A Far Cry Chamber Orchestra on SymphonyCast, Fri 3/15 @ 8pm

The Boston-based orchestra, A Far Cry is “self-conducted,” meaning that the playerstake turns leading the group and make collective decisions on interpretation and repertoire. Founded in 2007, the group has already made a name for itself, having received two Grammy nominations.
