7 PM - 8:30 PM

Cathedral Choir & Orchestra of St. John the Divine

Kent Tritle, Bryan Zaros & Jie Yi, conductors

Handel’s Water Music Suite in D kicks off this festive and inspiring concert. Joel Thompson’s riveting Seven Last Words of the Unarmed and David Hurd’s When Night Fell address deep issues of our time. A medley of Asian composers will include Chen Yi, with our choir singing in Chinese! Jamet Pittman will lead us all in singing “This Little Light of Mine” after J.S. Bach’s timeless setting of Dona Nobis Pacem from his Mass in B Minor. Join us as we ring in the New Year of 2022 with optimism!
