For almost two decades, Murray Street has made Paul Winter's Winter Solstice Celebration a holiday tradition on NPR stations around the country.  Each December, saxophonist Paul Winter gathers his Consort and musicians from around the globe assemble in The Cathedral of St. John the Divine, to celebrate the coming of the light.

Past artists to join Paul Winter through this night include: Irish piper Davy Spillane, Grateful Dead drummer Mickey Hart, folksinger Susan Osborn, and the legendary Pete Seeger.

High-resolution photos of the Winter Solstice Celebration are available.

John Schaefer, host of The Winter Solstice Celebration since its inception, is familiar to listeners from WNYC’s daily “Soundcheck” and “New Sounds."

The broadcast is produced by Murray Street for National Public Radio and Living Music. For broadcast information contact programservices@npr.org or 800-329-5380 x2830 to broadcast.
