Jazz Worship Service w/The Willie Sordillo Trio

The Willie Sordillo Trio is comprised of Willie Sordillo on alto saxophone, voice and musical direction, and two other musicians (piano and bass) on a rotating basis.

While jazz and gospel music are the group’s mainstays, repertoire for Jazz Worship is very broad, encompassing hymnody, folk, blues, popular and world music traditions. The musical direction on a given week is determined by the music’s relevance to the themes addressed by the sermon.

Preludes begin at 5:50 PM, worship begins at 6:00 and ends at 6:50 PM
