"A FAR CRY" ORCHESTRA BENEFIT CONCERT FOR BNB
Friday November 7th
Doors at 6:30, music at 7:00

at English High School Auditorium
144 McBride Street
Jamaica Plain, MA 02130
(near the Green St T station)

Come out for an evening of classical music to support Bikes Not  
Bombs!  A great big thanks to A Far Cry for coming to us and offering  
this amazing benefit.  The November 7th concert will feature Handel's  
Concerto Grosso op.6 in Gm, Tchaikovsky's Serenade, and Golijov's  
Last Round.

Hailed by the Boston Globe as "one of Boston's most promising  
classical music groups," A Far Cry is making waves, experimenting  
with how music is performed and heard. A tightly-knit group of 17  
young professional musicians, A Far Cry formed in early 2007, seeking  
the freedom and flexibility of a string quartet as well as the power  
and beauty of an orchestra.  Their high level of musicianship has  
drawn Boston Symphony Orchestra members to join them as soloists for  
select pieces.  For more info see http://www.afarcry.org/

Operating with rotating leadership and no conductor, A Far Cry is  
generating interest not only in the concert hall, but also with its  
innovative model. All artistic decisions are made by vote as a  
collective, and the musicians take care of ALL the behind-the-scenes  
work, from booking concerts to exploring the means of fundraising.

A 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation, A Far Cry is also committed  
to social change and harmony, donating proceeds from concerts to  
homeless shelters in the Boston area, and partnering with other non- 
profits such as the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. A Far Cry's 2008-09  
season holds engagements at the Yellow Barn and Kneisel Hall  
Festivals, concerts from Minnesota to Florida, and a growing hometown  
series in Boston.  Their newest benefit concert will support Bikes  
Not Bombs on November 7th.
