The Crossing, Chorus
Wolfensohn Hall

The acclaimed chorus The Crossing will perform David Lang's Pulitzer-Prize winning work, The Little Match Girl Passion, which combines the haunting Hans Christian Anderson story with additional texts to create a rich, enthralling, multi-layered narrative. To complement this work, Kile Smith wrote The Consolation of Apollo, which weaves together dialogue between the astronauts of Apollo 8 and their TV broadcast from the moon's orbit.
