PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES, December 1, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- The Jazz Sanctuary, Philadelphia’s most innovative non-profit performing arts group, has lined up four free, live concerts in the Philly suburbs for this December, giving a “jazzy” glow to this holiday season.

The month begins tonight, with an evening of “Jazz & Joe” (live music, coffee and treats) at Yardley’s Episcopal Church of the Incarnation (1505 Makefield Road, Morrisville, PA 19067). This 90-minute performance, which begins at 7 p.m., features The Jazz Sanctuary Quintet, including James Dell’Orefice (piano), Leon Jordan Sr. (drums), Randy Sutin (vibes/percussion), Eddie Etkins (saxophone) and Alan Segal (bass), joined by special guest vocalist, Paula Johns. This concert performance is free of charge.

Another evening of “Jazz & Joe” with The Jazz Sanctuary quintet is set for Thursday, December 8 at Buckingham’s Trinity Episcopal Church (Routes 202 & 413, Buckingham, PA 18912). This concert performance, which begins at 7:30 p.m., is free of charge.

On the morning of Sunday, December 11, The Jazz Sanctuary Quintet performs during the 10 a.m. services at Main Line Unitarian Church (816 South Valley Forge Road, Devon, PA 19333).

On Thursday, December 15, “Jazz & Joe” returns to Bethlehem Baptist Church (Penllyn Pike and Dager Rd., Spring House, PA 19422) with The Jazz Sanctuary Quintet. This free, 90-minute concert performance begins at 7 p.m.

“In December, The Jazz Sanctuary will have been offering free live performances in Philadelphia and its suburbs for 11 years,” said Alan Segal, founder and Executive Director of The Jazz Sanctuary. “If all goes as planned, we will end 2022 having reached 694 live events. It’s such a wonderful milestone, and we expect to reach our 750th performance next summer. We hope to have over 75 events in the coming year, and to build on our education goals by reintroducing the Sanctuary Jam at St. Mary’s in Philadelphia, through a partnership with the University of Pennsylvania and Drexel University to serve both their communities and the residents of West Philadelphia and University City.”

Segal noted that from December 1, 2022, through January 31, 2023, The Jazz Sanctuary will match all donations made to the organization. Donations to support the mission of The Jazz Sanctuary continue to be vital to the growth of the organization as they enter their second decade.
