The Kronos Quartet isn’t your ordinary string quartet. For over 45 years, the San Francisco based ensemble has shattered audience expectations with its mix of classical and contemporary performances. Join CPR Classical on January 12 for a night of compelling music when this renowned group takes the stage.
To date, the Kronos Quartet has commissioned over 1,000 new works or arrangements. They have recorded or shared the stage with a variety of musicians and creatives including: soprano Dawn Upshaw; jazz legend Pat Metheny; poet Allen Ginsberg, Astor Piazzolla, the Modern Jazz Quartet, Tom Waits, David Bowie, Paul McCartney, Björk, and many more. These collaborations and the quartet's pursuit of excellence drive their goal to expand our understanding of music’s unique role as a powerful force in society.
CPR Classical presents the Kronos Quartet and your chance for tickets to their exceptional performance. The Newman Center program will include several works from the Fifty for the Future project, in addition to pieces written for or arranged by the group inspired by The Everly Brothers, Mahalia Jackson, and Billie Holiday.
