The Crossing Opens 2017 Month of Moderns Series

On June 11th, 2017, The Crossing opened its Month of Moderns series at Philadelphia's Crane Arts, with the premiere of composer Joshua Stamper's ‘mid the steep sky’s commotion.

‘mid the steep sky’s commotion features a found-text libretto culled from the streets of Philadelphia, each movement representative of a different journey through the city. Texts were harvested from objects that have been moved, gathered, and discarded by the wind – weathered gas receipts, discarded church bulletins, candy wrappers, concert flyers, matchbooks – and are separated, combined, and recombined.

The Crossing's Month of Moderns series continues through July.
