Biography


Founded in 2007 by 17 young musicians bent on making music according to their own rules, the groundbreaking, self-conducted string orchestra A Far Cry has enjoyed a heady ascent toward the highest ranks of today's new generation of classical ensembles. Hailed by the Boston Globe as "Thrilling", "Intrepid" and "Brilliant," A Far Cry explores the traditional boundaries of classical music, experimenting with the ways it is prepared, performed, and experienced.

The ensemble has developed an innovative structure of rotating leadership, both on stage and behind the scenes, which empowers each musician and aims to distill a valuable diversity of opinion into one unified voice. Along with its busy touring schedule across the USA, A Far Cry maintains an educational partnership with the New England Conservatory, a residency at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, and continues to foster ties with a growing community through its storefront rehearsal space and neighborhood concert series in Jamaica Plain - infusing each venture with, in the Globe's words, "high musical standards and unbridled idealism."
