Voices of Hope

The life-affirming power of music and the arts during times of crisis comes under the spotlight in Carnegie Hall’s Voices of Hope. This online festival examines the resilience of artists and explores the works they felt compelled to create despite—and often because of—appalling circumstances and human tragedy.

Free Online Event

Kronos Quartet performs a powerful program that includes arrangements by Jacob Garchik, and selections by Terry Riley and others. The centerpiece is an excerpt from Mary Kouyoumdjian’s Silent Cranes, inspired by an Armenian folk song and depicting the voices of those tragically lost more than a century ago in the Armenian Genocide of 1915. Also included is a selection from Zachary James Watkins’s Peace Be Till, commissioned by Carnegie Hall and featuring the recorded voice of Clarence B. Jones, speechwriter and personal counsel to Martin Luther King Jr.

Streaming online from April 23 through May 31, 2021.

 

 

 

Kronos’ performance will be available for on-demand streaming between April 24 – May 31, 2021 on Carnegie Hall’s website.
