Looking forward to Saturday’s performance with The Crossing and the Jenks School in the Chestnut Hill neighborhood of Philadelphia, my setting of May Day a poem by Ryan Eckes. The Crossing and a choir of 4th- and 5th-graders from Jenks will perform this 10-minute work.
My notes on the piece are here.
The Chestnut Hill Local just wrote up a preview of the concert here.
The Friends of Jenks, the Chestnut Hill Community Fund, the Presser Foundation, and of course The Crossing’s conductor Donald Nally and managing director Steven Gearhart made this all happen. Thanks to them, to Ryan Eckes, to the teachers and principal, and to Renee Warnick of the Friends of Jenks for making this all possible.
