They’re big. Mighty, some might say. And they’re headed Surrey’s way this Sunday.

The Mighty Fraser Big Band, a group of 19 jazz musicians from across the Lower Mainland, will perform at Northwood United Church on April 28, as part of the ongoing Vespers in the Valley: Music for the Soul series.

Under the direction of Christian Findlay, The Mighty Fraser Big Band will showcase its diverse repertoire, including swing era dance classics from the ’30s to ’50s and modern big band arrangements.

Vespers in the Valley concerts take place on the second and fourth Sunday of each month, with upcoming performers including Hot Mammas & the Arntzens (May 12), Steve Maddock Quartet (May 26), Mighty Aphrodite Trio (June 9) and Jennifer Scott Quartet (June 23).

The concert starts at 4 p.m. The church is located at 8855 156 St. Admission is by donation.
