To crown its ten wonderful years as the Gardner Museum’s Ensemble-in-Residence, the Museum is thrilled to bring together two of Boston’s most energetic musical visionaries: A Far Cry and Moe Pope.

Bostonian Moe Pope is an indie hip-hop artist, songwriter, contemporary painter, and MC of the indie hip-hop group STL GLD. As a lyricist, Pope chronicles the stories of his life and community by touching upon subjects like fatherhood, relationships, and the human condition.

Moe Pope and A Far Cry are keen to explore musical common ground: “The parallels between classical music and hip-hop are real: the practice of re- interpreting source material, the importance of poetry and text, and the difficult truth that many of the forms’ greatest achievements have been the product of adversity and suffering. This collaboration will tease these themes out into the open.”
