More About The Crossing:
The Crossing is a twenty-four member professional chamber choir conducted by Donald Nally and dedicated to new music. Originally formed by a group of friends in 2005, the ensemble has since grown exponentially and "has made a name for itself in recent years as a champion of new music" (The New York Times 2/14). Highly sought-after for collaborative projects, The Crossing was the resident choir of the Spoleto Festival, Italy, in 2007; appeared at Miller Theatre of Columbia University (in the American premiere of James Dillon's Nine Rivers) with the International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE); performed during Bang on Can's first Philadelphia Marathon; and has appeared with Network for New Music, Lyric Fest, Piffaro, red fish blue fish, Tempesta di Mare Baroque Chamber Orchestra, PRISM Saxophone Quartet, Toshimaru Nakamura, Dolce Suono, and in the summer of 2013, The Rolling Stones.
The Crossing frequently commissions works and has presented over 40 world premieres. Current projects include commissions with John Luther Adams, Ted Hearne, Joel Puckett, Toivo Tulev, and Gavin Bryars. The ensemble recently released two recordings on the Innova label: Christmas Daybreak—with wold premiere recordings of James MacMillan and Gabriel Jackson—and I want to live with the complete choral works for women by David Lang. In January of 2014, The Crossing made its Carnegie Hall debut with The American Composers Orchestra, and in April of 2014, its Disney hall debut with the Los Angeles Philharmonic.
