A Spring Afternoon with Kronos benefitting Fifty for the Future: The Kronos Learning Repertoire

On Sunday, April 30th, from 3 to 6:00 p.m., Kronos will host an intimate afternoon filled with music and inspiration at a private home in Stanford, California, to benefit Fifty for the Future: The Kronos Learning Repertoire. The musical program features Kronos Quartet and two Bay Area-based student ensembles – Dragon String Quartet from Ruth Asawa San Francisco School for the Arts and Claudius Quartet from Young Chamber Musicians – performing recent work commissioned by Kronos’ Fifty for the Future, including West Coast premieres of string quartets by Laurie Anderson and Rhiannon Giddens. After the outdoor concert, enjoy appetizers, drinks, and conversation with the artists, as well as special guests like Joan Jeanrenaud, former longtime Kronos cellist and Fifty for the Future composer, on the grounds of our hosts’ beautifully restored 1914 home.

Tickets are $250. All proceeds benefit Kronos’ Fifty for the Future, a major initiative of the San Francisco-based 501(c)3 nonprofit Kronos Performing Arts Association. Capacity is limited. Please RSVP by April 15, 2017. Contact Mason Dille, Development Manager 415.731.3533, email

Fifty for the Future: The Kronos Learning Repertoire is a two-year-old education and legacy project that is commissioning – and distributing for free – the first learning library of contemporary repertoire for string quartet. With the goal to commission and release 50 new works from 25 women and 25 men from around the world by 2020, the program has already released online ten learning modules made up of scores and parts, recordings, videos, performance notes, composer interviews, and other supplemental materials. These materials have already been viewed by tens of thousands people in over 40 countries. Learn more

This event is made possible by the generous sponsorship of Robert Gordon, Andrea Lunsford, Donlyn Lyndon, Alice Wingwall, and others.
