Celebrated early music vocalist Ruth Cunningham joins Electric Diamond for a distinctive Christmas concert this December at the historic Cabrini Shrine in New York City.

Drawing inspiration from Mother Cabrini’s reflections on Mary and the Nativity, Stuart Diamond collaborates with ambient-music pioneer Don Slepian and the acclaimed early music vocalist Ruth Cunningham. Together, they weave a blend of medieval song, chant, and contemporary improvisation to create peaceful, meditative atmospheres in the candlelit space of The Cabrini Shrine.

Ruth Cunningham’s Story: A classically trained musician, sound healer, and founding member of the eminent early music vocal group Anonymous4. Ruth specializes in early instrumental and vocal music and improvisational sacred music from varied spiritual traditions in both liturgical and concert settings.

Electric Diamond’s Story: the pioneering electro-acoustic music ensemble  – wind synth pioneer Stuart Diamond and ambient keyboard innovator Don Slepian – has performed together for 35+ years. Their music integrates classical music with free-flowing improvisations – from Bach to Mussorgsky, from medieval dances to Native American soundscapes.

Subway: Take the A train to 190th Street and use the elevator to get to Fort Washington Ave. The Shrine is across the street to your left, behind the stone wall.
