Join us at 7PM on Thursday, May 9th at the Montclair Public Library for the last "Show and Tell" event of the season! This time, Kronos Quartet founder David Harrington sits down for an intimate public discussion about the Kronos Quartet's unique history and musical performance style. Don't miss it! All Show and Tell events are free and open to the public.
All that will change in an electrifying season finale as artist/composer Laurie Anderson and the visionary Kronos Quartet perform Landfall, a new evening-length piece, in their very first collaboration. Composed by Anderson and arranged by Kronos Quartet, the piece will include written text and a dozen new songs that herald a new synthesis of sonic invention.
Landfall was commissioned by The Office of Arts and Cultural Programming, Montclair State University, NJ; Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center, University of Maryland, College Park; Adelaide Festival, Australia; Barbican, London; Perth International Arts Festival, Australia; Stanford Live, Stanford University; and the University of Texas Performing Arts Center, Austin. This tour of Kronos Quartet is made possible by a grant from the Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation with support from the National Endowment for the Arts.
