A Paul Winter Solstice Concert

Friday, December 21 at 8:00 p.m.

Once again on the darkest night of the year, NPR presents the Illuminating Tradition From New York's Cathedral of St. John the Divine. The 32nd annual Paul Winter Solstice Celebration, featuring gospel singer Theresa Thomason, Mbira Master Chris Berry and The Paul Winter Consort with Paul McCandless, Eugene Friesen, Paul Sullivan, Eliot Wadopian, Jamey Haddad, Tim Brumfield and the glorious Cathedral Pipe Organ.

The performance brings traditional holiday favorites including JS Bach and American gospel -- and welcomes new sounds from as far as Zimbabwe and Brazil -- and as near as the mountains of North Carolina. WNYC'S John Schaefer hosts this NPR holiday broadcast favorite.
