Harrowing Of Hell


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 the excellent acoustic spaces of our church. Click on the tabs below for further information. We hope that you will join us and experience great music in community with others.
