2021-2022 Season

APPEAR + INSPIRE

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 Gloria and Marjan Mozetich’s Flying Swans. The highlight of the program will be the World Premiere of D. J. Sparr’s The Art of Our Healers on texts by Filipino-American poet Janine Joseph, and co-commissioned in partnership with the Houston Grand Opera.  The co-commission honors all of the healthcare 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, Ēriks Ešenvalds, Imant Raminsh, and others.
