"The Crossing's annual holiday program is reliably one of the loveliest
musical events of the year in Philadelphia" -The Philadelphia Inquirer

@ Christmas

The Crossing @ Christmas sings of motherhood from the perspective of home, looking out across the landscapes and timespans over which our children must travel.  Poignant reflections on the Nativity are interspersed with contemporary works by Gavin Bryars, Gabriel Jackson, Robert Convery, and Toivo Tulev, with a world premiere by Michael Gilbertson, setting Nobel laureate Wisława Szymborska's poem, "Born."   A musical meditation on the connective threads that forever hold us close to home.
