In memory: Larry Neff

On the fourth anniversary of Laurence “Larry” Neff’s death, we remember our beloved colleague, who served as Kronos’ Lighting Designer and Production Director for more than 25 years. He was a dear friend and a visionary artist whose masterful work was synonymous with and inseparable from Kronos’ performances for decades. Our thoughts are with Larry’s family, friends, and colleagues today.
