A Paul Winter Solstice Concert
The holiday tradition continued with Paul Winter's Winter Solstice Celebration. The extraordinary acoustics of New York's Cathedral of St. John the Divine highlighted the music of the Winter Consort with Eugene Friesen, Paul Sullivan and Brazilian percussionist Cafè leading us through the longest night of the year, with singer/guitarist Renato Braz and "Icarus" double-reed man Paul McCandless. This year's celebration featured Apache singer John-Carlos Perea and musical performances from the 2008 Grammy winning CD Crestone. John Schaefer hosted the production from Living Music and Murray Street.
