The Crossing @ Christmas

December 16, 2022
The Church of the Holy Trinity, Rittenhouse Square
PLA Presents

Event Location: The Church of the Holy Trinity, Rittenhouse Square, 1904 Walnut Street

“America’s most astonishing choir,” (The New York Times) The Crossing, reflects on our world during the holiday season. Conducted by Donald Nally, this multiple Grammy® Award-winning new music ensemble performs a world premiere by Caroline Shaw and the Philadelphia premiere of Mass Transmission by Mason Bates. Featuring organist Scott Dettra, Mass Transmission explores how the telephone and early radio connected people across the planet but created a new kind of global loneliness at the same time.
