Recital Series: The Crossing

”…a chamber choir that manages to generate the power of a symphony orchestra.”

Having “made a name for itself in recent years as a champion of new music” (The New York Times), The Crossing comes to the Armory to perform an ambulatory concert that utilizes the corridors and historic rooms to create a unique kind of seamless music with fluidity of movement from room to room. The program includes world and New York premieres by David Lang, Louis Andriessen, and a new work by Ted Hearne, co-commissioned by the Armory. The new music champions are dedicated to expanding the contemporary choral music experience through commissions, collaborations, community, and performances that are characterized by a distinctive unity of sound and spirit.

Program to include works by David Lang, Louis Andriessen, Ingram Marshall, Ted Hearne, Suzanne Giraud, David Shapiro, Toivo Tulev, And Gabriel Jackson

The Recital Series is supported in part by The Reed Foundation. The Recital Series is also made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
