St. John's Episcopal announces first concert in series

KING WILLIAM – St. John's Episcopal Church proudly announces the inaugural concert in the Concerts at Old St. John's Series. Please join us on October 20, 2013 at 4 pm at Historic St. John's to hear the David Esleck Trio in concert. J

oined by jazz masters Jason Jenkins on bass and drummer Keith Willingham, pianist David Esleck is a favorite of jazz fans who enjoy both traditional and forward-looking music. The grand tradition of jazz piano - Scott Joplin, Duke Ellington, Oscar Peterson, Bud Powell, Bill Evans, and many more - are filtered through Esleck's mind and fingers, sprinkled with a little Beethoven, Debussy, Ives, Bartòk, Reich, and even a little Billy Preston, Keith Emerson, or Jerry Lee Lewis.

Built in 1734, Historic St. John's is a beautiful 18th-century parish church located on Route 30, 10 miles north of West Point. The interior of the church has been completely restored through the efforts of the St. John's Church Restoration Association, and the stuccoed brick walls provide excellent acoustics for music concerts.

Please come and hear this concert to experience this outstanding historic building, both visually and aurally. Tickets are $13 in advance, $15 at the door and can be ordered through an online form at oldstjohns.org or by calling 804-843-4594. Tickets may also be purchased at West Point Pharmacy, West Point Antiques and King William Pharmacy
