Sunday, August 25th
Morgan Park Presbyterian Church - Courtyard
The 4rd Annual Jazz-N-Q summer concert and picnic is sure to be an amazing event!
Our Music Director, Nicole Murray, will open with Jazz and R&B classics - collaborating with musicians from around the city in what is being called "Nicole and Friends!"
LowDown Brass Band (LDB) will headline this year's concert! Led by our former music director, Lance Loiselle - LDB deftly synthesizes the gritty sounds of Chicago with the high energy second-line street beat of the Crescent City. LDB brandishes a powerful brass frontline of trumpets, trombones, saxophones, with a funky backline of drums and sousaphone. Jazz-n-Q will feature Shane Jonas (trumpet/vocal/percussion), Chris Neal (tenor sax/ vocals / percussion), and John Barbush (drums/percussion) - all from the LDB - to perform a tribute to New Orleans music as well as some standards, Lowdown Brass Band original music, as well as a few hymns in the NoLa Style.
Morgan Park Presbyterian's Chef Carla will provide a delicious summer BBQ! Throwing burgers and franks on the grill and preparing some of our favorite New Orleans inspired summer dishes to inspire your creativity and your taste buds!
Your free will donations during this event will cover the cost of the event and support our Youth Empowerment Ministries - Teen Cooking Class, Esmond School Support, Garden Ministry and Vacation Bible School. Please contact the church to get involved in any of these special programs!
We will gather on Sunday, August 25th from 4:00pm-6:30pm in the South Courtyard of Morgan Park Presbyterian Church.
Bring a chair or a blanket to join the picnic! About half the audience space is shaded by trees, so come early or bring your own sun protection.
