our season's journey continues this weekend

* * *
  Thanks to all who joined us for our Park Avenue Armory debut in New York: a week of sold out shows to kick off our 14th season. Such a unique space; we loved singing in the bright acoustic of the warmly-lit Board of Officers Room with its looming portraits, bringing Gabriel Jackson's  Rigwreck  to the opulent Tiffany-designed setting of the Veterans' Room, and chatting with new and old friends  under the incandescent lights of the Headhouse Hallway . (Thanks to the amazing Armory staff for making us look great!)  It was an extra treat to open up  The New York Times  and read about our "gift for lending social activism poetic form."  Read more on that below.

The journey continues this weekend as we switch gears and head to Peak Performances at Montclair State University. We're teaming up again with our friends at the International Contemporary Ensemble to bring old favorites to a splendid new setting: THE NATIONAL ANTHEMS @ Peak Performances Join us  Saturday  for iconic works of Lang, Shaw, and Hearne!

 "Hard on the heels of a sold-out Park Avenue Armory engagement, 
the splendid Philadelphia vocal ensemble the Crossing offers a 
timely consideration of nationalism, sexual trespass, and global migration."

"The program emphasized the Crossing's gift for lending social activism poetic form, as well as its uncanny array of sounds, from mere fumes to piercing, feral cries." -The New York Times

Zealot Canticles - our 15th CD! - will be available on 
all digital platforms starting September 28th.

Based on Wole Soyinka's Twelve Canticles for the Zealot, this oratorio by Lansing McLoskey is a strangely beautiful and terrifying look into the minds of fanatics.

An extra special touch, the album artwork was drawn by Steven Bradshaw, a multitalented visual artist and stalwart rock of our tenors.
