A FAR CRY Chamber Orchestra is a “Sensational Jam”

Inspiring Musicians Offering MASTER CLASS & Pre-Show TALK September 22nd 

LUFKIN, TX. A FAR CRY Chamber Orchestra is leading the way for a new generation of young fearless musicians, as they test the traditional boundaries of classical music. These 15 orchestral trailblazers, educated in the finest schools of music and conservatories, perform Brahms, Vivaldi, Bartók, and William Walton – with NO conductor! You will not only hear the music – but you will see the energy, the fire, and the emotion these young musicians bring to the stage. The Criers as they call themselves will present a Master Class at 10am Saturday, 9/22 with four local string students on stage at the Temple Theater. For those that want to observe the class, theater seating is open to the public and free of charge to students, musicians, and all lovers of classical music. Theatergoers are invited to a Pre-Show Talk starting at 6:30 in the gallery of the Temple Theater, as well as a meet & greet after the show. CDs will be available for purchase and to have signed. Angelina Arts Alliance presents this classical string ensemble Saturday, September 22nd at 7:30 pm in the Temple Theater. Tickets are $31-$40 (Premium/$50). All unsold tickets go on sale for half- price beginning one hour before performance time. Tickets sold subject to availability. A FAR CRY is sponsored by KTRE-ABC 9, J.E. Kingham Construction Company, and Lee TranServices, Inc. Season Sponsors are Memorial Health System of East Texas and Brookshire Brothers Food & Pharmacy.

          When asked about their upcoming trip to Lufkin, violinist Jesse Irons stated, “We are so excited to be returning to Texas, which feels like a second home to us. We perform across the country, but Texas is special – there are actually native Texans in the group, so we always love performing there! We’re looking forward to getting to know Lufkin.”
