The Crossing @ Christmas has played to sold-out audiences since its revival in 2011. A unique perspective in the plethora of holiday concerts, the carefully-chosen, contemplative works of spirituality ponder our relationship with our deities, in a candle-lit calm of warmth and gratitude.  We introduce Wolfgang Rihm with his vast, meditative Astralis – based on Novalis’ poem of hope and sorrow.  Works of Gabriel Jackson, Toivo Tulev, Eriks Esenvalds, and other Crossing favorites will round out this Holiday Concert Event!
