World-Renowned Choral Conductor Harold Rosenbaum Leads Make Music Winter Pilgrimage in Manhattan on December 21
 
World-renowned choral conductor Harold Rosenbaum will lead a special Make Music Winter pilgrimage on Wednesday, December 21. It will leave at 6:00 PM from the front steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Fifth Avenue and E. 82nd St, and will proceed through Central Park, arriving at Cathedral of St John the Divine, Amsterdam Avenue and W. 112th St at approximately 7:00 PM. The event is sponsored by Make Music New York in cooperation with the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
 
All singers are invited to join, from absolute beginners to early music specialists — no rehearsal necessary. Music to be performed will be From the Cantigas de Santa Maria of Alfonso X El Sabio (1221–1284) and from the Llibre Vermell de Montserrat (14th century). These medieval melodies were once sung along the pilgrimage route to Santiago de Compostela.
 
The music (in downloadable PDF format) and more information about the event is available at http://makemusicny.org/parades/pilgrimage/. Bring a flashlight and print out the sheet music. A limited number of copies will be distributed for those without.
