The Crossing is a professional chamber choir dedicated to expanding the contemporary choral music experience through commissions, collaborations, community, and performances that are characterized by a distinctive unity of sound and spirit. Led by conductor Donald Nally, The Crossing has been hailed as “superb” (The New York Times), “ardently angelic” (Los Angeles Times), and “something of a miracle” (The Philadelphia Inquirer). The ensemble has grown exponentially since being formed by a group of friends in 2005, and “has made a name for itself in recent years as a champion of new music” (The New York Times).

Little, Santa Ratniece, Anna Thorvaldsdottir, and Pelle Gudmundsen-Holmgreen.
