KRONOS QUARTET Start Date: Saturday 5/4/2019 — End Date: Saturday 5/4/2019 Admission:$22 – $40 For 45 years, San Francisco’s Kronos Quartet – David Harrington (violin), John Sherba (violin), Hank Dutt (viola), and Sunny Yang (cello) – has combined a spirit of fearless exploration with a commitment to continually reimagine the string quartet experience. In the process, Kronos has become one of the world’s most celebrated and influential ensembles, performing thousands of concerts, releasing more than 60 recordings, collaborating with an eclectic mix of composers and performers, and commissioning over 1000 works and arrangements for string quartet. A jewel in the Bay Area’s crown of creativity and music, Kronos has gained respect and notoriety internationally. It is no wonder that the Los Angeles Times writes ‘The quartet remains as geographically, politically and spiritually feisty as ever. Forget about genre; Kronos made that an irrelevant term ages ago.” They have won over 40 awards, including the prestigious Polar Music and Avery Fisher Prizes and, most recently, the WOMEX Artist Award (the first US-based musicians to ever do so). The nonprofit Kronos Performing Arts Association manages all aspects of Kronos’ work, including the commissioning of new works, concert tours and home season performances, education programs, and a self-produced Kronos Festival. In 2015, Kronos launched Fifty for the Future: The Kronos Learning Repertoire, an education and legacy project that is commissioning—and distributing for free—the first learning library of contemporary repertoire for string quartet. The Kanbar Center for the Performing Arts is proud to present this creative, prestigious, amazingly talented quartet, and invite the community to experience Kronos Quartet for themselves in the our own Hoytt Theater. ‘The Kronos Quartet elevated a concert of music to a spiritual trip through our common humanity – it was universal, all-encompassing, fabulously inclusive.” – The Globe and Mail WHAT: A unique and contemporary string quartet experience SEATING: Reserved Table & General Admission Choices TICKETS: $22 – $40 Available at WHEN: Sat.
