Concert at The Church of the Ascension, Fifth Ave at Tenth Street, NYC

Featuring Young Artist Soloist Liv RedpathTrumpeter Kevin Cobb and the U.S. Premiere of 'Hands' by Sorel Artist Jocelyn Hagen

Just a few blocks from the Christmas tree under Washington Square Arch, the artistically revered Church of the Ascension is never more beautiful than at Christmas, when it is filled with evergreens and song. Built in 1840, its interior design, overseen by architect Stanford White, includes art by Louis Saint-Gaudens and John LaFarge. The Voices of Ascension chorus evokes Christmases past and present, performing traditional carols and festive works in an intimate, candlelit setting - including the U.S. premiere of Jocelyn Hagen’s Hands. Joyous, gorgeous, and exuberant, this is music that was written for everyone to enjoy. VoA is joined by a young star vocal soloist and trumpet virtuoso Kevin Cobb, and the audience will be invited to join in singing much-loved carols.
