Concerts

Timeless music in the sacred spaces of Epiphany

Music often does what words cannot. It stirs emotions and challenges us to think differently about our world. Concerts give us the opportunity to experience music together, in a common space and context, in a way that maybe even builds community. 

Our concert series is brought to you by Music at Epiphany, the music ministry of Epiphany Seattle. Its mission is to deliver excellence in sacred music to enhance the well-being of every person it touches. We offer a series of world class concerts that take place in our our acoustically excellent church. Click on the tabs below for further information. We hope that you will join us and experience great music in community with others.

Stabat Mater: Mary’s Lament

Friday, March 10, 2023 | 7:30 p.m.
Open Admission. Live in the church and live-streamed on our youtube channel

Jenny Spence, soprano
José Luis Muñoz, countertenor

A 13th-century hymn portraying Mary’s distress and lament during the crucifixion of Christ, the Stabat mater text has been set by many notable composers. This program will feature settings by Marco Rosano and Giovanni Battista Pergolesi, performed by Epiphany’s own José Luis Muñoz and Jenny Spence. Pergolesi’s famous twelve-movement setting is one of the most well-known sacred works, while the Rosano is a new work meant to compliment the Pergolesi. Often performed during Lent, Pergolesi’s Stabat Mater is written for soprano and alto soloists, accompanied by strings and continuo.

Pacific MusicWorks: Murder and Mayhem

Sunday, March 26, 2022 | 2:00 pm 
Tickets: http://www.pacificmusicworks.org

Epiphany Seattle is pleased to welcome Pacific MusicWorks to our campus. The years leading up to the English Civil War in 1642 were full of riotous discord, reflected in the popular Broadside Ballads. At the same moment, William Lawes (1602-1645), the greatest English musical genius between Dowland and Purcell was producing vocal and instrumental music of unparalleled beauty. His life was cut short in battle, but his legacy of musical jewels, including the unique Harp Consorts, remains for our discovery today. Danielle Reutter-Harrah and Maxine Eilander guest star longside our PMW team of Stephen Stubbs, Tekla Cunningham, and Henry Lebedinsky.
