LUFKIN, TX. A FAR CRY Chamber Orchestra performs a program of classical music that is anything BUT classical in its presentation. From the first note 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. They call themselves Criers and create classical music in a non-traditional way – “conducterless!” 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). 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.

A FAR CRY, founded in 2007 and based in Boston, brims with personality or, better, personalities, many and varied. Depending on the piece, the spirited players may seem to frolic, tease, and taunt each other – then become somber to melancholy – followed by a fiery, buoyant finale. This groundbreaking string orchestra has been embraced throughout the world with more than two hundred performances, three albums, and a powerful presence on the Internet. The program will include works by Brahms, Vivaldi, Bartók, and William Walton – performed with an energy and exuberance which will likely leave the audience breathless.
