Music for Change: The Banned Countries

Program TBA

From Washington Performing Arts’s website: “In a potent and poignant artistic response to the 2017 Executive Orders limiting travel to the United States by people from largely Muslim-majority countries, the Grammy-winning Kronos Quartet performs works by composers from the original seven “banned countries”: Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen. The repertoire (TBA) will include signature Kronos works, new compositions from Kronos’ Fifty for the Future commissioning project (in which Washington Performing Arts is a partner), and more. On the inspiration for the project, Kronos founder, artistic director, and violinist David Harrington remarked, ‘Increasingly, I feel my role as an artist is to point in constructive musical and cultural directions as we attempt to help repair the torn fabric of our society.’”
