Maya Beiser, Cello

Harold Prince Theatre
PLA Presents
Although previously rescheduled, this event has now been cancelled.

World Premiere

Hailed as “superb” (The New York Times) and “ardently angelic,” (The Los Angeles Times) The Crossing is a multiple Grammy® Award-winning, Philadelphia-based new music choir conducted by Donald Nally. Known for its commitment to thought-provoking new works, The Crossing brings the “reigning queen of the avant-garde cello” (The Washington Post) Maya Beiser to Philadelphia for the world premiere of Michael Gordon’s Travel Guide to Nicaragua, an Annenberg Center co-commissioned work. Gordon spent his childhood living in Nicaragua, and the piece reflects his memories and musings on the culture, as well as insights from Mark Twain’s writings of a trip through the small, beautiful country.


Media support for this performance provided by WRTI.

Travel Guide to Nicaragua is co-commissioned by the Annenberg Center and Carnegie Hall.
