On Monday, Moët & Chandon hosted a holiday celebration at Lincoln Center to unveil a new public sculpture – ‘Your Voices’ by Es Devlin – which is on display at Josie Robertson Plaza. We first wrote about the new sculpture here.
The crowd, which included a long list of celebrities and influential figures from the entertainment, art and fashion worlds, enjoyed “an evening of music, champagne, and holiday cheer.”
The highlight of the evening was a surprise performance by Mariah Carey, who sang ‘All I Want for Christmas Is You’ along with a couple of other hits.
Other celebrity attendees included Jessica Chastain, Daniel Kaluuya, Emily Ratajkowski, Sienna Miller, Michaela Coel, Taylor Russell, Alexa Demie, Trevor Noah, Jeremy O. Harris, Jesse Williams, Chanel Iman, Megan Rapinoe, Daniel Arsham, Prabal Gurung, Tina Leung, Philip Lim, Laura Kim, Victor Cruz, Savannah Guthrie and Roger Federer.
DJs Heron Preston and Vashtie also performed from inside a champagne tower.
And there was a “custom gold room.”
About the sculpture (which you can read more about here): “The kinetic sculpture is formed of 700 glowing cords expressing the 700 languages currently spoken in New York City, which are tensioned between a series of structural arcs, enveloping visitors within a revolving illuminated network as it rotates north, south, east and west through a multilingual soundscape which interweaves languages drawn from all over the city: from Algerian Arabic, Alsation, Azeri and Ashanti to Zapotec, Zarma and Zulu.”
‘Your Voices’ will be on display until December 18. On Friday, Saturday, and Sunday evenings at 6 p.m., Lincoln Center will curate a series of New York-based choral groups to perform free for the public. Each choir will represent the vast range of rare and unique voices of the city.
