The Jack Lantz Dixieland Band will present a Pentecost-themed Jazz Vespers in the La Cañada Presbyterian Church on Sunday, June 4, at 5 p.m.
Pentecost is about the Holy Spirit descending upon Jesus’ disciples after he died. The Pentecost celebration is meant to be joyful, and the Dixieland style music selected will ramp up that spirit of joy and celebration.
This free event will be offered in-person in the sanctuary at LCPC and through a livestream at live.lacanadapc.org.
The program will feature Jack Lantz on piano, Rory Mazzela on clarinet, Lance Rickman on tenor saxophone, Jeff Kaye on trumpet, Ido Meshulam on trombone, Nick Morabito on bass and Dave Marks on drums. The band will improvise on a wide range of familiar Dixieland tunes and gospel music.
“This Sunday is the opportunity for people to have fun, to worship, to celebrate and do all those fun things they like to do with Dixieland music,” Lantz said.
No fee or reservations are required to enter this hourlong event. (Free will offering will be received.)
La Cañada Presbyterian Church is located at 626 Foothill Blvd. For more information, call the church office at (818) 790-6708, or visit lacanadapc.org.
