transfigurednightsLet everything that has breath praise the Lord. Hallelujah!

– Psalm 150:6

The final verse of the final Psalm in the Bible seems a very apt theme for the fourteenth season of Transfigured Nights, as we “pull out all the stops” in various ways to bring you another year of enriching musical offerings, both within and apart from the context of worship.

Our season includes three Evensong services: two to frame the seriesfor Holy Cross Day in September and St. Barnabas Eve in June; and one to conclude the Sundays after the Epiphany in February. Our November offering will feature Maurice Duruflé’s beloved Requiem in its original version for organ and choir, with baritone and cello soloists. Two superb organists with connections to Transfiguration will put the Jerry D. Godwin Organ, Richards, Fowkes & Co.’s Opus 17, through the paces with recitals in October and January. The pinnacle of the season will occur in April with our Pipes & Strings evening of chamber music, and, of course, our Advent Procession of Lessons & Carols will once again prepare us for a holy celebration of the Nativity.

We hope to see you often during the coming season and that your spirit will be refreshed and renewed by these offerings. We are ever-grateful to our patrons, musicians, and volunteers who continue to make all this possible, and look forward to another year of music.

Art Music Mondays returns for its seventh season with four concerts presented  by area musicians and guests. A chamber music series in the intimate environment of Transfiguration’s Performance Hall, Art Music provides an opportunity to hear well-known and newer classical music works performed by Dallas’ finest musicians. Each event is free of admission and includes coffee and light desserts. All performances are on Monday evenings and begin at 7:30 p.m.


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!
