Kronos will ring every possible bell.

“Things were turned upside down. There were terrifying things in the air… they found their way into ‘Black Angels.’” - George Crumb

Kronos was founded in 1973 after David Harrington heard “Black Angels” on the radio late one night and discovered there was music in the world that could express what he and so many others were feeling at the time.

Kronos will continue to play “Black Angels” and Terry Riley’s “One Earth, One People, One Love” along with countless other pieces that both challenge and energize, and will keep searching for the music that feels right today, next week, next month, for the next four years and beyond.

In the words of Leonard Cohen: “Ring the bells that still can ring. Forget your perfect offering. There is a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in.”

Kronos will ring every possible bell.
