Jazz Vespers with Bill Carter Workshop (Sat. Oct 10, 2015 9:30 am)

Contact Info:

Westminster Presbyterian Church
1420 W. Moss Avenue
Peoria, IL

Bill Carter is a life-long lover of jazz and a jazz pianist par excellence! Bill spent his undergraduate days as a music major at the State University of N.Y. at Binghamton, following his passion for this uniquely American musical form.


After graduation, he followed a call to the Presbyterian ministry and received his M. Div. degree from Princeton Seminary. He is the Pastor of the First Presbyterian Church in Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania. For years Bill struggled with the melding of his Christian faith and the music he loves. Out of this struggle was born the quartet known as PresbyBop. The group has been an outlet for Bill to explore a deep faith through music. The group has toured across the northeast, and were featured at the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (USA). Bill comes without his quartet, but will join with several outstanding Peoria jazz players to give us an evening of sacred jazz. It may be sacred, but it’s still jazz!


His Jazz Vespers on Friday will be followed on Saturday morning at 9:30 a.m. with a workshop entitled, “Swing a New Song Unto the Lord”. Musicians and listeners are all welcome to hear Bill speak about his work and demonstrate his gifts!
