Seven-time Grammy® winner Paul Winter is busy planning his “40th Annual Winter Solstice Celebration” at New York’s Cathedral of St. John the Divine as the Paul Winter Consort also celebrates its 50th anniversary year. This year’s special guest will be singer/songwriter and activist Noel Paul Stookey, best-known as a member of the famed folk music trio Peter, Paul and Mary. Stookey was the producer of the Paul Winter Consort’s first two albums, in 1968 and 1969, and has been a key mentor and collaborator during these first 50 years of the band. This event is a dazzling extravaganza of music, dance, and spectacle within the awesome space and acoustics of the world’s largest cathedral, the event is a contemporary take on ancient solstice rituals, when people felt a calling to come together on the longest night of the year to welcome the return of the sun and the birth of the new year. The Winter Solstice Celebration has evolved over the years to inhabit the entirety of the Cathedral of St. John the Divine.
