Kronos at 40

Long-time Chan Centre audience favourites, the Kronos Quartet will perform the world premiere of a new string quartet by pre-eminent composer Philip Glass to kick off our 2013/14 season. The new work is co-commissioned by the Chan Centre in honour of Kronos' 40th anniversary season.

Four decades of experimental creation and performance have made the Kronos Quartet one of the most recognized and celebrated ensembles in the world. Their impressive list of accolades includes the Avery Fisher and Polar Music Prizes, as well as a GRAMMY award for Best Chamber Music Performance. Their collaborators include iconic and diverse artists such as John Adams, Allen Ginsberg, David Bowie, Tanya Tagaq, Asha Bhosle, Wu Man, and Homayun Sakhi who shared the Chan Centre stage with Kronos in 2011.

Dal Grauer Memorial Lecture: Phillip Glass will give an exclusive lecture for ticketholders, which will take place at 6:30 PM in the Chan Shun Concert Hall.
