Gallery: ‘Bending Towards Light: A Jazz Nativity’

“Bending Towards the Light: A Jazz Nativity” returned to Mount Carmel / Blessed Sacrament Thursday, Dec. 9, after a year’s absence due to the pandemic.

Utica native Leonarda Priore and her fellow musicians and artists from New York City’s Chelsea Opera, along with local singers, gave a brilliant performance of the birth of Christ as told through the medium of jazz.

Here are some images from the performance:
