  • This event has passed.

Based in San Francisco and revered around the globe, the Grammy-winning quartet has redefined and re-energized the sound of the string quartet for more than forty years.

With over 850 commissioned works and arrangements to its credit, representing composers from five continents, Kronos is an unrivaled innovator in the Western classical tradition and an ever-curious explorer of other idioms ranging from jazz, blues, and indie rock to the folk, classical, and traditional music of other cultures.

The quartet performs a repertoire from around the world, including new works from the multi-year Kronos commissioning, residency, and educational initiative Fifty for the Future: The Kronos Learning Repertoire.

Washington Performing Arts performances at Sixth & I are made possible by the Abramson Family Foundation.
