Church of the Epiphany
We open our season with a fall concert of a cappella and accompanied masterpieces of the choral tradition in celebration of our return to in-person music-making. The program includes strikingly beautiful new works from the Canadian choral tradition including the Washington premieres of Timothy Corlis's Missa Pax and Marjan Mozetich's Flying Swans. The highlight of the program will be the Washington Premiere of D.J. Sparr’s The Healers on texts by Filipino-American poet Janine Joseph, and co-commissioned in partnership with the Houston Grand Opera. The commission honors all the healthcare workers and other essential workers who continue to serve our society so valiantly. The concert will also feature Benjamin Britten's masterpiece Hymn to St Cecilia, as well as beautiful works by Virgil Thomson, Eriks Ešenvalds, Imant Raminsh, and others.
