After a break for the holidays, the St. Louis Jazz and Blues Vespers Series will resume its second season with a concert by singer Mardra Thomas (pictured) and pianist Reggie Thomas at 6 p.m. on Sunday, January 17 at the Second Baptist Church, 9030 Clayton Rd. (at McKnight).
The concert is free and open to the public, and free parking is available on the lighted lot adjacent to the church. During the intermission, Second Baptist Church pastor Dr. Stephen Jones will offer a brief, non-sectarian message, and a free-will offering will be taken to benefit the musicians. Refreshments will be served in the church’s narthex after the vespers.
The next concert in the series will feature saxophonist Ray Vollmar and singer Deborah Sharn on Sunday, February 21. For more information, visit the Vespers' Web site or call 314-991-3424.
