J.L. Adams Vespers of the Blessed Earth
Stravinsky The Rite of Spring

The Rite of Spring, Igor Stravinsky’s vivid reflection on ancient pagan rituals, still astounds more than a century after its riotous Parisian premiere. John Luther Adams’s Vespers of the Blessed Earth references humanity’s impact on the Earth. He told the Philadelphia Inquirer, “The music I’m writing now is an expression of grief and faith in the possibility of human redemption.” Philadelphia-based choral group The Crossing joins Yannick and the Orchestra, making its SPAC debut with this transformative performance.
