Founded by Leonard Bernstein in 1984, the annual New Year's Eve Concert for Peace is a signature Cathedral event. Led by Kent Tritle, Director of Cathedral Music, this year's concert includes William Boyce's Symphony No. 1 in B-flat. Soloist Sidney Outlaw joins the choir for Robert Convery's powerful setting of Martin Luther King, Jr.'s I have a dream, followed by the New York premiere of Wayne Oquin's Allelulia. There is also music by Mozart, J.S. Bach, and special guests throughout the evening. And of course, the Cathedral Choir's own Jamet Pittman leads the audience and invites them to join in with This little light of mine as we light candles to welcome the new year with hope, joy, and affirmation.

General admission seats are free and open to the public on the night of the show. Reserved seats are on sale now.
