Two internationally renowned Bay Area ensembles join forces for the first time in a unique combination of male chorus and chamber orchestra.
It was the 1930s, with the swing of Gershwin and Ellington's orchestras and close vocal harmonies of the Comedian Harmonists. Atlantic Crossing evokes this intoxicating and dynamic time between the two world wars, imagining a cruise ship traveling between Germany and New York in these years of whirlwind creativity when European composers were migrating to the United States. This exciting program incorporates the music of the 1920s and 1930s, reflecting the complex world after World War I was over and the Jazz Age had begun.
