  A Far Cry
The classical music scene in Boston is booming. Any given night you can hear the Boston Symphony Orchestra at Symphony Hall, Baroque music, cutting-edge avante garde music, pick-up community orchestras, and solo shows in intimate club settings. 

If you wander down South Street in Jamaica Plain you'll catch a small orchestra in an unassuming storefront, rehearsing for their next show, broadcasting - unplugged - to the surrounding neighborhood. The orchestra is A Far Cry, and they've been part of the Boston music scene for five years. They play music that's never been heard or recorded, they re-envision classical music masterworks with fresh interpretations, and they seek out collaborations with indie bands.

In 2009, A Far Cry became the orchestra-in-residence at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. Today, we talk with two Criers about the classical music scene in Boston, and how their group is upending - and paying homage to - the classical music world.
