Join us for a special Winter celebration of our ancestors and the traditions that unite us. Learn about traditional ancestral veneration practices across cultures, open your heart to the wisdom of the Elder Circle, and appreciate performances and presentations that remember, revere, and celebrate those that have passed on. This program is led by Yoruba Priestess Iya Keturah and will include a special Masquerade dance by members of her Ile (West African Traditional Spiritual Community), as well as presentations from members of other ethnic and spiritual communities .
Celebrate the season with festive songs, classic carols, and holiday favorites from around the world performed by Thea Tullman Moore, Annie Gill, Elizebeth Barnes, Michael Manganiello, Jennifer Simone Smith, José Miguel Sacin, pianist Patricia McKewen Amato, and cellist Ismar Gomes.
Masks and proof of vaccination are required. For those unable to be vaccinated at this time, proof of a negative PCR test within 72 hours of the performance is required. Please arrive early to present documentation to our volunteers. Advance ticket purchase is strongly suggested. Thank you!
