NEC Chamber Orchestra + A Far Cry

| New England Conservatory: Jordan Hall

The NEC Chamber Orchestra is joined by A Far Cry in Strauss' Metamorphosen.

Directed by NEC bass faculty and founding member of the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, Donald Palma, the NEC Chamber Orchestra consists of a select group of students who work together to perform some of the most beloved works from the chamber orchestra repertoire...and without a conductor!

Members of the Boston-based conductorless chamber orchestra A Far Cry joins NEC's conductorless ensemble for Strauss' work composed for 23 individual string parts.

Welcome to NEC at 150! Every generation of musicians remake and change New England Conservatory. Some, like Gunther Schuller, continue to influence our music beyond their lifetimes. Others contribute for decades, pushing the sense of what's possible by their own examples. The entire season is stuffed with chances to see the NEC legacy in exceptional, infectious, passionate action. Don't miss them!
