The Crossing @ Christmas 2011 was performed to a sold-out at St. Paul’s Church and a tradition was born.  The Philadelphia Inquirer called it “mesmerizing” and noted the warmth of the candlelit atmosphere – singers and audience shared in a uniquely beautiful holiday event.  Join us this season for a program of the greatest contemporary music inspired by the Nativity.  Purchase tickets here.
