A Far CryQUINCY, MA Oct 3, 2008— The conductor-less string orchestra A Far Cry, one of Boston’s most acclaimed new professional ensembles, will present a concert as part of Eastern Nazarene College’s Musica Eclectica Concert Series on Thursday, October 16, 2008 at 7:30 p.m. The concert will be held at the Wollaston Church of the Nazarene on the ENC campus (37 East Elm Ave.). Student tickets are $5; senior citizens are $10, and general admission is $15. Tickets are available at the door.

Titled "Homage," the concert will include music by Mozart, Britten, Muffat, and modern master Arvo Part.

Recently profiled in a major article in The Boston Globe, A Far Cry has brought their energetic and musically sensitive performances to audiences across the country. A collectively-led 16-piece string orchestra, A Far Cry made its debut in May 2007 with a series of concerts that emphasized energy and enthusiasm as much as refinement and precision. Audience reaction was overwhelming:

"It’s not just that their playing is polished and immaculate, but they play with exuberance, palpable joy, exquisite ensemble and, most wonderful of all, a deep love of music and each other," wrote Benjamin Zander, conductor of the Boston Philharmonic.

Eastern Nazarene College is located at 23 East Elm Ave. in Quincy. More information may be found at www.afarcry.org. www.wconaz.org, and www.musica-eclectica.org, or by calling 617-745-3715.
