Awe-Inspiring Kronos Quartet to Perform at Universal Preservation Hall, Jan. 29

SARATOGA SPRINGS – Appearing at Universal Preservation Hall on Jan. 29th is the award-winning Kronos Quartet. A string quartet like no other, the renowned outfit defies boundaries and continues to show just how well-versed they are in performance with their ever-continuous touring schedule.

For nearly 50 years, San Francisco’s Grammy-winning Kronos Quartet and its nonprofit Kronos Performing Arts Association have reimagined the string quartet experience through thousands of concerts, more than 70 recordings, collaborations with performers across a myriad of genres, and more than 1,000 commissioned works from composers worldwide, including as part of the monumental 50 for the Future: The Kronos Learning Repertoire, an online library of 50 compositions offered for free to musicians everywhere. The San Francisco quartet consists of David Harrington (violin), John Sherba (violin), Hank Dutt (viola), and Sunny Yang (cello). Kronos has received over 40 awards, including the Polar Music, Avery Fisher, and Edison Klassiek Oeuvre Prizes, some of the most prestigious awards given to musicians.

The Kronos Quartet has broken the boundaries of what string quartets do.
