The Crossing To Give World Premiere of New Michael Gordon Work

On July 1st, 2017, at Presbyterian Church of Chestnut Hill in Philadelphia, The Crossing will present the world premiere of composer Michael Gordon's Anonymous Man, a choral memoir of Gordon's block on Desbrosses Street in Lower Manhattan.

The work was commissioned by The Crossing, and will conclude the choir's 8th annual Month of Moderns festival of new music.

In the words of Donald Nally: "This work began with a discussion about diaspora-the disengaged, relocated, lost. But in Michael's thoughtful hands, it has grown into a beautiful contemplation of what a community is and does; how it makes, holds, and loses its own history. It's very personal; it has an intimacy that invites us to contemplate connections-those that are purposeful and those that happen by coincidence of time and place."
