Announcing Kronos Festival 2019March 07, 2019

Kronos Quartet/Kronos Performing Arts Association (KPAA) is pleased to present Kronos Festival 2019, Kronos’ fifth annual, three-day music festival, at SFJAZZ Center on May 30–June 1, 2019. Kronos Festival 2019 will highlight the voices of singers, storytellers and activists over three evening concerts, a Saturday morning family concert and Kronos Labs, free public events that are new this year. Kronos has long collaborated with vocal artists, including in its recent Grammy Award–winning album Landfall (Nonesuch Records) with Laurie Anderson and its new album Placeless (Kirkelig Kulturverksted) with Iranian singers Mahsa and Marjan Vahdat.

During the festival, a wide range of artists will join Kronos on stage. Experimental duo CocoRosie, Malian griot singer Hawa Kassé Mady Diabaté (of Trio Da Kali), and the San Francisco Girls Chorus are all returning from last year’s festival. In addition, folk musicians Sam Amidon and Lee Knight, composer and guitarist Jherek Bischoff, writer Rebecca Solnit and filmmaker Sam Green will perform. Highlighting Kronos’ legacy of mentorship, students from the Ruth Asawa San Francisco School of the Arts once again take center stage during the festival. Kronos is honored that Valérie Sainte-Agathe, artistic director of the San Francisco Girls Chorus and frequent Kronos collaborator, will be Kronos Festival 2019’s Artist-in-Residence. Additional guests will be announced. Explore complete programs and buy tickets >
