‘Jazz in the Sanctuary’ Concert Season to Conclude March 11 with Dave Proulx and David Rosin
The fourth season of Fountain Street Church’s Jazz in the Sanctuary concert series will conclude on Sunday, March 11, at 3:00pm. The series pairs the spontaneous wonder of jazz with the acoustic and architectural beauty of the century-old sanctuary in downtown Grand Rapids. Robin Connell, series host and staple of the West Michigan jazz scene, will welcome pianist Dave Proulx and bassist David Rosin for over an hour
of exciting music and light conversation.
Connell received West Michigan Jazz Society’s 2017 “Musician of the Year” award for her
widespread collaboration with area jazz artists and her continuing work on the Jazz in the Sanctuary series. Originally from Grand Rapids, Proulx is the pastor of Battle Creek Community Church and an accomplished musician in the realms of worship, jazz, and beyond.
His brother, John Proulx, is perhaps the better-known jazz pianist in Michigan, but the two benefited equally from growing up in the same musically rich household and continue to share their passion for jazz piano. Rosin, jazz bassist and educator, grew up in the metro Detroit area and currently resides in East Lansing. He studied under the state’s great bassists at Western Michigan University and Michigan State University and has performed extensively throughout the Midwest. In 1997, he toured Australia with the Andrew Speight Quartet and recorded an album that won an Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) music award for “Best Jazz Album”.
General admission to the March 11 concert is $10 online or at the door. College students may show ID for $5 off. Tickets and additional information are available at fountainstreet.org/jazz.
