“America’s most astonishing choir,” (The New York Times) The Crossing, performs the Philadelphia premiere of Tyshawn Sorey‘s Monochromatic Light (Afterlife). An extraordinary composer, multi-instrumentalist and professor of music at Penn, Sorey’s critically acclaimed work is a tribute to both the deeply contemplative space of Rothko Chapel and Morton Feldman’s 20th-century masterpiece of the same name. Sorey’s complex shades of color, feeling and texture are enhanced by 3D visual projections to create an all-encompassing journey into the collective memory and trauma of our time. Conducted by Donald Nally and joined by bass-baritone Davóne Tines, Sorey’s new work shares the program with Feldman’s 1971 composition allowing for fascinating comparison.
