Season eight of the Jazz Vespers series at Church of the Advent kicks off with a rare collaboration.
Trumpet virtuoso Bruce Hurn will pair with legendary pianist and vocalist Louise Rose. They will be joined by local favourites Damian Graham on drums and Ryan Tandy on bass.
Rose arrived in Victoria in the early 1970s and fell in love with the capital city. Since then she’s offered the music scene her skills as a versatile pianist, vocalist, recording artist, composer, motivational speaker, choral conductor, accompanist, teacher, facilitator and mentor. Some of her studies were with Oscar Peterson, Duke Ellington and Leonard Bernstein.
The jazz vespers performance runs at 7 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 16 at Church of the Advent, 510 Mt. View Ave.
