“The Kronos Quartet has broken the boundaries of what string quartets do.” - The New York Times

One of the most celebrated and influential groups of our era, and longtime partners of Washington Performing Arts, Kronos Quartet has revolutionized the music landscape, releasing more than 70 recordings of extraordinary breadth and creativity, including collaborations with the world’s most inventive and distinguished composers and performers. Their dynamic and often large-scale performances have been landmark, historic events, introducing new works, cultures, and artists to audiences. The Quartet celebrates 50 years of artistic leadership and transformative music making with a concert featuring music from their legacy initiative, 50 For the Future: The Learning Repertoire, a series of commissions by composers from around the world. Don’t miss the opportunity to hear these extraordinary musicians at Sixth & I.
