Valencia Christian Center will feature the smooth soulful jazz sounds of world-renowned musicians including violinist Karen Briggs, drummer Laval Belle and pianist Myron McKinley at Bella Vida on Sunday, Dec. 15, beginning at 5 p.m.

These musicians have performed all over the world and can be heard on countless recordings. The evening will be hosted by the sensationally funny Broderick E. Rice, keeping the energy high with his side-splitting Christian humor. This will be a fun evening of holiday cheer, great music, and the Christmas spirit with an inspiring word from Pastor Swanzi Saunders.

This event is so much more than a concert during the Christmas season – it’s truly a concert experience about unity, faith and hope,” states VCC’s Senior Pastor, Dr. Swanzi Saunders. “We’re highlighting the coming together of two musical art forms that have been around for many years, gospel and jazz. Both art forms were born of the deep emotional experiences of those who came before us and continue to reach the depth of our souls today. To add to the joy of the evening, accomplished comedian and musical Billboard topper, Broderick E. Rice, will entertain us with his genius in humor,” says Pastor Swanzi.

Portions of the proceeds will go towards the church’s scholarship fund which seeks to aid students in accomplishing their educational and career goals. Tickets are on sale now. General Admission is $25. Seniors and Students $20. Parking is free. Refreshments and beverages will be sold. Childcare will be offered for a nominal fee.
