About Evensong Ensemble
Evensong Ensemble was formed in Ottawa, Canada in 2016 as a quartet and then as a quintet to bridge the gap between the spontaneous and uplifting power found in the contemporary concert experience with jazz-gospel-pop-folk-funk styles and the progressive theology in the congregations of United Church of Canada. Embracing a focus on “Open Heart, Open Mind,” we place the emphasis on the power of music, love, and community to empower us to overcome our challenges. Designed to be engaging, inclusive, and spiritually focused, the program consists of a mix of popular music styles, secular and sacred, as well as more recently composed music, all with a jazz spirit and spontaneity. The music is interspersed by short, inclusive and progressive reflections that engage with an audience wherever we are on our spiritual journeys.
