Sunday December 17 at 5pm
The Presbyterian Church of Chestnut Hill
8855 Germantown Ave., Philadelphia, PA 19118

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.

We offer two performances this year to accommodate last year’s sold-out concert. Click here for December 15 performance at Church of the Holy Trinity, Rittenhouse Square.

What knits us
to the soul of another
the way dusk light becomes
a part of darkness returning
