The Crossing is a newly established choir created by the Lyric Opera of Chicago’s Chorus Master Donald Nally in 2005. Rarely singing music written before 1995, this chamber group of 23 professional personnel is devoted to performing new additions to the choral repertoire by important contemporary composers such as Kamran Ince, Joby Talbot, Arvo Pärt, Thomas Adès. Winner of the 2009 Chorus America/ASCAP award for Adventuresome Programming, The Crossing recently performed the world premiere of David Lang’s Statement to the Court. The group performs roughly four times per year, mostly in late spring and early summer. Tickets are $25, with student and senior prices at $15; all donations to this non-profit go to offset performance costs.
