A Far Cry brings their Grammy-nominated music to Conn College
Last year, A Far Cry celebrated nabbing two Grammy nominations for its album “Visions and Variations.” The categories were best chamber music/small ensemble performance and best engineered album.
It’s just the latest feather in the cap for this chamber orchestra. Based in Boston, the self-conducted, 18-member orchestra had an earlier Grammy nomination, also for best chamber music/small ensemble performance, for the 2015 release “Dreams & Prayers.” They have hit the top of the Billboard Traditional Classical Chart and have toured across America and Europe. They have collaborated with Yo-Yo Ma and Simone Dinnerstein.
A Far Cry is also, by the way, the chamber orchestra in residence at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston.
A Far Cry will come to Connecticut College for a Friday concert that’s open to the public. The program is called “Memory" and will feature compositions by Arvo Part, W.A. Mozart, Edward Elgar and Pyotr Tchaikovsky.
A Far Cry, 7:30 p.m. Friday, Evans Hall, Connecticut College, Mohegan Avenue, New London; $26 for general admission, $23 for seniors, $13 for students; (860) 439-2787, www.conncoll.edu.
