For more than 40 years, San Francisco’s Kronos Quartet has embodied a spirit of fearless exploration with a commitment to continually reimagine the string quartet experience. A response to the 2017 executive orders limiting travel to the U.S., Music for Change highlights the rich diversity of artistic voices from the original seven “banned countries.” The Grammy Award-winning ensemble will perform a new program featuring music from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.
