“The orchestra [A Far Cry] brims with personality or, better, personalities, many and varied.”

Prepare for a one-of-a-kind concert experience when two energetic ensembles join forces to bring to life original pieces from two young composers, including a Pulitzer Prize winner.
A Far Cry is a self-conducted orchestra that stands at the forefront of an exciting new generation in classical music.
Roomful of Teeth is a Grammy Award-winning vocal project dedicated to mining the expressive potential of the human voice and forging new repertoire without borders.
This sonic patchwork created by A Far Cry with Roomful of Teeth is an ever-changing and fleeting burst of colors, timbres, and visions.
The program opens with the lush writing of 2013 Pulitzer Prize-winner and Teeth member Caroline Shaw, with an original commission for both ensembles, and is anchored by two energetic and captivating works by Ted Hearne. Spanning and connecting these two Gen X composers is a startlingly beautiful and vivid set of character pieces by Prokofiev.
