  • Amy McTear will lead the New Year's Day Harmonic Choiron January 1 at the Celebration Chapel in Kingston.

Welcome in the new year by joining voices at this nondenominational community choir at Kingston's Celebration Chapel on January 1. Last year, 300 people came together for the sound concert and vocal meditation, which depends on community participation both for providing melody and creating a sense of unity and fellowship. Among this year's performers is world-renowned bansuri flute player Steve Gorn. The audience will sing original choral pieces accompanied by an array of instruments, including the 150-year-old building's original pipe organ and bell in the 200-foot steeple, gong, crystal singing bowls, chimes, didgeridoo, flutes, piano, and drums.
