PORT ANGELES — The eight-piece Peninsula College Jazz Ensemble, featuring vocalist Robbin Eaves, will bring the music of Curtis Mayfield, Benny Golson, Daniel Barry and Thelonious Monk to church Sunday.

This is the fifth annual Jazz Worship Service at St. Andrew's Episcopal Church, 510 E. Park Ave., replete with trumpets, saxophones, trombone, drums, bass and guitar at 10 a.m. Eaves, a classically trained singer, will render Mayfield's “People Get Ready,” the 1965 song given a new arrangement by Peninsula College music professor David Jones.

Admission is by donation and everyone is welcome at this Episcopal service, to include Mayfield's “People Get Ready,” sung by Eaves in Peninsula College music professor David Jones' arrangement.

Next month, Eaves and the ensemble will get together again for the spring concert at Maier Hall, the intimate venue at Peninsula College, 1502 E. Lauridsen Blvd. This one will start at 7 p.m. Tuesday, June 3, and roam from Duke Ellington and Dizzy Gillespie to Antonio Carlos Jobim, Chuck Mangione, Thad Jones and beyond.
