About A Far Cry Chamber Orchestra

Five years ago, 17 young musicians bent on making music according to their own rules came together to form A Far Cry Chamber Orchestra. Since then, the group has enjoyed an exciting climb toward the highest ranks of today’s new generation of classical ensembles.

Hailed by the Boston Globe as “thrilling,” “intrepid,” and “brilliant,” A Far Cry explores the traditional boundaries of classical music, experimenting with the ways it is prepared, performed, and experienced.

Now in their fourth season, the group has been embraced throughout the world with more than 50 performances across America, three albums, and nearly 100,000 views on YouTube.

The CAS at OCCC will welcome Time for Three on Oct. 23 at 7 p.m. Back by popular demand, the self-described “classically trained garage band” will return to the college to present a concert that transcends traditional classification by including elements of classical, country-western, hip-hop, gypsy and jazz expressions, forming a blend all its own.

Tickets for each concert are now on sale: $25 for adults; $20 for seniors 55+ and OCCC adults; $10 for OCCC students and youth, ages 17 and older. To purchase your individual or season tickets, please choose from the following options:
