Boston, MA (Echorus)

December 7

Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Boston, MA
A Far Cry

More Info

An exploration of abstraction in sound. The works on this program were selected on two criteria: the musicians of A Far Cry love them, and audiences often approach with skepticism… until they have a listen. The pieces increase in “difficulty.” Can you make it to the end?
