Join us this Sunday, August 28th from 4 to 6 pm to hear The Crossing perform Jeff Quartets: a concert-length set of 15 new works for four voices. Recorded in a session on the eve of their world-premiere concert performance, these poignant new works were commissioned to honor the legacy of The Crossing’s co-founder, Jeffrey Dinsmore, who died tragically at the age of 42 in April, 2014.

Seven of the world’s foremost choral composers have composed 15-minute musical responses to Dietrich Buxtehude’s Membra Jesu Nostri, a monumental sacred work of the German Baroque consisting of seven cantatas. The Crossing performs the new works alongside Buxtehude’s 1680 composition, with two leading ensembles in their respective fields of performance: Quicksilver Baroque and ICE, the International Contemporary Ensemble.

Last month, the Philadelphia new music choir The Crossing launched a two-night event, Seven Responses, featuring seven new works by major composers. What goes into such a project? The Philadelphia Inquirer’s David Patrick Stearns discovered that for one piece, it’s automobile parts.

Join us this Sunday, July 10th from 4 to 6 pm to hear The Crossing recorded live in concert on June 24, 2016 at the Philadelphia Episcopal Cathedral. Philadelphia’s professional choir dedicated to new music, The Crossing presents its most ambitious project ever with Seven Responses.
