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.

Upcoming Concerts

The 2021-2022 season of Transfigured Nights begins with uncertainty, but also with joy and pride. The pandemic that we assumed would be past is still affecting us, but we look forward to a new season filled with beautiful, life-affirming music. And we look back on a past season that was successful beyond our most optimistic expectations.

When we suspended in-person Transfigured Nights and Art Music concerts last season, we hoped that people would still attend online. In fact, virtual attendance was more than four times the number of people who came in person the previous year.

We remain cautious, but we believe the high number of fullyvaccinated people in the Transfi guration community allows us to resume in-person programs, with masks, this season. Additionally, services will be live-streamed, and Transfigured Nights and Art Music concerts will be available online in weeks following the in-person events.

We begin the season, as we traditionally do, with an evensong honoring the Feast of the Holy Cross, which coincides with the 65th anniversary of the founding of our parish. A Solemn Requiem for All Souls’ Day on November 2 with choir and orchestra will follow, and a second evensong will honor Candlemas in February.

The Advent Lessons and Carols service, an annual favorite, will be offered on December 5. A Lenten Concert that includes such baroque masters as J. S. Bach and G. F. Handel is scheduled for March 27.

ART MUSIC MONDAYS

Four concerts comprise this season’s Art Music Mondays, which will feature composers ranging from traditional classics, such as Peter Tchaikovsky and Ludwig van Beethoven, to some lesser-known 20th century – Alexander Arutiunian, Alexander von Zemlinsky, and Henriette Renié.

What will not change this year is your ability to experience sacred and secular music at its most moving and profound, beautifully played by accomplished musicians who want to share their love for the art. Whether in person, or online, we invite you to enrich your life.
