    Seven-time Grammy®-winning saxophonist, composer and bandleader Paul Winter returns with one of New York City’s most beloved holiday events, Paul Winter’s Winter Solstice Celebration, at The Cathedral of St. John the Divine, located at 1047 Amsterdam Avenue at 112th Street. The music of Brazil will be a special focus of this year’s event, and feature singers Renato Braz and Fabiana Cozza, a samba band, and Brazilian chorus, along with the Paul Winter Consort, gospel singer Theresa Thomason, and the 25 dancers and drummers of the Forces of Nature Dance Theatre.

    Now in its 36th year, Paul Winter’s Winter Solstice Celebration is a dazzling extravaganza of music and dance, 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.

    Performances take place on Thursday, December 17 at 8:00 p.m., Friday, December 18 at 8:00 p.m., and Saturday, December 19 at 2:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., at The Cathedral of St. John the Divine located at 1047 Amsterdam Avenue at 112th Street, Manhattan.
