The Sharp Five Jazztet, from left: Mellad Abeid, David Fague and Fr. Gary Uhlenkott, S.J., will perform at the chapel of the Monastery of St. Gertrude on Sunday, September 26 at 2:30. This free concert is just one feature of a whole afternoon of events that celebrate the launch of the Spirituality and Arts program at the Monastery. “In the spirit of St. Benedict, who encouraged expression of artistic gifts in the monastic community, the Benedictine Sisters of Cottonwood, Idaho seek to integrate spirituality and the arts,” reads the opening line to the mission statement of the new program. The day begins at 12:30 p.m. with Mass in a jazz setting. At 1:30, art displays open at Spirit Center and the Historical Museum. The free performance of The Sharp Five Jazztet begins at 2:30, followed by a reception and continued exhibits.“Working with others,” continues the mission statement, “we hope to foster an artistic environment and be present to the many manifestations of beauty in our world and to nurture new artistic possibilities.” These new “possibilities” include a premier season that features not only the launch events on September 26, but also the Fall lecture series at the Historical Museum and a chapel candlelight concert of the music of Hildegard of Bingen on October 23. This concert is on the same weekend as a retreat devoted to exploring this medieval mystic’s life and work.For more information about the free jazz concert on September 26 and the rest of the premier season events, visit www.StGertrudes.org or call 208-962-2000.
