For 45 years, San Francisco’s Grammy-winning Kronos Quartet has reimagined and redefined the string quartet experience. Kronos’ fifth annual music festival spotlights their frequent work with singers and storytellers in four concerts and other events over three days.

The Kronos life journey [has become] a relentless endeavor to open up the world’s music for everyone. If the conventional assemblage of two violins, viola and cello can be expanded, listeners will develop a richer musical perspective.
