Paul Winter's 38th Annual Winter Solstice Celebration

9:30 am

Pre-registration/pre-payment is required. LEARN MORE

Paul Winter's Winter Solstice celebrates the spirit of the holidays with the extraordinary acoustics of NY's greatest Cathedral, St. John the Divine. This multi media event features musicians, vocalists and the 25 dancers and drummers of the Forces of Nature Dance Theatre. A dazzling extravaganza of music and dance, these performances offer a contemporary take on ancient solstice rituals, when people gathered together on the longest night of the year to welcome the return of the sun and the birth of the New Year. Special guests will include the critically acclaimed Pletenitsa Balkan Choir, directed by Christiane Karam. The 15-voice Pletenitsa Balkan Choir will collaborate with the Paul Winter Consort throughout the autumn, creating new music for this year’s Winter Solstice Celebration as well as integrating the Consort's traditional music with music from their repertoire. Founded by Christiane Karam in 2011 as a forum for exploring the choral and folk traditions of the Balkans, the Caucasus, the Middle East, and parts of the Mediterranean, the Pletenitsa Balkan Choir is primarily a women's chorus, with some music that incorporates male voices. It includes and welcomes singers from all over the world, serving as a platform for cultural exchange and a context for coming together to celebrate the beauty and spirit that connect us all. The Pletenitsa Balkan Choir has shared the stage with a diversity of artists, including Zulal, Juliana Svetlichnya, Mario Frangoulis, José Mercé, Javier Limon, Vadim Neselovskyi, Gary Burton, Tigran Hamasyan, and Binka Dobreva, a revered soloist with the internationally renowned Bulgarian folk ensemble, Le Mystère des Voix Bulgares. Upon hearing and singing with what would become the Pletenitsa Balkan Choir , Ms. Dobreva baptized the group with the name "Pletenitsa," ("braid”), saying she was inspired by the intricate melding of cultures and the tight bond she felt among the singers.
