This a cappella vocal quartet brings their exquisitely blended voices back to the Music Room in Sing Thee Nowell, a program of sacred Christmas music spanning seven centuries. Select rooms of the Rosen House, splendidly decorated for the holidays, will be open for viewing one hour prior to each performance. Ring in the holidays with New York Polyphony’s “rich, natural sound that’s larger and more complex than the sum of its parts” (NPR).
