Last updated on February 11, 2019

A Far Cry orchestra didn’t win either Grammy it was nominated for, but they certainly took it in stride, and offered an alternative future timeline in which they did win!

Based out of Jamaica Plain, A Far Cry orchestra’s engineer Tom Caulfield and mastering engineer Jesse Lewis were nominated for Best Engineered Album, Classical for “Visions and Variations.” The orchestra was nominated for Best Chamber Music/Small Ensemble Performance for “Visions and Variations.”

Formed in 2007, the orchestra has collaborated with Yo-Yo Ma, Simone Dinnerstein, Roomful of Teeth, the Silk Road Ensemble, Vijay Iyer, David Krakauer and more.

This was not the first Grammy nomination for the group, as A Far Cry’s Crier Records had a nominated album “Dreams and Prayers” in 2014.

The very smiley group took non winning in stride by offering a glimpse at their acceptance speech in an alternative timeline.
