Kronos and Carnegie Hall to host Fifty for the Future Master Class for Music Educators

Kronos is absolutely thrilled to be collaborating with The Academy for Teachers and Kronos’ Fifty for the Future Lead Partner Carnegie Hall to introduce music educators to the Kronos Learning Repertoire at a masterclass on Wednesday, February 15, from 9 a.m.–4 p.m., in NYC.

With Kronos, the event will explore several pieces of contemporary string quartet music that are approachable by middle and high school instrumentalists and available for free online. These works are part of Kronos’ Fifty for the Future education initiative, which is commissioning 50 string quartets from 25 female and 25 male composers and musicians from around the world. The deadline to apply for the class is this Thursday, January 12. Click here to learn more!

Tesla Quartet Plays Garth Knox’s Satellites

The emerging Tesla Quartet was awarded a two-week residency at Aldeburgh Music, through which they had the opportunity to invite a tutor of their choice to work with them for three days. As the Quartet plans to include Garth Knox‘s Fifty for the Future piece Satellites in their future programming, they invited Knox to coach them at Aldeburgh, resulting in some very fruitful working sessions.

We’re thrilled to see these talented young musicians engaging with Kronos’ Fifty for the Future, and we can’t wait to see where they take Knox’s Satellites next season!
