Ignatian Social Justice
Time: Thursday, January 17 at 7:00 pm
Location: Conference Room


Ignatian Social Justice is a ministry of the Church of St. Ignatius Loyola made up of parishioners committed to:
(1) raising awareness of current Catholic social teaching; and
(2) advocating for social justice on timely and underappreciated issues.

The volunteer group embraces the responsibility to inform, engage, and mobilize parishioners to promote social justice in our local community. The ministry divides its time between advocacy and promoting awareness through a dialog with local leaders on social justice issues. The ministry is especially committed to pursuing issues and perspectives that would not otherwise be apparent to St. Ignatius parishioners.

All are welcome.

Passion for Bach and Coltrane
Time: Friday, February 08 at 8:00 pm
Location: Church

Tickets and complete info: https://www.showclix.com/event/passion-for-bach-and-coltrane

Featuring: Imani Winds | Harlem Quartet |  A.B. Spellman, Poet and Orator |  composed by Jeff Scott

PASSION is a work for wind quintet, string quartet, piano, double bass, percussion and orator. It was inspired by the poetry of A.B. Spellman, from his book of poems Things I Must Have Known. The poetry speaks to the musical mastery of J.S. Bach, John Coltrane and Gonzalo Rubalcaba, as well as religion and mortality.

I have long desired to set poetry to music and was particularly drawn to that of A.B. Spellman because of his strong references to both jazz and classical music as well as the question of faith. The tradition of Passions or musical settings of the Gospel narratives dates to the 4th Century. Bach wrote several though only two have survived. Here the premise of the Passion is explored rather than the actual Biblical accounts. Orated poems in lieu of the intoned Gospel. Bach, Coltrane, Rubalcaba and Spellman in lieu of the traditional Biblical characters.

Though the work is original, it is anchored by this poetry with reference to two significant works by Bach and Coltrane, The Goldberg Variations and A Love Supreme, works written at the pinnacle of their maturation. Passion explores the influence of spirituality on the art of these masters and asks the inevitable question, what if J.S. Bach and John Coltrane might chance to meet? It challenges the performer and listener to be comfortable with the seemingly polar opposites of the musical spectrum presented as equals.—Jeff Scott
