Fresno REALTORS, Ken and Carol Maul, thoroughly enjoy the Jazz Mass at Bethel Lutheran Church in Downtown Fresno on the first Sunday of each month.
The Jazz Mass, open to anyone in the community, is an hour-long worship service with an inspirational message from Bethel's Pastor, Steve Carlson, and lots of excellent jazz music by the Bethel Jazz Ensemble.
Leading the Bethel Jazz Ensemble is David Aus, Music Director, Composer and Pianist. Other regular members are Les Nunes on Trombone; Nye Morton, Bass; Gene Doi, Saxophone; Michael Caldwell, Trumpet and Flugel; and Gary Newmark, Drums. This month, the vocalist was Bob Bergthold. Other instrumentalists and vocalists also perform with the Ensemble at various times.
Following the Jazz Mass, there are always refreshments in the church's social hall.
The Jazz Mass is at 7:00 p.m. on the first Sunday of each month. The church is located at 187 N. Broadway in downtown Fresno.
