"America's most astonishing choir" (The New York Times) reprises its sold-out concerts from October 2020 with The Forest, experienced via a bucolic stroll through the woods. Composed by Donald Nally and Kevin Vondrak and based on writings by members of The Crossing, The Forest reflects upon feelings of isolation and aloneness during the pandemic by exploring the symbiotic relationship between individual trees and the forest. This metaphor for the link between each singer and the ensemble, as well as every person and the world, reminds us that we are always deeply connected on the root level, relying on others for strength and support, contributing our energy to the health of the whole.

"The melding of voice, words and technology was seamless ... [a] clear-cut success on every level, a piece that's not a make-do for lack of traditional concerts, but something that couldn't have been imagined in other time and is fully realized on a high level." (The Philadelphia Inquirer)
