The Jazz Sanctuary

PHILADELPHIA, PA — Philadelphia’s most unique performing arts non-profit, The Jazz Sanctuary, has three free, live concert performances in the suburban Philadelphia area, including Yardley, Wayne, and Malvern, this month.

“The Jazz Sanctuary will reach 750 live performances since the organization’s founding in 2011, and we will have multiple celebrations of that milestone this fall at Main Line Unitarian Church, Gloria Dei (Old Swedes’) Episcopal Church, Trinity Episcopal Church Buckingham and Bethlehem Baptist Church,” said Alan Segal, Founder and Executive Director of The Jazz Sanctuary. “Shortly, we will announce all the details of those events, where we hope to celebrate with so many of our loyal audience and supporters, as well as attract some new followers and friends.”

The August 2023 slate of events begins tonight, August 3 with an evening of The Jazz Sanctuary’s popular “Jazz & Joe,” featuring live music, coffee and treats, in Yardley at Episcopal Church of the Incarnation (1505 Makefield Rd., Morrisville, PA 19067). This 90-minute performance, which begins at 7 p.m., features The Jazz Sanctuary Quintet, including James Dell’Orefice (piano), Leon Jordan Sr. (drums), Randy Sutin (vibes/percussion), Eddie Etkins (saxophone) and Alan Segal (bass). This concert performance is free of charge.

On Friday, August 11, The Jazz Sanctuary Quartet, including Eddie Etkins, Chick Sperell, David Kenney, and Alan Segal, will perform at Our Lady of the Assumption (35 Old Eagle School Rd., Wayne, PA 19087) in an after-services one-hour concert beginning at 8 p.m.

The Jazz Sanctuary returns to the Main Line later that week, on Wednesday, August 16, for an outdoor (inside in the event of rain) evening concert at St. Peter’s Church in the Great Valley (2475 St. Peter’s Rd., Malvern, PA 19355). A quintet from The Jazz Sanctuary, including Jordan Sr., Etkins, Sutin, Segal and Dennis Fortune (piano) will be performing at this free concert.
