Kronos Quartet: Music For Change—The Banned Countries

October 20, 2018 - 7:30pm to 9:00pm
Bing Concert Hall


As a direct protest to the 2017 Executive Orders limiting travel to the United States by people from largely Muslim-majority countries, San Francisco’s Grammy Award-winning Kronos Quartet premieres a new program featuring music from the original seven “banned” countries: Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen, among others. Kronos’ Music for Change: The Banned Countries highlights a rich diversity of artistic voices, including works composed specifically for the performance, new collaborations, and signature works from their extensive repertoire.
