Hailed by the Boston Globe as "Thrilling", "Brilliant" & "Intrepid", the self-conducted chamber orchestra, A Far Cry explores the traditional boundaries of Western classical music, experimenting with the ways music is prepared, performed, and experienced.

Most recently named Chamber Orchestra in Residence at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum starting in 2010, it was founded in 2007 as a tightly-knit collective of young professional Boston-area string players, and since then A Far Cry has developed an innovative structure of rotating leadership, both on stage and behind the scenes. This, in contrast to typical orchestras, empowers the musician and aims to distill a valuable diversity of opinion into a unified voice.

In its short existence, A Far Cry has been embraced throughout the world with more than 100 performances across America, three albums, and nearly 100,000 views on YouTube.

A 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, A Far Cry's commitment to education and community is at the heart of its mission. By recently opening a public-friendly rehearsal and office storefront in its home neighborhood of Jamaica Plain, the Criers are in the public eye throughout the rehearsal and working process, and not just on the day of the concert. With this project, A Far Cry hopes to underscore the artist's relevance and ongoing importance to the community. In a partnership with the New England Conservatory (NEC) since 2008 and starting in 2009, as Chamber Orchestra in Residence at NEC, A Far Cry presents a series of concerts each year at NEC's Jordan Hall, regularly provides speakers on entrepreneurship for NEC Career Development Seminars, and collaborates closely with the NEC Preparatory School. In addition to coaching Preparatory orchestra sectionals, A Far Cry invites select Prep students to join the orchestra in a Jordan Hall concert, passing on the spirit of collaborative music-making to the next generation of musicians.
