The 31st annual Winter Solstice Celebration (December 16-18, 2010) at the magnificently resonant Cathedral of St. John the Divine continues the age-old lineage of solstice festivities. The edgy energy of category-defying Armenian singer and percussionist Arto Tuncboyaciyan and the stirring rhythms of the Forces of Nature Dance Theatre feed the Paul Winter Consort’s vision of an all-embracing human moment. This year’s solstice celebration will see the debut of a collaborative piece composed with the special guests, as well as the live premiere of selections from the Consort’s latest album, Miho: Journey to the Mountain.
The Consort includes Paul Winter, soprano sax, double-reed master Paul McCandless, Eugene Friesen on cello, keyboardist Paul Sullivan, percussionists Jamey Haddad and Bill Cahn and Tim Brumfield on the Cathedral’s pipe organ.
