Singer Mary Dyson and the Brock Walker Trio will be the first musicians to perform in a new jazz and blues vespers series that begins Sunday, October 19 at Second Baptist Church, 9030 Clayton Rd. at McKnight.
The concert is free and open to the public, and starts at 6:00 p.m. in the church's Sanctuary of the Beatitudes. Dyson, backed by Walker on piano plus bassist Terrance Coleman and drummer Keith Robinson, will perform two sets of jazz and popular music.
Dr. Stephen Jones, pastor of the church, will offer a brief, non-sectarian inspirational message between sets, and a free-will offering will be taken to benefit the musicians. Refreshments will be served in the church’s narthex after the vespers. Attire is casual, and there is free parking in the lighted lot surrounding the church.
The church plans to continue the vespers series on the third Sunday of each month, with pianist Carolbeth True and Two Times True scheduled to perform on Sunday, November 16. For more information, visit the Second Baptist Church Web site or call 314-991-3424.
