Sometimes life speaks and demands you listen. That happened March 1 with the passing of a legend and a friend. March didn't come in like a lion; the Lion left us. Joe Flummerfelt is gone.
Joe touched the life of every person near The Crossing, even those who may not realize that the values and art he imparted in his teaching speak through the students that have populated The Crossing since our birth. We want to do something to recognize that impact, now.
So we are changing our programming. With the generous agreement of Tom Lloyd, we are postponing the premiere of his
In the Light
(scheduled for March 30/31) until a future time when we can properly concentrate on it. Instead, we are going to answer life's call, and sing a concert for Joe Flummerfelt.
Not a memorial, nor a celebration.
More like a musical picture book;
it's "what we do when we are feeling grateful or humble or sad or confounded." We sing. We sing music of our time. For Joe.
