Upcoming Events > Transfigured Nights
Transfigured Nights continues in the Anglican tradition of enriching the lives of the people of God through art and music, whether in the liturgical rites of the church, in concerts, or other programs. Striving to create and host unique offerings of quality featuring the ﬁnest sacred and secular music, we utilize the talents of parish musicians and local artists, as well as present concerts by national and international performers. The series offers musical experiences to Transﬁguration parishioners and serves as an outreach to those in the broader community.
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.
ART MUSIC MONDAYS
Now in its 12th season, Transfigured Nights’ chamber music series – Art Music – under the direction of Gayane Manasjan Fullford, has brought its audience some of classical music’s most beloved works, and introduced listeners to newer and less well-known pieces. Each composition is performed in its entirety by some of the fi nest musicians in the region.
Presented in the intimate environment of Transfi guration’s Performance Hall, Art Music programs are free and include coffee and light desserts. All performances are on Monday evenings and begin at 7:30 pm.
