A Celebration of Music and the Arts in the New World for the 250th Anniversary of St. Paul’s Chapel
January 1-12, 2017

All events are free of charge and held at St. Paul’s Chapel unless otherwise indicated

Trinity’s annual festival of January concerts, Time’s Arrow, which exemplifies Trinity’s signature juxtaposition of early and modern music, is a highlight of New York’s musical season. This year’s Time’s Arrow program celebrates the 250th anniversary of the opening of St. Paul’s Chapel. Completed on October 30, 1766, St. Paul’s is the oldest surviving church building in Manhattan. Works will range from those foundational to American music to world premieres and commissions from leading American composers.
