Join the Paul Winter Consort in an adventure in deep listening, in the extraordinary acoustics of the world's largest cathedral. The Consort roster will include Paul Winter, soprano sax; Eugene Friesen, cello; Paul McCandless, oboe, English horn, and bass clarinet; Jeff Holmes, piano, and Tim Brumfield on the Cathedral's majestic Aeolian-Skinner pipe organ.
This year, the renowned 32-voice choir Florida Singing Sons will be special guests, joining the Paul Winter Consort to perform music ranging from traditional Bulgarian chant to selections by Eric Whitacre and the sublime nocturnes of Morten Lauridsen. The Consort will also premiere new music, along with traditional pieces from their repertoire.
This sunrise concert is a unique musical journey, beginning in total darkness, with the light gradually joining the sounds, to usher in the dawning of the summer. The concert will be followed by a free tea and coffee reception in the nave of the Cathedral.
