Where are the Criers? December 10-16, 2014


Boston Baroque

Even when A Far Cry isn't playing our own concerts together, the individual Criers can always be found out and about, playing in various different projects around the Boston area—and beyond! Playing in other groups is a great chance for us to expand our musical horizons, and bring a greater repertoire and exploratory spirit back to A Far Cry itself. And it's a chance for you, should you so desire, to get your Crier fix!

Boston Baroque: Messiah

Friday, December 12, 2014, 8:00pm; Jordan Hall Saturday, December 13, 2014, 7:30pm; Jordan Hall "Boston Baroque's annual Messiah is a combination of fleet, stylish, sincere, and moving. Dashon Burton from Roomful of Teeth is the bass soloist this year, and I pretty much expect him to kill 'The Trumpet Shall Sound.' There's also a free community show at Dorchester's Strand Theater on Sunday!" —Sarah Darling
