KRONOS QUARTET at the Osher Marin JCC
Please note, this event has expired.
KRONOS QUARTET will bring their unique artistic vision & dedication to experimentation to the Kanbar Center at the Osher Marin JCC on Sun June 11 @ 5pm.
For more than 40 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 re-imagining the string quartet experience. In the process, Kronos has become one of the world’s most celebrated and influential ensembles, performing thousands of concerts worldwide, releasing more than 60 recordings, collaborating with many of the world’s most eclectic composers and performers, and commissioning more than 900 works and arrangements for string quartet.
A Grammy winner, Kronos is also the recipient of both the Polar Music and Avery Fisher Prizes. With a staff of ten, the nonprofit Kronos Performing Arts Association (KPAA) manages all aspects of Kronos’ work, including the multi-year education and legacy project Fifty for the Future: The Kronos Learning Repertoire, which is commissioning—and distributing for free—the first learning library of contemporary repertoire for string quartet.
“I’ve always wanted the string quartet to be vital, and energetic, and alive, and cool, and not afraid to kick ass and be absolutely beautiful and ugly if it has to be. But it has to be expressive of life. To tell the story with grace and humor and depth. And to tell the whole story, if possible.”
