The 15th Annual Central Brooklyn Jazz Festival is NYC’s longest continually running grassroots festival dedicated to Jazz. The festival features more than 50 concerts and events with over 500 musicians performing throughout Brooklyn from Coney Island to Williamsburg.
The recurrent theme of the Jazz Vespers is: “Experience the Presence of God through the Sounds of Jazz.” Currently in its third year, the Jazz Vespers series has built a following of jazz lovers around New York City and Brooklyn, and continues to secure well-respected jazz musicians that bring an unmistakable feeling of celebration for God, and the jazz art form. Jazz Vespers is more than just a performance, it is an experience. As one past attendee remarked, “I enjoy and look forward to Jazz Vespers! It is an amazing, spiritual, and, musical mixture. Praise God for Jazz!”
