String quartet musicians from Kaufman Music Center’s Face the Music teen new music program join accomplished high school musicians from across the U.S. for a performance of six new pieces commissioned by Kronos Quartet’s 50 for the Future project, a free library of fifty contemporary works designed to guide string quartets in developing and honing the skills required for the performance of 21st-century repertoire.
