A Performance and Conversation with the World-Renowned Kronos Quartet
San Francisco’s Kronos Quartet is one of the world’s most celebrated and influential ensembles. They have performed thousands of concerts and released more than 50 recordings. For 40 years, they have continually reimagined the string-quartet experience. The nonprofit Kronos Performing Arts Association (KPAA) manages all aspects of the quartet's work. Together, the Kronos Quartet and KPAA have set a striking example of arts leadership, creating extraordinary change in the field of classical music through their vision, innovation and commitment to a lifetime of growth and change. In so doing, they have redefined what is possible for hundreds of young musicians. Join Kenneth Foster, director of USC's newly launched graduate Arts Leadership Program, for an interactive discussion/performance with these remarkable musicians. The event will be held on Thursday, April 24, at 7:30 p.m. in Bovard Auditorium. For more info, click here.
