The Crossing Embarks on Tour with Dublin Guitar Quartet

By Francisco Salazar

The Crossing is set to embark on an East Coast tour with the Dublin Guitar Quartet from Jan. 27 to Feb. 6, 2022.

Conductor Donald Nally will lead the tour, which will stop in seven cities in the U.S. including the University of Richmond in Richmond, VA; Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, PA; Hamilton College in Clinton, NY; Dartmouth College in Hanover, NH; Bucknell University in Lewisburg, PA; Lafayette College in Easton, PA; and Franklin and Marshall College in Lancaster, PA.

The program opens with the Dublin Guitar Quartet performing Bryce Dessner’s “Aheym” and Philip Glass’s Piano Etude No. 16. The Crossing will also perform two signature unaccompanied works on immigration and monuments: Her Beacon-hand Beckons by Caroline Shaw and SHIFT by Ayanna Woods.

The tour will also see The Crossing and the Dublin Guitar Quartet join forces for Nico Muhly’s “How Little You Are.”
