By Logan Martell

On September 17, 2022, The Crossing choir will open their 2022-23 season with “Walking the Farm: A Progressive Concert.”

Hosted by Art at Kings Oaks in Bucks County, PA, the interactive experience will the world premieres of a new work by George Lewis, along with previous commissions such as Kirsten Broberg’s “Breathturn,” David Shapiro’s “It is time,” Jonathan Dove’s “In beauty may I walk,” and a musical setting of Czeslaw Milosz’s poem “Encounter” by Latvian composer Peteris Vasks.

Each work will be performed at its own location through the venue, as the audience treks across Kings Oaks Farm. Based on the “progressive dinner” model, the event will feature samples of local beer, wine, and food at the various stops on the trek.

Tickets are available beginning at $25, and must be purchased in advance. “Walking the Farm will perform again on September 18, with the hosting exhibition at Kings Oaks being open to the public until October 9, 2022.
