"Hard on the heels of a sold-out Park Avenue Armory engagement, the splendid Philadelphia vocal ensemble the Crossing offers a timely consideration of nationalism, sexual trespass, and global migration. The program, to be presented in Montclair, New Jersey, takes its name from a work by David Lang, a patchwork of phrases excerpted from almost two hundred anthems, which together suggest a universal posture of insecurity masked with bravado. The piece will be sung alongside Ted Hearne’s provocative 'Consent' and Caroline Shaw’s disquieting 'To the Hands.'"
