Interested in music and the environment? Get to know Paul Winter! A wonderful musician. He plays soprano sax. Early on, his band toured South America at the invitation of the U.S. State Department. He played in the Kennedy White House. He then discovered the music of Brazil, and organized a town party in Redding, Connecticut, for Charles Ives’ birthday. He formed a Consort that recorded in the Grand Canyon and played in Russia.
With the words “No Musical Experience is Required”, he has invited students of any age to join him in musical workshops.
Winter is also an environmentalist sensitive to the natural world. Fascinated by the sounds of whales and wolves, he can bring an audience to tears in listening to the lyrical songs of the humpback whale, he can guide an audience to howl en masse like a pack of wolves, he can make us feel in our hearts the lives of nature.
And every year, in the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York City, he organizes an amazing spectacle of music, dance, and lights for thousands of people.
