As part of its year-long 50th anniversary celebration, the United Church of Christ in Bayberry hosts a free jazz concert and vespers service at 5 p.m. Sunday Nov. 21 in its sanctuary at 215 Blackberry Road in the town of Clay.
The event will feature Sammy Award-winning vocalist Ronnie Leigh backed by pianist Barry Blumenthal leading a quartet drawn from the ranks of the CNY Jazz Orchestra.
The concert theme is "Grace and Gratitude," and music will range from standards to hymns all arranged in the jazz style. The tunes will be interspersed with meditative readings by the Rev. Mark Lawson
