This event has passed.

Hailed as “superb” (New York Times), “ardently angelic” (Los Angeles Times), and “something of a miracle” (Philadelphia Inquirer), the internationally-recognized choir returns to PCMS by popular demand, having sold out its first performance last season. Conductor Donald Nally has said of the Crossing’s December program: “Traditions matter, particularly when the world around them is uncharted, adventuresome, unknown; that’s what makes the tradition of The Crossing @ Christmas so special. It’s a true gift to sing works that we have loved and longed for. We are so fortunate to have introduced these works to our friends, with their rich and varied styles, contemplating the wonders of birth, of the natural world, of mystery and love.”

Formed by a group of friends in 2005, the ensemble has since grown.
