Edward T. Cone Concert Series: The Crossing, Post Concert Discussion

The Crossing - Sebastian Currier, Kile Smith, and Donald Nally

October 20, 2014

The acclaimed chorus The Crossing performed David Lang's Pulitzer Prize-winning work, The Little Match Girl Passion, which combines the haunting Hans Christian Andersen story with additional texts to create a rich, enthralling, multi-layered narrative. To complement this work, Kile Smith wrote The Consolation of Apollo, which weaves together dialogue between the astronauts of Apollo 8 and their TV broadcast from the moon's orbit. This post-concert discussion features Artist-in-Residence Sebastian Currier, Kile Smith, and conductor of The Crossing, Donald Nally.
