New Year’s Eve Concert for Peace

Founded by Leonard Bernstein in 1984, the annual New Year’s Eve Concert for Peace is a signature Cathedral event, gathering old friends and new for more than a quarter of a century. The music, the candles, and the spirit of peace send audiences out into the chill January night with renewed hope for the world we share. This year's concert, hosted by Harry Smith, features Cathedral Artist in Residence Judy Collins.
