Jazz Eucharist at York Minster

Scroll to explore

Experience worship at York Minster like never before, with a spectacular Jazz Eucharist featuring music from Duke Ellington’s Sacred Concerts.

Described by Ellington himself as ‘the most important thing I have ever done’, the Sacred Concerts are a unique blend of jazz and choral classical music, with elements of gospel and the blues. Rarely performed, the Sacred Concerts feature big band, mixed choir and soloists who combine to produce powerful and evocative melodies celebrating spirituality and the Christian faith.

Join us on Wednesday 29 June for this special opportunity to hear music from Duke Ellington’s Sacred Concerts in the magnificent setting of York Minster in the context of worship, featuring The Clark Tracey Orchestra, the Choir of York Minster, St Peter’s School Choir & Choral Society, soloists Teuta Koco and Mark Williams, and tap dancer Junior Laniyan.

This event is for worshippers, jazz lovers, choral music fans, and anyone who enjoys great music!

The Eucharist is free to attend and no tickets are required. The Preacher will be the Archbishop of York to mark the Patronal Festival (St Peter’s Day) of York Minster and St Peter’s School, York.
