About this event

Since 1925, members of NYC's performing arts community have gathered together to honor and celebrate those colleagues we lost in the previous year.

This heartfelt event will include music by Claudia Dumschat and the Church of the Transfiguration Choir of Men and Boys and Girls, personal reflection, a reading of the names, and a call for one final standing ovation. We will also give thanks for our 100 years and the Little Church’s 175 years. The traditional Evensong service will be led by Father John David van Dooren.

We're honored that this year's Memorial Address will be given by director, Broadway actor, and EAG President Anthony Newfield.

This event is free and open to all.

Please arrive at The Church of the Transfiguration (also known as The Little Church Around the Corner, located at 1 E. 29th St., New York, NY 10016) by 3:00 PM ET. 

In lieu of a traditional collection during the service, please consider making a donation to EAG’s Children’s Holiday Fund, which provides a grant to EAG's performing artist clients with small children during the holiday season.
