Sad News from Kronos

It is with tremendous sadness that we announce the death of our beloved colleague Laurence “Larry” Neff, Kronos Lighting Designer and Production Director for more than 25 years. Last Thursday, Larry suffered a fatal fall while pruning a tree at his mother’s home in England.

The Kronos Quartet, the staff and board of directors of the Kronos Performing Arts Association, and the extended Kronos family are heartbroken by the tragic loss of our dear friend—a visionary artist whose masterful work has been synonymous with and inseparable from Kronos performances for decades. 

Our thoughts are with Larry’s family, friends, and colleagues at this very difficult time.

Kickstarter: David Harrington R&D Fund

The David Harrington Research & Development Fund was created in 2006 to provide Kronos with funds to fully realize projects that might not otherwise be possible. When it is your mission to create and perform groundbreaking work, sometimes you need to act quickly to make projects happen now, rather than lose an opportunity.

Over the past eight years, the Kronos founder’s R&D Fund has commissioned nearly 50 new works and arrangements, purchased new instruments, and much more. After commissioning a myriad of new works during our 40th anniversary season, the “little piggy bank” is empty and David’s R&D Fund needs to be replenished! $25,000 will help fund two new works including a new piece by longtime collaborator Derek Charke, and two new arrangements in the 2014/15 season.

Please help replenish David’s R&D Fund for the 2014/15 season, so these four commissions and arrangements can happen!
