G.R. church to feature local holiday jazz

HE-jazzThe ensemble MacNaughton Boulevard, led by Bostwick Lake Church music director Roger MacNaughton, adds a musical twist to the holidays by performing jazz-inspired carols at Grand Rapids’ First United Methodist Church Jazz Vespers on December 19. Musical selections at the 6:00 p.m. service include traditional favorites such as “Angels We Have Heard on High,” “Away in a Manger,” and “The Holly and the Ivy.” Joining pianist MacNaughton are Charlie Hoats (bass), Mike Hyde (guitar) and Steve Anzivino (drums).

Additionally, Grand Rapids Symphony cellist Steve VanRavenswaay joins MacNaughton as the piano/cello duo MacRaven performs “Christmas Eve” from their first CD release Winter Canvas.

First United Methodist Church is located at 227 Fulton Street, Grand Rapids. Parking is free in two church lots located off Barclay Avenue NE at the corner of Fulton. A free-will offering will be taken.
