Host

We've teamed up with Boston legends A Far Cry to present their entire 2023-2024 season as Nights Out! You can purchase tickets to any one of their fantastic four concerts for a fraction of the original price, or grab a series bundle for an even better deal, and check out all the phenomenal programming they have to offer.

First up this season, they'll perform three new works inspired by poet T.S. Eliot’s lyrical meditations on time and humanity’s relationship to it, alongside four movements from Beethoven’s exquisite and profound string quartets (the very same which were said to have inspired Eliot to write his Four Quartets). This concert will feature acclaimed pianist Awadagin Pratt.

After the concert is over, they'll be hosting a wine and dessert post-concert reception from 10-11pm, and food and drink is included with your concert admission.

More about A Far Cry:
Called a “world-wide phenomenon” by Boston’s WBUR, A Far Cry has nurtured a distinct approach to music-making since its founding in 2007. The self-conducted orchestra is a democracy in which decisions are made collectively and leadership rotates among the players (“Criers”). This structure has led to consistently thoughtful, innovative programming — and impactful collaborations with celebrated performers and composers. A Far Cry has risen to the top of Billboard’s Traditional Classical Chart, been named Boston’s best classical ensemble by The Improper Bostonian, and celebrated two Grammy nominations for its Visions and Variations. Boston Musical Intelligencer sums up the group: “This conductor-free ensemble has earned and sustained a reputation for top-drawer playing, engrossing programming, and outstanding guest artists.”

Groupmuse ticket buyers are instructed to pick up their tickets at will call just before the concert's start time. Groups wishing to sit together should purchase tickets under a single reservation, as seating is assigned.

Accessible platform seats are available for all A Far Cry concerts at Jordan Hall. Please email [email protected] with ADA requests.
