The Crossing returns to the Institute in a program of politically thoughtful music for choir and instruments. The Crossing will perform Ted Hearne’s Consent, a piece on how language influences thinking about women’s rights, and To the Hands, which focuses on immigration, by Pulitzer Prize-winner Caroline Shaw. The concert also features a piece by Lang, the national anthems, whose text is created from poetic lines from the national anthems of every country in the world, creating a meta-anthem of fear, blood, and hope.
A concert talk with the performers and David Lang, Artist-in-Residence, will follow the Friday evening performance.
