Renee Bailey will be guest vocalist
The final Jazz Vespers of the season takes place at 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 16, at the First Presbyterian Church of Philipstown. The season typically ends in May but that performance this year will be replaced by a benefit concert featuring John Cimino and a group of young artists.
Music director and pianist Tom McCoy has recruited Renee Bailey as the guest vocalist, Cameron Brown as bassist, guitarist Tony DiPaolo and drummer T. Xiques, son of founding Jazz Vespers member Ed Xiques. Rob Scheps will be featured on flute and soprano saxophone. The performance is free but donations are welcome. A wine and cheese reception will follow. The church is located at 10 Academy St. in Cold Spring.
