Kronos Quartet Partners with Face the Music Youth New Music Ensemble


On Mon, Feb 5, 2018, the Grammy-winning Kronos Quartet joined Kaufman Music Center’s youth new music ensemble Face the Music to perform new works at the Ecstatic Music Festival. The two ensembles performed separately and together at Merkin Concert Hall. This concert was made possible thanks to the generosity of the Eugene M. Lang Foundation, and was dedicated to Eugene Lang's legacy. The Foundation’s Executive Director, Lauren McGrail, was in attendance and is pictured below, center.

Also pictured below, center right, is Christina Mason, co-trustee of the Barbara Bell Cumming Charitable Trust, which generously underwrote Kronos Quartet’s 2017-18 residency with Face the Music. This residency started in 2011, enabling Kronos Quartet to coach and mentor six of Face the Music’s string quartets and perform as part of Kaufman Music Center’s Ecstatic Music Festival.
