A Far Cry stands at the forefront of an exciting new generation in classical music. According to The New York Times, the self-conducted orchestra “brims with personality or, better, personalities, many and varied.” A Far Cry was founded in 2007 by a tightly-knit collective of 17 young professional musicians and has been embraced throughout the world with more than two hundred performances, three albums, a powerful presence on the internet, and a European debut tour in 2012.

Program includes Ives Largo and Scherzo from “3 Short Pieces”; Lullaby of Gershwin; Kip Jones Three Views of A Mountain (Concerto for violin and double bass); Vjola Suite (written for A Far Cry) by Lev Zhurbin and Dvorak’s American Quintet (arranged for chamber orchestra). Reception to follow. For ticket information view Organizer Website.
