Harrowing Of Hell

Music Performances

Timeless music in the sacred spaces of Epiphany

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

Music is a core strength of Epiphany, and we strive to uphold choral excellence in all of our worship offerings. Our Music Guild was created to uphold that excellence. It also sponsors world class concerts for the community.

We hope that you will join us for a concert or choral service, and experience great music in community with others.

Our Performances Series

Due to COVID-19, our community concerts and choral offerings are being offered virtually. Tune in to our livestreamed musical offerings, like Choral Evensong, every week — and see below or check our calendar for more information about the 2020-2021 season.

Choral Evensong

Sung at the close of day in Cathedrals and churches throughout the world, Choral Evensong is a service of Evening Prayer, derived from the ancient offices of Vespers and Compline. The choir sings the traditional evening prayers of the church that have been offered for centuries, while the congregation listens, joins in the hymns, and adds their own prayers to those of the choir. It is an opportunity for peaceful meditation in the midst of our busy lives. 

At Epiphany, Choral Evensong is sung three times each week. 

  • Sundays at 5:00 p.m.
  • Tuesdays and Thursdays at 5:30 p.m.

Due to COVID-19, these services are currently livestreamed by a small ensemble. Check out our Evensong playlist on youtube for a full archive of services.

 

Community Concerts

All concerts for the 2020-2021 season will be offered virtually on our youtube channel until such time that we can safely offer in-person performances. Please see below for information on upcoming performances.
