with Newark’s First Lady of Jazz, NEA Jazz Master Dorthaan Kirk (WGBO). Ms. Kirk described Dr. Howard as “a No. 1 jazz fan” to The New York Times, saying: “That’s why he started” the now-famous series.
