What do you get when you bring seventeen talented musicians with a passion for their craft and a deep respect for all forms of music into a rehearsal space in Boston without a conductor? You get A Far Cry, the extraordinarily talented collective of seventeen young musicians who are redefining orchestral music and wowing audiences, from their Boston home at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, to venues across the U.S. and Europe! With a joyful spirit of collaboratively-empowered, innovatively structured, and experimentally bold music for a new generation of music lovers, A Far Cry is 'gripped by the simple idea that contemporary music should be treated with the same respect as the rest of the Western canon' (The Boston Musical Intelligencer). In work that is fresh, nuanced, deeply felt, and even humorous, A Far Cry expands the boundaries of the orchestral repertoire and cheerfully experiments with all the different ways that its offerings can be prepared, performed, and experienced. Join us for a spectacular evening of orchestral music as you've never experienced it before, and be embraced by the multi-faceted orchestral wonders of A Far Cry's spectacular seventh season!
