On May 11, Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance gave an Honorary Fellowship to Kronos Quartet. All four members of the quartet – David Harrington, John Sherba, Hank Dutt and Sunny Yang – and Janet Cowperthwaite, managing director of Kronos Performing Arts Association, were deeply honored by the citation read by Dr. Claire Mera-Nelson, Director of Music at Trinity Laban, which included the following tribute:
“The Kronos Quartet’s significance extends far beyond the realms of classical chamber music, and for us at Trinity Laban, they provide an exceptional model of the vision, mission and values we aspire to exemplify. Their commitment to making a contribution to society – striving through music to inspire those who hear it to greater things – is truly inspirational. It is no exaggeration to say that thanks to their work, our conception of what a string quartet can be has changed radically, and for the better. It is for these reasons that Trinity Laban wishes today to honour Kronos Quartet with this Honorary Fellowship.”

Since our last tour in the UK, we’ve gathered a bounty of new compositions and arrangements that we can’t wait to share when we hit seven venues in England and Scotland this May. Among the new works is a piece titled Seiche, which is a form of wave found in still water. Composer Martin Green, who is best known for performing with the alternative folk band Lau, will join Kronos on stage in London for the world premiere, as well as in Bristol and Edinburgh. He will play his new noise device, the “Kronososcillator,” developed especially for Seiche. Visit of our Concerts page to see our complete tour dates and locations.
