2016-17 SEASON APPRECIATION
As another season of Transfigured Nights has drawn to a close, I would like to thank all of you who made our thirteenth year of musical offerings such a success!
To our patrons who fully-funded this ambitious year: three events with chamber orchestra or brass ensemble, five Art Music Mondays, three evensong services, Advent Lessons & Carols, and a concert by guest organist Jonathan Ryan. Your generosity is truly overwhelming, and has allowed us to bring so much great music to life these past years.
To our attendees: your faithful presence at services and concerts, and devotion to fine classical music for the church and chamber hall inspires us to do more than we have imagined possible.
To the Transfiguration Choir: for the hours of rehearsal and energy you give above and beyond that required for Sunday and Holy Day liturgies.
To the members of the Transfigured Nights Executive Committee, Alan Dunlop, Executive Director: for your assistance in producing the 14 events of 2016-2017, especially to those who are completing three years of service on the board: Laurel Brewster, Bart Stockton – our most-conscientious treasurer, and David Reece – coordinator of receptions, including the very successful Back from Bristol.
If you have never attended a Transfigured Nights event, I hope that you will make it a priority to join us at least once during the upcoming season. It is well-worth your while!
-Joel Martinson, Director of Music & Organist
