Donald Nally conducts The Crossing in the first of three concerts, comprising their Seventh Annual Month of Moderns Festival. This performance, "Only memory of forgetting," features the premiere of Joel Puckett's I enter the earth, which sets the words of a !Kung shaman describing the dance trance of a healing ritual. The choir is joined by Laura Ward on piano and Michael Jones on trumpet. All three of the concerts were performed in June, 2015 at the Presbyterian Church of Chestnut Hill.

The Crossing is a professional chamber choir dedicated to new music. Conducted by Donald Nally, the ensemble frequently commissions works, and has presented over 40 world premieres. Listen on Sunday, July 26th, 4 to 6 pm on WRTI.
