Nine years ago, gospel and jazz lovers attended a pair of concerts at Saint David’s Episcopal Church, which both sold out. Apparently, they didn’t get enough, because it is going to be done again on Saturday, Sept. 15 and Sunday, Sept. 16, starting at 4 p.m. each day.

The reason for the concerts is to raise funds to aid the Friday Harbor Food Bank and the San Juan Island Family Resource Center. Admission will be by donation, with a minimum suggested donation of $10 per person or $20 per family.

The concerts will feature singers Jill Urbach and Angel Michaels along with Rich Barker and members of the San Juan Jazz Quintet and a gospel choir directed by Jim Collado. As the seating capacity is limited, it is advisable to arrive early. Saint David’s is located at the corner of Park Street and Marguerite Place in Friday Harbor.
