A Far Cry chamber orchestra
This week’s SymphonyCast episode, with guest host Steve Seel, features two concerts in one! First, we’ll hear a celebration of the strength of women, inspired by the legacy of Sojourner Truth’s “Ain’t I a Woman” speech at the 1851 Women’s Rights Convention in Akron, Ohio. This program is a meditation — literally and figuratively — on the deep well of ingenuity, wisdom and grit of women across time and around the globe. Then A Far Cry performs its signature work, Tchaikovsky’s Serenade for Strings, from memory on 18 of the finest instruments in the world.
