The Crossing (choral ensemble)
The Crossing is a professional chamber choir in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA. They focus on new music, commission and premiere works, and collaborate with other Philadelphia ensembles.
The Crossing gave their first concert in November 2005 when a group of friends who had previously worked together with conductor Donald Nally in Italy and Philadelphia reunited to sing a concert at Saint Mark’s Church, Philadelphia. A year later, they took up residency at the Presbyterian Church of Chestnut Hill, which remains their host today. They have sung a full season of three or more concerts each year since.
The Crossing has evoked overwhelming critical response from the Philadelphia newspapers, calling Nally "a musical treasure whose local ties should be maintained and sustained at all costs," and the ensemble "an answered prayer" to Philadelphia musicians.
In 2009, The Crossing gave the opening concert for Chorus America’s National Conference in Philadelphia. It has received the 2009 and 2011 ASCAP Award for Adventurous Programming from Chorus America. The Crossing has produced two recordings to date under the Navona Records label: Kile Smith's Vespers – with Piffaro, The Renaissance Band – and It Is Time, a collection of new works on words of Philip Levine (U.S. Poet Laureate 2011-12) and Paul Celan, including works (commissioned by The Crossing) by Kirsten Broberg, Paul Fowler, David Shapiro, and Kile Smith. In addition to these composers, the Crossing has commissioned works by Benjamin C.S. Boyle, William Brooks, Gene Coleman, Eriks Esenvalds, Kamran Ince, Gabriel Jackson, Chris Jonas, David Lang, Andrew Gant, Lansing McLoskey, Lewis Spratlan (co-commissioned with Philadelphia’s Network for New Music), and Joby Talbot and has presented American premieres of works by Ešenvalds, Pelle Gudmundsen-Holmgreen, Frank Havrøy, Bo Holten, Erhard Karkoschka, James MacMillan, and Francis Pott.
The Crossing counts among its collaborators International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE), Lyric Fest, Network for New Music, Philadelphia Virtuosi Chamber Orchestra, Piffaro, The Renaissance Band, and Tempesta di Mare. David Patrick Stearns, in the Philadelphia Inquirer, has called The Crossing “Philadelphia’s best chorus"; it has been named to the Inquirer’s Top Ten Classical Events of 2008 and 2009. The Philadelphia classical and jazz radio station WRTI will begin broadcasting all of The Crossing’s concerts in December 2011.[dated info] The Crossing has been the recipient of three major grants from The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage through the Philadelphia Music Project.

Contemporary music has come some distance in the new century and the few decades preceding it. One trend is centered around tonal musics to be had nowadays that aren't doctrinaire neo-romanticism or typically minimalist in a mesmerizing sense, though repetition may be a factor.
