The concert represents the culminationof our year long collaboration with the choir where together the Crossing Choir and John Story Jenks Academy of Arts and Sciences students created a new work composed for the occasion by Kile Smith on a poem by Ryan Eckes; both artists have worked extensively with the students,sharing the process and developing the talents of our next generation. Members of The Crossing have served as mentors in the rehearsal process,and the concert brings us all together for a joyful new discovery. The concert is free of charge and we look forward to welcoming the community.
This project was generously funded through the Chestnut Hill Community Fund (CHCF) and was inspired by the suggestion of the CHCF. Additional support for the project was provided byThe Presser Foundation,The Friends of J.S. Jenks, and The Chestnut Hill Community Fund, and the Crossing Choir itself.
