Fortas Chamber Music Concerts: A Far Cry
The Boston-based Grammy®-nominated string orchestra makes its Kennedy Center debut with a program of works by Pärt, Mozart, Elgar, and Tchaikovsky. As a self-conducted orchestra, A Far Cry operates democratically where decisions are made collectively and leadership rotates among the players, referred to as Criers. This structure has led to consistently thoughtful, innovative, and dynamic programming. The ensemble brims with personality or, better, personalities, many and varied (The New York Times), cultivating a unique, high-energy experience for audiences and players.
