YPC Participates in New York’s Oldest Christmas Tradition

Sunday, December 17 at 3:30 pm

The Young People’s Chorus of New York City conducted by YPC Assistant Conductor Maria Peña returns to the Church of the Intercession to sing the musical prelude in its annual holiday candlelight reading of Clement Clarke Moore’s “Twas the Night Before Christmas” (A Visit from Saint Nicholas). Following the reading, audience members can join in a lantern procession and wreath-laying ceremony at Clement Moore’s mausoleum at Trinity Church, across the street from The Church of the Intercession, a tradition that began over 100 years ago in 1911.

The performance and reading are free and open to the public.
