Dedicated to the commissioning and performance of music by living composers, professional chamber choir The Crossing explores ways in which to expand choral writing. With more than 100 commissions, the ensemble has received two Grammy awards for “Best Choral Performance” for recordings of works that elevate dynamic compositional voices. Many of The Crossing’s commissions often address issues of our society, environment and politics. In this special project, “Carols After A Plague,” The Crossing will premiere new works that honor the resilience of emerging from a global pandemic and acknowledge the healing much needed in our world. While at The Clarice, members of The Crossing will lead a clinic with choral singers in the UMD School of Music.

  • Leila Adu
