The Crossing

This is the second broadcast in The Crossing's Month of Moderns series, featuring a world-premiere collaboration with Network for New Music. The 2000 Pulitzer Prize-winner Lewis Spratlan composed a concert-length work for The Crossing; Hesperus is Phosphorus loosely takes the form of a kind of secular vespers – a passage, or crossing, through the philosophical and spiritual canyons of our time. Drawing on the words of American poets, playwrights, and physicists, Spratlan’s music explores growth and loss in our ever-expanding world of discovery.

The Crossing chamber choir is led by Donald Nally. Don't miss it - Sunday, June 10th from 3 to 5 pm.
