KRONOS FESTIVAL 2018 closes with the return of two more festival favorites: the vibrant and expressive San Francisco Girls Chorus, which joins Kronos Quartet to debut a new work by longtime Kronos collaborator Aleksandra Vrebalov, and the masterful performer of Vietnamese traditional instruments Vân-Ánh Võ. Kronos gives the local premiere of Oakland-based composer Zachary Watkins’ Peace Be Till, which is inspired by the moment Mahalia Jackson prompted Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. to go off script during his “I Have a Dream” speech. Kronos is joined by artist-in-residence David Coulter to play music from his award-winning soundtrack to A.C.T.’s theatrical production of A Thousand Splendid Suns. Kronos also plays recent works by Iranian composer Aftab Darvishi and Russian-American composer Yevgeniy Sharlat.
