Tue 12/21, 9:00am

Celebrate the return of the sun - and the warming of the heart with Paul Winter's Winter Solstice Celebration. Seven-time Grammy winning saxophonist/bandleader Paul Winter and his 10-piece consort present a dazzling extravaganza of music, dance, and spectacle within the awesome space and acoustic of the world’s largest cathedral and the glorious Cathedral Pipe Organ. 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. John Schaefer hosts.
