The music and culture of Jazz derive from the life of African Americans whose historical context was both immensely difficult and, at the same time, spiritually powerful. On May 11, all are invited to learn and to enjoy a medley of lecture and performance that will take you into the spiritual power of this amazing music and the history that lies behind it. All welcome; light refreshments provided; discussion to follow; nursery available for young children.
Bill Edgar is Professor of Apologetics at Westminster Theological Seminary. He is also a talented, professional Jazz musician, performing throughout the greater-Philadelphia region.
