Kronos at 40

6265 Crescent Rd.
Four decades of experimental creation and performance have made the Kronos Quartet one of the most recognized and celebrated ensembles in the world. Their impressive list of accolades includes the Avery Fisher and Polaris Music Prize, as well as a GRAMMY for Best Chamber Music Performance.
To kick off the Chan Centre’s 2013-14 season, Kronos will give a world premiere performance of Philip Glass’ String Quartet No. 6. The new work is co-commissioned by the Chan Centre in honour of Kronos’ 40th anniversary season.
Philip Glass will also give an exclusive lecture for ticketholders, which will take place just prior to the concert.
