About Us

A Far Cry is an innovative, self-conducted string chamber music ensemble that strives to ignite a love for great music and utilize its power to inspire diverse audiences and communities.  The ensemble delivers riveting performances that bring classical music to life in innovative ways with daring energy and commitment.  The Criers share their joy of unconventional music making with local and international audiences.


A Far Cry’s democratic approach to music making empowers each Crier individually, and the group as a whole, to deliver exhilarating “break-the-mold” performances.  They have a unique, self-conducted rotating leadership model that offers Criers total ownership of musical and artistic decision-making.  This egalitarian approach provides each of them great inherent satisfaction, resulting in greater individual investment.
