The Jeffrey Dinsmore
Memorial Fund

a legacy initiative honoring our co-founder

On April 14, 2014, just before a rehearsal with the LA Philharmonic at Disney Hall, our co-founder Jeff Dinsmore passed away. It was a shock to our community. Time has allowed us to reflect on that loss; we now celebrate the gifts that Jeff brought to the new-music and choral worlds and we honor his legacy. He left us The Crossing.

Please join us as a supporter of The Jeffrey Dinsmore Memorial Fund, honoring that legacy. Through this initiative, we fund The Crossing @ Christmas, our annual December concert, the most popular of our offerings, and one of Jeff’s favorites.  

The fund also made possible the commissioning and performance of
Jeff Quartets, a collective new-works project featuring fifteen composers whose lives Jeff touched. 
The quartets premiered July 8, 2016.

The omnibus edition of the quartets is available for purchase HERE;
all proceeds benefit The Jeffrey Dinsmore Memorial Fund.

Thank you, as we thank Jeff.
