Jazz Vespers: A Service of Lament and Hope
Location: Duke Chapel

Jazz Vespers blends the form of the traditional evening vespers service with the musical improvisation of jazz. With themes of lament and hope, the service combines poetry, ritual, blessings, and music. It is led by the John Brown Big Band, under the direction of John V. Brown, Vice Provost for the Arts at Duke University. This Jazz Vespers remembers the life and ministry of Óscar Romero, the Catholic bishop from El Salvador who advocated for the poor and was martyred on March 24,1980.
