Kronos’ Fifty for the Future at UCLA

We’re headed to Los Angeles this week for a residency at the Center for the Art of Performance at UCLA, a Legacy Partner of Kronos’ Fifty for the Future! We are deeply honored to join SITI Company Anne Bogart, Robert Wilson and Laurie Anderson as a CAP UCLA Artist Fellow, a program “dedicated to celebrating masters of their craft.”

If you’re in LA, we’ll be performing at UCLA Royce Hall on Friday at 8PM, the same day we release materials for the next five Fifty for the Future compositions. The first half of the concert will feature new works commissioned from Scottish violist Garth Knox, Trio Da Kali’s balafon player Fodé Lassana Diabaté, Inuit throat singer Tanya Tagaq, Azerbaijani contemporary composer Franghiz Ali-Zadeh, Canada’s “brilliant musical scientist” Nicole Lizée, and Indian violin virtuoso Kala Ramnath for Kronos’ Fifty for the Future education initiative.

The second half features “Beyond Zero,” a multimedia spectacle with score by Aleksandra Vrebalov and film by Bill Morrison.

We’re thrilled to also be playing a benefit in support of the free K-12 arts-education program Design for Sharing at CAP UCLA, as well as a concert through that program for LA-area 4th, 5th and 6th graders. It’s going to be a busy week, but a cosmic one!

One final note of gratitude: We thank the Center for the Art of Performance at UCLA for being a Legacy Partner of Fifty for the Future: The Kronos Learning Repertoire.
