Music, Virtual & Streaming
6pm-7:30pm -- Virtual Cocktail Hour / Artistic Programming
Have you ever wondered how A Far Cry programs come to be? For this portion of the evening, dive head first into this process during an exclusive session guided by the Criers. But first, AFC violist / mixologist Jason Fisher will kick things off by leading the full group through a cocktail (or mocktail) mixing session. Once everyone has their drink of choice in hand, you'll join your assigned “tables,” or Zoom breakout rooms, with 10 guests and a Crier. The Criers will lead their "table" through a mock programming session of A Far Cry’s democratic process, and you'll create your own concert program submission. We’ll end by coming back together as a full group to vote on which programs are accepted into the “Soiree Program Vault!”
~Please note that no prior musical knowledge or experience is necessary to participate! Space is limited for this portion of the evening, and registration is first-come, first-served.

During this portion of the event, AFC will present musical selections from the Criers, entertaining “commercial breaks” showcasing our fantastic auction offerings, a message from Criers and some very special guest hellos, and a live Raise the Paddle.

Anytime -- Premiere of A Stradivari Serenade Mini Documentary
All Sponsors and Single Ticket (all access) ticket buyers will receive a private link to view the premiere of a mini documentary featuring A Far Cry's recent concert, A Stradivari Serenade. The documentary goes behind the scenes to explore the making of this event, during which A Far Cry performed its signature work, Tchaikovsky's Serenade for Strings, from memory on 18 of the finest instruments in the world - crafted by the likes of Stradivari, Guarneri, and Amati. The mini documentary includes interviews with the Criers, footage of them choosing their instruments from the vault at Reuning & Son Violins, and clips of their final performance at NEC's Jordan Hall. Guests will receive a permanent link and be invited to watch the documentary at their own leisure!
