For more than 40 years, Kronos Quartet has been at the forefront of contemporary classical music, building an eclectic repertoire for string quartet through its collaborations with contemporary composers and genre-defying artists. This season, the Grammy Award-winning quartet returns to Orange County with a new work by award-winning composer Philip Glass, co-commissioned by Donald and Karen Evarts for the Philharmonic Society.

Referred to as “the pre-eminent contemprary music group in the world,” Kronos Quartet’s music has been featured in films such as Requiem for a Dream, The Fountain, 21 Grams, Heat, and True Stories. Kronos’ work has also garnered numerous awards, including a Grammy for Best Chamber Music Performance (2004) and “Musicians of the Year” (2003) from Musical America.
