Welcome to the 2022-2023 season of Transfigured Nights. This is our 19th season, but in many ways, it feels like a new beginning. Life has recently opened up more than in the past two seasons, which were profoundly impacted by the pandemic. We were deeply moved by the loyalty of our patrons and audience members during those two years.
This season, we can once again encourage live attendance at each program, with masks optional. We are offering refreshments and hosting receptions on designated evenings. Some changes from the past two years will remain. Services will be live-streamed, and most Transfigured Nights and Art Music concerts will be available online following the in-person events.
The season will begin with our traditional celebration of the parish’s founding, a Solemn Evensong for Holy Cross Day. Another evensong is scheduled for February honoring Candlemas. A Solemn Requiem for All Souls’ Day, which had the highest online attendance of the past two years, will return November 2. The perennially popular Advent Lessons and Carols will be offered December 4. We also, with particular pride, will be presenting concerts by the baroque ensemble Texas Camerata on October 16, and renowned organist Nathan Laube on March 26.
Finally, we promise a fun evening of song, desserts, and drinks with Hillcrest Live! in Roper Hall. Music representing several American genres will be performed by our musicians from the Transfiguration Choir to benefit the choir’s upcoming trip to the U.K.
We hope again to share with you our joy in performing some of the finest sacred and secular music ever written.
