RISE & SHINE & CELEBRATE THE SUMMER SOLSTICE AT NEW YORK’S CATHEDRAL OF ST. JOHN THE DIVINE WITH PAUL WINTER “This event is our musical welcome to the summer. Summer Solstice is one of the great turning points of the year, when the sun is at its peak and the days abound with the promise of life’s fullness. My dream, with this sunrise celebration, is to offer an experience of this resonance, in the mystical ambience of these early morning hours, through a deep listening journey within the awesome space of this largest cathedral in the world. Our music begins in total darkness, and proceeds in a continuous flow, emanating from different places in the Cathedral. Gradually, as the great stained glass windows begin to illuminate, the light joins the sound to carry us into the first dawning of the summer.” - Paul Winter **DEPART FROM LITCHFIELD COMMUNITY CENTER AT 1:00 A.M.** $65.00 PP ALL-INCLUSIVE (INCLUDES LCC VAN TRANSPORTATION AND GENERAL SEATING) *PAYMENT RESERVES SEAT* Seats are limited.
