Spend Valentine’s Day reflecting with The Crossing as we sing works about our love for one another, love for our planet, and our wish for a more loving culture. As in Reprise 1, we return to signature pieces in the music of Ted Hearne and David Lang, we revisit now-classic works written for us by Philadelphia composers Kile Smith and David Shapiro, and reprise one of our most memorable premieres, Gabriel Jackson’s stunning, thoughtful, angry, sharp, and beautiful Rigwreck.
Pre-concert talk with Donald at 3pm in Burleigh Cruikshank Memorial Chapel.
Kile Smith: Where flames a word (from The Celan Project, 2009)
Gabriel Jackson: Rigwreck (from The Gulf (between you and me), 2013)
Ted Hearne: Privilege
Gabriel Jackson: Song (I gaze upon you)
David Shapiro: It is Time (from The Celan Project, 2009)
David Lang: I live in pain (a 2011 gift to The Crossing from this Pulitzer laureate)
