Santa Barbara Debut 18-piece String Orchestra A thoroughly modern, century-spanning, globe-trotting sonic adventure. Catch the group live. Boston Magazine Grammy-nominated string orchestra A Far Cry brims with personality or, better, personalities, many and varied (The New York Times). In the self-conducted orchestra, decisions are made collectively and leadership rotates among the players, a structure that has led to consistently thoughtful, innovative and unpredictable programming and has engendered collaborations with artists such as Yo-Yo Ma, Roomful of Teeth, the Silkroad Ensemble and Vijay Iyer. Now, the Boston-based ensemble makes its Santa Barbara debut with a program reflecting the groups ambition and creativity. Program J.S.
