Join us on Oct. 10 at 4 p.m. ET in Hendricks Chapel for a Malmgren Concert featuring special guest performers, Dan Loomis and his jazz ensemble.

Loomis, a bassist and composer, will lead the ensemble in his latest work, “Job’s Trials: A Jazz Song Cycle.” It is an evocative musical dive into an ancient, universal story exploring why bad things happen to good people.

In this fresh and thought-provoking work, the biblical story of Job is told by the character Ha Satan, whose narration is accompanied by original jazz compositions.

Guests are welcome in person or on Zoom.

 Dinner to follow

This concert will be followed by a dinner and panel discussion on the performance and the story of Job. Panelists and guests will explore what it means when bad things happen to good people through the lenses of music, faith and philosophy.

All are welcome to join at 5:30 p.m. in the Shemin Galleria, located in the Shaffer Art Building. Space for the dinner is limited. To reserve a seat, please RSVP via email to
