Jazz Vespers Series brings last Spirited Jazz of the season in Saanich

The Susannah Adams Quartet will wrap up this season’s Jazz Vespers Series.

Susannah Adams of the Susannah Adams Quartet will perform Feb. 12 at First Unitarian Church.

SAANICH — Enjoy jazz with a splash of spiritual inspiration in venues with exquisite sound and ambiance.

The Susannah Adams Quartet, Theme; Tokens of Love will take place Feb. 12 at First Unitarian Church of Victoria.

The group consists of Susannah Adams on vocals, Gary Theal on guitar, Richard Moody on violin and Sean Drabitt on bass.

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, the group will explore different  expressions of love and the traces it leaves behind.

Adams was first introduced to the world of jazz in her twenties. A refreshing combination of old fashioned innocence and self assurance,  Adams sings timeless jazz standards as if she wrote them yesterday.

Over the past decade Adams has travelled the globe to be mentored by jazz legend Sheila Jordan, whose pure and bold innovation in the world of jazz has been profound inspiration.

Born and raised in England, Adams now resides by the ocean in Victoria with her husband and two children.

She is often found singing to her ducks as she tends to her urban farm.

This will be the last performance of Spirited Jazz for the winter and spring 2017 season. Performances will continue in September.

Spirited Jazz Evenings are constructed around a theme, which is reinforced and underlined by the songs chosen and the words spoken. It is led by the musicians and Rev. Shana Lynngood, a minister whose backup career choice would be to become a jazz singer.

The last performance takes place Feb. 12 beginning at 7:00 p.m. at First Unitarian Church of Victoria.

Admission is by dontation.
