“A thoroughly modern, century-spanning, globe-trotting sonic adventure. Catch the group live.” Boston Magazine
Grammy-nominated string orchestra A Far Cry “brims with personality or, better, personalities, many and varied” (The New York Times). In the self-conducted orchestra, decisions are made collectively and leadership rotates among the players, a structure that has led to consistently thoughtful, innovative and unpredictable programming and has engendered collaborations with artists such as Yo-Yo Ma, Roomful of Teeth, the Silkroad Ensemble and Vijay Iyer. Now, the Boston-based ensemble makes its Santa Barbara debut with a program reflecting the group’s ambition and creativity.
