Just as Spring looks different through Vivaldi’s eyes than it does through Stravinsky’s, the winter holidays look different in beautiful New York City than they do anywhere else. A metropolitan Christmas is a special one that can’t be compared. The vast and sleepless city of eight million changes its air and becomes a little more caring, a little more loving and a little more personal than at other times. From the echoing halls and corridors of Manhattan, in the rush of day or lit up at night, any moment is a New York Moment at Christmas. This momentariness is captured eloquently and equally in the music of Bach, Mathias, Sondheim, Corigliano, Billings, and more. I wrote a piece for this concert called “Wintry and Wakeful”. My dear friend Greg Kefalas wrote the lyrics. I could not be happier by conducting my own piece among great singers and dear friends. If you are in NYC area, you should come and see this.
