The people of James Bay United Church have opened the sanctuary of the beautiful heritage building at 511 Michigan on Tuesday evenings for the benefit of the local community.

Tuesday September 3rd 7PM: Karel Roessignh Trio
Celebrated pianist Karel Roessignh has been a staple of the local jazz scene for over 3 decades.  A player of unique sensibilities and enigmatic composition, Karel's playing is joyous, imaginative and compelling.  Karel has written music for film, new-age albums, jazz trio and quartet as well as his most recent album "Birdsong" in which he crafts an album worth of music from a cross-counrty trip collecting bird song and using that as the jumping off point for stunningly original and beautiful music.  In this trio performance, Karel reunites with long-time collaborator Kelby MacNayr and regular bassist Ryan Tandy for an evening of unique arrangements and composition.
