The Crossing

In a House Besieged

March 27, 2022
Saint Mark's Church
PLA Presents

Event Location: Saint Mark's Church, 1625 Locust Street

“Brilliant organist” (Dallas Morning News) Scott Dettra joins the “adventurous, fiercely talented choir,” (The New York Times) The Crossing, for the world premiere of Stacy Garrop’s In a House Besieged. With a fragmented libretto of Lydia Davis’ writings, the work reflects the troubled world of her stories in which destruction is everywhere yet elusive. The program also includes Lansing McCloskey’s The Memory of Rain, a piece based on poems by 2011 U.S. poet laureate Philip Levine, as well as two introspective works by the Estonian spiritual minimalist, Arvo Pärt, I am the true vine and The Beatitudes.
