The Crossing 2016!
Stotesbury Mansion
Gavin Bryars'
The Fifth Century:
An open rehearsal at Stotesbury Mansion
"Ambitious and subtle....an ethereal showcase...something of a miracle."
- The Philadelphia Inquirer, July 2014 premiere of The Fifth Century

Our reprise concert of Gavin Bryars'  The Fifth Century will only be given one performance, in New York City, but we do not want Philadelphia to miss out on this amazing work written in memory of Jeff Dinsmore for The Crossing and PRISM.  40 minutes of slowly-evolving beauty based on Thomas Traherne's Centuries of Meditations - a work that is always 'becoming.'  

Join us for our final rehearsal at Stotesbury Mansion.

Friday, January 22
doors open  6.30 PM
rehearsal  7 PM (with intermission)
snacks and cash bar

Coming to the New York performance Saturday, January 23 (at St. Paul's Chapel, Trinity Wall Street)? Purchase tickets here.

Also on the program:
Bryars'  Two Love Songs, for women
Tonu Korvits'  Hymns from the Western Coast, with PRISM

The Fifth Century and  Two Love Songs will be released this Spring on ECM Records.

We thank Jim Cotter and the folks at Stotesbury Mansion for their generosity.

"Eternity magnifies our joys exceedingly."

Up next: Reprise 2
Spend Valentine's Day reflecting with The Crossing as we sing works about our love for one another, love for our planet, and our wish for a more loving culture. As in Reprise 1, we return to signature pieces in the music of Ted Hearne and David Lang, we revisit now-classic works written for us by Philadelphia composers Kile Smith and David Shapiro, and reprise one of our most memorable premieres, Gabriel Jackson's stunning, thoughtful, angry, sharp, and beautiful Rigwreck.

Pre-concert talk with Donald at 3pm in Burleigh Cruikshank Memorial Chapel.
