We just played three concerts in three days - first, our Jamaica Plain debut at the English High School was a great event. Representatives from The Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (MSPCC) and Bikes Not Bombs spoke eloquently and passionately about their organizations, and A Far Cry donated 100% of ticket revenue to the two wonderful area non-profits. Next, we returned to Pickman Hall at the Longy School of Music in Cambridge. A wonderful acoustic and an enthusiastic audience greeted A Far Cry, as we were joined by clarinetist David Singer in concert for the first time. We performed Copland's Clarinet Concerto again yesterday at St. Paul's Church in Brookline, and it is really cooking! Which is a good thing, since David and A Far Cry are bringing the Copland to the recording studio later today to finish up a CD of clarinet concertos. Robert Aldridge's Clarinet Concerto, a world premiere recording of a piece written specifically for David Singer, is already "in the can"!
Did you hear A Far Cry over the last couple of days? Please leave a comment to let us know what you thought!
