Fifty for the Future with Kronos Quartet

PERFORMANCE DETAILS

VENUE: Jack Singer Concert Hall

Category:
,

One of the greatest forces in the string quartet world for the past 40 years, the Kronos Quartet unites with Calgary’s own Lincoln Park Quartet, an elite ensemble cultivated at the Mount Royal Conservatory. This cross-generational collaboration, featuring new works by composers handpicked for the Kronos Quartet’s Fifty for the Future: The Kronos Learning Repertoire, is on the breaking edge of what classical chamber music means today.

KRONOS QUARTET, string quartet
LINCOLN PARK QUARTET, string quartet

Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra is proud to be a Commissioning Partner of Kronos’ Fifty for the Future, an education initiative that is commissioning new string quartets – 25 by women composers and 25 by men composers – that are designed expressly for the training of students and emerging professionals.
