CELEBRATED JAZZ DRUMMER AND BAND LEADER WINARD HARPER TAKES THE STAGE AT CATHEDRAL ARTS LIVE!

Cathedral Arts Live is thrilled to welcome celebrated jazz drummer Winard Harper to the stage Friday, October 18 at 7 pm. Along with singer-songwriter duo Visen to open the show.

A virtuoso on the drum set and the balafon, the West African equivalent of the marimba, Harper is a sought-after collaborator at home and abroad. A hometown favorite in New York, Harper also has a devoted following in Jersey City, where he runs the “Meet the Artist” Series at Moore’s Lounge each Sunday. www.winardharperjazz.com

Visen means lullaby in Danish. Danish-American singer-songwriter Ari Jaye Alexander and award-winning jazz guitarist Cecil Alexander started performing and writing together while attending Berklee College of Music; eventually, Visen came into existence as Cecil would pair his intricate guitar compositions with Ari’s confessional songwriting. Their newest single “Counting Sheep“ came out at the end of August, reflecting a new, more romantic sound from the now husband and wife duo. www.visenband.com

Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 at the door. Hot food and cold beverages available for purchase. Doors open at 7 pm.

ABOUT CATHEDRAL ARTS LIVE AND GRACE CHURCH VAN VORST:
The oldest Episcopal church in Jersey City, Grace Church Van Vorst, founded in 1847, has a vibrant past and a promising future. In addition to being a welcoming and affirming home to a diverse set of congregants, Grace provides vital services to some of the most vulnerable citizens of Jersey City, offering a breakfast program to the hungry and a weekday program for seniors.

Building on its reputation as a fulcrum for talented artists of all kinds in Jersey City, Grace Church Van Vorst launched Cathedral Arts Live as an extension of the already successful and vibrant Cathedral Arts Festival, founded in 1989.
