Twelfth Night Festival

 

This winter’s Twelfth Night Festival, subtitled "Time's Arrow," juxtaposes early and contemporary music with a full program of events December 26–January 6 at St. Paul's Chapel and Trinity Church. All events are free except for Handel's Messiah and The Play of Daniel performances.

Music of the medieval, Renaissance, and Baroque periods rubs shoulders with music by living composers, including premieres by Daniel Felsenfeld, David Lang, Tarik O'Regan, and Gerald Busby. The festival features Trinity's own ensembles, the Grammy®-nominated Choir of Trinity Wall Street and Trinity Baroque Orchestra, resident contemporary music orchestra NOVUS NY, and the newly formed semi-professional choir Downtown Voices, as well as distinguished guests including TENET, Clarion Music Society, Gotham Early Music Scene, and New York Baroque Incorporated, whose climactic Festival Concert will be performed on both period and modern instruments.
