On April 14, 2014, just before a rehearsal with the LA Philharmonic at Disney Hall, our co-founder Jeff Dinsmore passed away. It was a shock to our community. Time has allowed us to reflect on that loss; we now celebrate the gifts that Jeff brought to the new-music and choral worlds and we honor his legacy. He left us The Crossing.

Please join us as a supporter of The Jeffrey Dinsmore Memorial Fund, honoring that legacy. Through this initiative, we fund The Crossing @ Christmas, our annual December concert, the most popular of our offerings, and one of Jeff’s favorites.  

The fund also made possible the commissioning and performance of
Jeff Quartets, a collective new-works project featuring fifteen composers whose lives Jeff touched. 

The quartets premiered July 8, 2016 and you can view them HERE.

The 2016 omnibus edition of the Jeff Quartets is permanently sold out; the quartets are now available through the composers' publishers.
