The Jeffrey Dinsmore
Memorial Fund

a legacy initiative honoring our co-founder


On April 14, 2014, just before a rehearsal with the LA Philharmonic at Disney Hall, our co-founder Jeff Dinsmore died suddenly. It was a shock to our community. Time has allowed us to reflect on that loss; we now celebrate the gifts that Jeff brought to the new-music and choral worlds and we honor his legacy. He left us The Crossing.

Please join us as a supporter of The Jeffrey Dinsmore Memorial Fund, honoring that legacy. Through this initiative, we are funding "Jeff Quartets," a collective commissioning project for our 2015-16 season featuring fifteen composers whose lives Jeff touched. The fund will perpetually support “The Crossing @ Christmas,” our annual December concert, the most popular of our offerings and one of Jeff’s favorites.

Thank you, as we thank Jeff.
