A Far Cry at Yellow Barn

A Far Cry has been invited by Yellow Barn Music Festival to work with their Young Artists Program this coming summer in a weekend residency to include both workshops and a concert. On Saturday, June 21st, 2008, we will present a full concert at Big Barn in Putney, Vermont, and for the better part of Sunday, A Far Cry will be working with the 30 talented, aspiring high-school instrumentalists and composers from across the country in workshops. Topics of exploration will likely include communication and collaboration, starting your own chamber ensemble, and how to rehearse a 16-piece, conductorless chamber orchestra without losing your mind! We hope also to have a chance to perform side-by-side with some of the musicians in the Program. Additionally, we will be exploring sketches of works by some of the young composers in residency. Around this same time (mid-to-late June) we are in the process of organizing a couple of other concerts in the Vermont area. Hopefully we will have the opportunity to return to our fabulously supportive Montpelier audience! Join our mailing list to stay informed!
