NPR‘s Paul Winter Solstice is among its most popular holiday programs– carried by more than 300 stations last year. In the rich resonance of the Cathedral these performers, and the warmth of the audience, make this Solstice Broadcast a special one. It’s a fanfare and celebration of the Consort’s gold anniversary and welcome for the return of the Sun.

Since 1980, saxophonist Paul Winter has brought musicians from around the world together for his Winter Solstice Celebration, a festive performance marking the passing of the longest night and the return of the sun. The annual concert draws thousands of visitors to the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in Upper Manhattan. Winter’s soprano sax echoes throughout the world’s largest Gothic cathedral, leading a spectacle of music, dance and theater. As he has since its inception, WNYC’s John Schaefer hosts NPR’s broadcast. Murray Street and Living Music broadcast production team renders the dynamic portrait in sound.

Joining the Paul Winter Consort in this broadcast are the stunning Brazilian vocalist Fabiana Cozza; Renato Braz, a musician and songwriter whose calm, high tenor embodies saudade, that uniquely Brazilian sense of well-being; Procul Harum’s founder and keyboardist Gary Brooker; the roof-raising gospel star Theresa Thomasson; and renowned oboist Paul McCandless, Paul Winter’s collaborator from the original Consort.
