Our Knight Foundation Arts Challenge Grant Composer's Competition drew a dizzying array of talents from the Greater Delaware Valley; we are thrilled to present the world premiere's of three works written by the winners of the competition. The works are specifically designed for performance in our "industrial cathedral," Crane Arts' Icebox. 

Robert Maggio's moving work, "The Woman Where We are Living", for choir and harp, journeys into a topic touching so many today; the experience of Alzheimer's patients, as seen through Dr. Alzheimer's initial interviews with Auguste Deter. James Primosch's "Mass for the Day of St. Thomas Didymus" explores the acoustics of the Icebox in a work combining traditional Latin mass texts with reflections on those texts by poet Denise Levertov. And Frances White's "The Third Night" combines atmospheric textures with a film by James Pritchett, making full use of the space and its magnificent projection wall.

This concert made possible by a generous grant from the Knight Foundation, promoting quality journalism, advancing media innovation, engaging communities and fostering the arts for over 50 years.
