A Far Cry, "The Blue Hour" with Luciana Souza
A Hancher Commission
A Far Cry is a musical collective that has developed an innovative process for group decision-making and shared leadership. That spirit of innovation extends to The Blue Hour, a new work the chamber orchestra commissioned and which was created collaboratively by five female composers—Caroline Shaw, Shara Nova, Sarah Kirkland Snider, Angélica Negrón, and Rachel Grimes. The libretto for the song-cycle is the poem “On Earth” by Carolyn Forché, from her book Blue Hour. Grammy Award-winning jazz vocalist Luciana Souza joins A Far Cry in performance of The Blue Hour.
