Unitarian Jazz Service

Aug 11, Sunday - 11am
Blues/Big Easy Stage

Sunday morning, join our friends at First Unitarian Church of San José for a celebration with a jazz accent. This year’s theme, “Off the Page: Imagination Unbound,” is inspired by musical stories that transport us through lyrics and sound to new spaces, places, and feelings.

In First Unitarian’s 12th annual jazz service, they will riff on this theme by celebrating jazz musicians and their versions of imagination. While the San Jose Summer Jazz Fest fills the streets of downtown, they’ll be showcasing songs such as “Just My Imagination” by The Temptations, “Moon River” composed by Henry Mancini with lyrics by Johnny Mercer, and “Imagination” written by Jimmy Van Heusen and Johnny Burke. A special collection will benefit our Progressions initiative, which helps low-income, at-promise youth in our community identify, cultivate and celebrate their gifts through music education and performance.

The church is located at 160 N 3rd St, San Jose, CA 95112.
