a soul-soaring mix of traditional holiday and sacred music performed by brass, string and percussion, Celtic instruments and the Highland pipes interspersed with Holy Scripture and the poetry and literature of Celtic heritage.

From the bold sounds of the pipes and drums, and the harmonious blending of brass, strings and percussion, to the poetic and lyrical words that complement them, The Pipes of Christmas is a festival for the soul. The concert features the music of Christmas accompanied by a selection of readings taken from the Celtic literature of Scotland, Ireland, and Wales.
Proceeds from this annual fundraising concert benefit music scholarships established with leading Celtic arts programs at universities and colleges in the US, Canada and Scotland.
Featured performers include James Robinson from Mel Gibson's Braveheart, New England fiddle champion, Paul Woodiel, Riverdance piper, Christopher Layer, guitarist Steve Gibb from Jersey Boys, cellist Sarah Hewitt-Roth Finding Neverland, Scottish Country Dance aficionado Susie Petrov, the Solid Brass ensemble, Scottish Gaelic Mod Champion harpist Jennifer Port and the Kevin Ray Blandford Memorial Pipe Band of Redlands, CA.
The Pipes of Christmas is made possible through the generous support of The Gaelic College of Cape Breton, Nova Scotia and the Grand Summit Hotel. Additional support provided by Celtic Life Magazine and the Classic Malts of Scotland.
Village Halloween Costume Ball
Monday, October 31, 2016 through Tuesday, November 01, 2016
Nonstop theater, a costume competition and ballroom dancing will bewitch the East Village in Theater for the New City's 39th annual Village Halloween Costume Ball on Monsay, October 31st at TNC, 155 First Avenue. This unique festival continues as a grand coming-together for everyday New Yorkers and artists alike. A carefree fall tradition, it celebrates the creativity that comes with the season.
The one-night fiesta takes over all four of TNC's theater spaces, plus its lobby and the block of East Tenth Street between First and Second Avenues. Customarily over 1,400 wildly-clad celebrants gather for dancing, dining, showing off costumes and viewing acts from the cutting-edge of Cabaret and Theater. Admission is $20; costume or formal wear is required.
Big-Band Dance orchestras take over the large Johnson Theater.
With its Witches' Cauldron, the event can justifiably claim to have downtown's most sensational Halloween cafe. The Community Theater of TNC becomes an atmospheric grande buffet for the event, with a variety of American and international delicacies available at peoples' prices. Holiday dishes are contributed by neighboring East Village restaurants and a variety of private chefs. You can gobble couscous from a coffin lid beginning at 7:30 pm while enjoying spine-tingling performances by performance artists, songwriters, poets and variety artists.
Outside, there are bluegrass and jazz bands, fire eaters, jugglers, storyweavers and stilt dancers, all free to the public and a gift from TNC to its neighborhood. Inside, there is theater all evening.
HOT LAVENDER SWING BAND, MAQUINA MONO
CABARET ALL EVENING
Since its beginning in 1977, TNC's Halloween extravaganza has been a point of origin for many of the City's most original entertainers. Six full-length plays have grown out of playlets written for the fest and it is probable that the theatrical movement in Performance Art began there. It has been a launching pad for such formative artists as Paul Zaloom, Alice Farley, Bloolips, The Red Mole, Penny Arcade, Basil Twist and Alien Comic Tom Murrin. It is also interesting to note TNC originated the Village Halloween Parade as part of its annual Halloween Ball. The procession wound its way through the Village from TNC's second home at the corner of Jane and West Streets to Washington Square Park. Now the event takes up every available inch (both floors) of TNC's multi-theater complex at 155 First Avenue (the former First Avenue Retail Market building) and adjoining outdoor spaces.
Doors open at 7:30 pm and indoor entertainment begins at 8:00 pm. There will be two continuously-running cabarets. Outdoor entertainment, free to the public, will start at 4:00 pm. Outdoor entertainment is capped by "The Red and Black Masque," an annual Medieval ritual show written by Arthur Sainer, scored by David Tice and directed by Crystal Field which is performed by torchlight.
Scattered through the event will be stilt dancers, jugglers, fire-eaters, Vaudeville playlets and Burlesque. Lobby attractions will include a Wiccan Psychic Reader, Astrology/Numerology, Astral Portraits, an Aura Reader, throwing of the I Ching and Hellsouls.
The entire facility will be elaborately rendered for Halloween, featuring intricate and massive environments by leading theatrical scenarists, sculptors, and artists
The annual costume judging begins at 12:00 am with the "Monsters and Miracles Costume Parade," as all revelers are invited to march past a panel of celebrity judges. Winners in twelve individual categories will receive one-year passes to TNC and a bottle of Moet and Chandon champagne. Attendees will be judged in such categories as "Most Magickal," "Most Psychic," "Most Bo-Toxic," "Most Organic," "Most Iraq-irate," "Most Spammed," "Most Fraudulent," Most Hybrid," "Most Hungry for Tomatoes" and "Most Born-Again, and Again, and Again."
