Boston's June Punch Bowl fund showcases a triple-whammy of classical music ensembles. The featured orchestra, choir, and jack-of-all-trades music ensemble each present classical music with an engaging twist: through collaborating with young professional musicians, premiering new works, and/or working with living composers. Who are you going to vote for?
A Far Cry
This self-conducted chamber orchestra chock full of young musicians puts collaboration front and center. With tours taking the group all over the world, A Far Cry calls Boston its home and serves as the Chamber Orchestra in Residence at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum.
The all-female Lorelei Ensemble performs standards and underheard early music and premiers brand new compositions with the aid of several composers in residence. The choir has premiered more than 30 new works since its founding in 2007.
Juventas New Music Ensemble
Juventas New Music Ensemble has a strict rule of only presenting new works by composers under the age of 35. Since 2005, they’ve presented new music by over 150 different young composers with an ever-adapting ensemble based around seven core musicians.
