I’m delighted to announce that I just received a commission from The Crossing, a fantastic professional chamber choir based in Philadelphia. I was one of three composers chosen to create a new work for the group, to be premiered next June at the Crane Arts Center in Philadelphia, in their exquisite Icebox performance space. This project is exciting for me for a number of reasons. First, it will be another collaboration with James Pritchett, who will create a text for me. Second, the Icebox space has an amazing, utterly beautifully reverberant acoustic, which I find uniquely inspiring. And finally, its a chance to write for a really magnificent ensemble, and to further explore the fascinating world of choral music.
