Jazz concert at Marion Oaks church

Fall into the rhythm of autumn with a free jazz concert featuring Charlie Remillard and the Usual Suspects 4 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 13, at Our Saviour Lutheran Church, 260 Marion Oaks Lane. A freewill offering during the concert will benefit Interfaith’s Food 4 Kids program.
The “Autumn Jazz Experience” showcases Remillard’s band, which is popular at venues around Ocala and The Villages. The band, which donates its talents to the concert, features Remillard on piano, Mike Holt on sax, Dean Millward on bass and Don Gold on drums with a special appearance by Buzz Lewis.
“Autumn Jazz Experience” is the 5th annual concert sponsored by Our Saviour Lutheran Church to benefit Food 4 Kids. More than $9,000 has been donated to Food 4 Kids through the concert program.
Food 4 Kids fills backpacks with non-perishable foods for students who may live in homes where there is inadequate food on weekends. The program began in 2004 when teachers noted that some students were not eating over the weekend. It now reaches into 32 schools, providing food for more than 1,400 students.
The concert began when church members sought a way to celebrate Pentecost, the coming of the Holy Spirit, which is marked in late spring.
Worship committee member Mary Johnson shared the tradition of a Pentecost jazz concert popular at her home church in Columbus, Ohio, and the concert was reinvented in Marion Oaks, with the goal of experiencing the joy of Pentecost through music while supporting Food 4 Kids.
This year the committee opted to move the concert to fall at the suggestion of the band, because many of its fans return north before Pentecost.
Our Saviour Lutheran Church also operates a satellite pantry site for Interfaith Emergency Services. The pantry is open Tuesdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and distributes food and hygiene items to qualifying families in need who fall below the federal poverty guidelines. It has served more than 2,000 individuals in its first year of service.
The church is centrally located in Marion Oaks, just west of the community center. Light refreshments will be served. For more information, call (362) 347-0567.
