The Big Sky Choral Initiative

The Big Sky Choral Initiative continues its creative journey with a new paradigm for Summer 2018. All 24 members of The Crossing will join composer Michael Gordon and filmmaker Bill Morrison to create a new work specific to this unique gathering at Big Sky. 

The work draws on the land of Montana - its history, beauty, struggles, and expanse - as inspiration for this hour-long work for unaccompanied choir and film.  Concentrating all our efforts on this new piece, The Choral Initiative will therefore not be accepting applications for Singing, Composing, or Conducting Fellows as in the past. The Crossing will have its annual Big Sky Community Sing Saturday morning August 4 and will give a concert of music by David Lang and Eriks Esenvalds that evening in Bozeman.  The premiere of Gordon and Morrison's new work will be Thursday evening, August 9.
