Host

We're teaming up one final time this season for a Night Out with Groupmuse Presenting Partners A Far Cry for their final concert of their 2023-24 season.

The concert, entitled Perception, questions:
"How does music create a mood or fuel an emotional response? How do framing and context impact our perception of something? Exploring these musings, the program features one of Bartók’s best-known compositions—made famous from the soundtracks of films including Being John Malkovich and The Shining—a musical fever dream that heightens our senses with constantly changing meters and a vast range of sounds generated by the largest (self-conducted!) orchestral forces of the season. Gubaidulina transforms a Bach chorale, infusing it with irresistible smoky turbulence. In between, Mozart’s light and happy serenade stands in stark contrast and suddenly feels otherworldly..."

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.”
