Although previously rescheduled, this event has now been cancelled.

World Premiere

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 Travel Guide to Nicaragua, an Annenberg Center co-commissioned work. 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.
