Trinity Wall Street presens Twelfth Night Festival

Boasting an “engrossing” and “enviable variety of repertory” (New York Times), Trinity Wall Street’s Twelfth Night Festival returns to celebrate the twelve days of the nativity with a full program of mostly free events – at St. Paul’s Chapel and Trinity Church – from December 26 through January 5. The festival kicks off on December 26 with a traversal of Bach’s complete Orchestral Suites by the Trinity Baroque Orchestra, with the Trinity Scholars directed by Trinity’s Associate Organist and Chorus Master Avi Stein, who also anchors a program of concertos for organ and strings on December 29. Julian Wachner leads the Choir of Trinity Wall Street and the Trinity Baroque Orchestra in two accounts of Handel’s Saul on January 2 and 4. Following its success in the past two Twelfth Night Festivals, the Gotham Early Music Scene (GEMS) brings back its hit staging of The Play of Daniel, a 12th-century liturgical music drama depicting the story of Daniel in the lions’ den, with two shows each day on December 27 and 28. Rachmaninoff’s Vespers were a highlight of last year’s festival, when Steven Fox led the Clarion Music Society in the composer’s setting of texts from the Russian Orthodox all-night vigil ceremony. This year, the same forces reprise the choral masterpiece on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day. A cornucopia of early music and more rounds out the festival, and it draws to a triumphant close on January 5 with a performance by Roomful of Teeth, the trailblazing vocal group whose eight classically trained members have also mastered Tuvan and Inuit throat singing, yodeling, and pop techniques.
