February 16. Led by pianist Tom McCoy, the First Presbyterian Church of Philipstown's non-denominational Jazz Vespers have been taking place on the third Saturday of each month from September through May since 2001. According to McCoy, the monthly event is not a concert-interrupted-with-a-sermon affair, as some might expect. Instead, he maintains, the event provides attendees the opportunity to hear great jazz and connect with the music's spiritual element as a way to find release from the stresses of life. Each program centers on a thought-provoking theme designed to inspire reflection. February's installment features McCoy, saxophonist and flutist Rob Schepps, bassist Cameron Brown, and guest singer Catherine Gale. 5:30pm. Free. Cold Spring.
