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, on the longest day of the year.
The two great celestial milestones of the year, the Summer and Winter Solstices, are perhaps humanity’s most ancient ritual observances. People paused at these times to reflect upon the journey of life, with its trials, blessings, hopes and promise.
The first 24 installments of this annual concert tradition took place in New York’s Cathedral of St. John the Divine. In 2020 the event was moved to a livestream format due to the pandemic. This year, Paul Winter’s 26th annual Summer Solstice Celebration will take place virtually on June 19, 2021 at 4:30am Eastern Time from the loft of Paul Winter’s barn in the hills of northwest Connecticut.
