Acclaimed choral conductor Harold Rosenbaum (founder of the New York Virtuoso Singers) will lead early music singers on a walk from the Metropolitan Museum, through Central Park, to the Cathedral of St. John the Divine on Amsterdam Avenue and 112th Street.
Singers will carry lanterns through Central Park while singing medieval melodies once sung along the pilgrimage route to Santiago de Compostela.
All singers, from absolute beginners to early music specialists, are invited to join. No rehearsal is necessary; however, please download and print the scores and bring them to the event.
The walk will commence on the steps of the Metropolitan Museum at 6 pm and ends at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine at 7 pm.
