Winter Solstice Celebration
Date & Time
Every December since 1980, seven-time Grammy® winner Paul Winter and his colleagues have celebrated the Winter Solstice at New York’s Cathedral of St. John the Divine. This year, the annual event goes online in a unique video presentation. The theme is “Everybody Under the Sun;” the video features the Paul Winter Consort, gospel singer Theresa Thomason, Abdel Salaam’s Forces of Nature Dance Theatre with their 25 dancers and drummers, Russia’s 10-member Dmitri Pokrovsky Ensemble, and guest singers like Procol Harum’s Gary Brooker; singer/songwriter and activist Paul Stookey, (of Peter, Paul and Mary); Latin Grammy-winning Brazilian musician Ivan Lins; leading interpreter of Afro-Brazilian music Fabiana Cozza, and many others.
This one-of-a-kind video, featuring many pieces that have never before been seen outside the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, will premiere, on demand, at 7:00 p.m. EST, on Friday, December 18 on the Solstice Concert website HERE.
