Grammy Win for The Crossing Choir

The Crossing

February 10, 2023

We congratulate three of our Music faculty members– Dr. Dan Spratlan, Katy Avery, and Rebecca Siler, who won a Grammy with the contemporary choir, The Crossing.

They won the category for Best Choral Performance (their 3rd win in that category) for their album “Born”. Dr. Spratlan directs the University Chorus and performed one of the pieces off this album with the UC for their spring concert in 2022.

More on The Crossing:
The Crossing is a professional chamber choir conducted by Donald Nally and dedicated to new music. It is committed to working with creative teams to make and record new, substantial works for choir that explore and expand ways of writing for choir, singing in choir, and listening to music for choir.

Many of its nearly 160 commissioned premieres address social, environmental, and political issues. With a commitment to recording its commissions, The Crossing has issued 29 releases, receiving two Grammy Awards for Best Choral Performance (2018, 2019), and eight Grammy nominations.
