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.

Recently appointed Chamber Orchestra in Residence at Boston’s Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, 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 and continues to foster ties to a growing community with a storefront rehearsal space and neighborhood concert series in Boston—infusing each venture with, in the Globe’s words, “high musical standards and unbridled idealism.”
