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.

[Kronos] isn’t of an age but for all time—a daring band of virtuosi who’ve performed around the globe and brought home sounds from everywhere, spreading their lifesaving, mind-expanding, soul-uplifting vibrations like transcendental evangelists speaking in tongues.
