Epiphany Tuesday Concert Series
Live Performances Each Tuesday
The Church of the Epiphany’s Tuesday Concert Series presents musical performances each Tuesday at 12:10 p.m. These 45-minute programs include solo performers and chamber music, visiting choirs from around the world, multi-cultural events, and other experiences of live music that enrich and engage our audiences. The Washington Bach Consort regularly presents concerts at Epiphany as part of their cantata series, and faculty musicians from The Levine School of Music frequently bring creative programming to the series as well.
There is no admission charged for these concerts, though we hope audience members will support the series with a goodwill donation.
We strongly recommend wearing face masks, but in accordance with diocesan and government recommendations, the Church of the Epiphany now considers masks optional. Some performers or groups, however, may require masks and/or vaccinations.
Featured in the Washington Post
The Church of the Epiphany is a beautifully vibrant acoustic space, with a Steinway 9-foot concert grand piano and 64-rank Aeolian-Skinner organ available for performances. Whether you are taking a break from your workday, visiting the city as a tourist, or making a day of lunch and a concert in downtown Washington, you are welcome.
