The Crossing @ Christmas

Friday December 18, 2015, 8 pm @ The Presbyterian Church of Chestnut Hill

with Scott Dettra, organ

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. To make it a true anniversary holiday, Scott Dettra joins us in the works of MacMillan, Boyle, and Dove.
