Friday, March 24, 2023 (All day)

The company will then present John Luther Adams’ “Vespers of the Blessed Earth” in collaboration with The Philadelphia Orchestra under Yannick Nézet-Séguin. The showcase will take place at the Verizon Hall at The Kimmel Center and at Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage at Carnegie Hall.

 “The Crossing has commissioned a number of works addressing our relationship to the earth, our care and absence of care in curating and managing responsibilities that have fallen to us as the planet’s most innovative and deadly species,” said The Crossing conductor Donald Nally in an official press statement released by the company. “This season brings those themes together in a joyful, thoughtful, and explorative way, through two concerts in the open fields of a Bucks County farm and new works from Ted Hearne, Caroline Shaw, George Lewis, Jennifer Higdon, John Luther Adams, and Julia Wolfe – all focused on the earth, its creatures, and its health.”

The season opens with “Walking the Farm; a Progressive Concert” in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. The showcase will take audience members throughout five stations around a farm where they will listen to music while enjoying food and drinks with other participants. The showcase will include new music by George Lewis as well as works by Kirsten Broberg and David Shapiro, among others.
