Hailed as “superb” (The New York Times) and “ardently angelic,” (The Los Angeles Times) The Crossing is a multiple Grammy® Award-winning, Philadelphia-based new music choir conducted by Donald Nally. Known for its commitment to thought-provoking new works, The Crossing brings the “reigning queen of the avant-garde cello” (The Washington Post) Maya Beiser to Philadelphia for the world premiere of Michael Gordon’s A Travel Guide to Nicaragua. Gordon spent his childhood living in Nicaragua, and the piece reflects his memories and musings on the culture, as well as insights from Mark Twain’s writings of a trip through the small, beautiful country.
