Come and enjoy the 39th annual Winter Solstice Celebration at St. John the Divine on Dec. 20, 21, and 22.
The 10-piece Paul Winter Consort will be joined by powerhouse gospel singer Theresa Thomason, the 25 dancers and drummers of the Forces of Nature Dance Theatre, and special guests. This event has become New York’s favorite holiday spectacular.
A dazzling extravaganza of music and dance within the awesome space and acoustics of the world’s largest cathedral, the event is a contemporary take on ancient solstice rituals, when people felt a calling to come together on the longest night of the year to welcome the return of the sun and the birth of the new year.
