The adventurous, Grammy-winning Kronos Quartet – one of the most celebrated and influential ensembles of our time – joins NYC’s acclaimed youth new music ensemble Face the Music (“a force in the New York new-music world” – New York Times) to perform new works written for Kronos’ “Fifty for the Future,” a commissioning, education and legacy project showcasing contemporary approaches to the string quartet that features new works by some of today’s foremost composers. The two ensembles will perform separately and together. Face the Music will perform Yotam Haber's From the Book and Kala Ramnath's Amrit.
