Event description

Description

Join the Harvard Ed Portal and Grammy-nominated string orchestra A Far Cry for an open rehearsal and performance featuring a discussion with composer and New England Conservatory (NEC) faculty member Mehmet Ali Sanlikol, in conversation with his NEC colleague, ethnomusicologist Robert Labaree. The discussion will focus on Sanlikol’s new work, A Gentleman of Istanbul, commissioned for A Far Cry, and the group will also perform excerpts of the piece. The evening will offer a unique view into the creative process and a chance to learn about the inspiration for A Far Cry's travel-themed September program.

Make sure to keep an eye out for future Ed Portal programs with A Far Cry in January and April!
