    World-renowned new music powerhouses Kronos Quartet, Bang on a Can All-Stars and Chinese pipa virtuoso Wu Man team up with MIT’s own Gamelan Galak Tika and MIT Chamber Chorus for a 5-hour marathon concert featuring works by MIT’s Evan Ziporyn, Tod Machover, alum Christine Southworth, as well as Brian Eno and minimalist gurus Steve Reich & Terry Riley.

    Curated by Kenan Sahin Distinguished Professor of Music Evan Ziporyn, the evening will bring together, for the first time ever, two trailblazing ensembles of the contemporary classical world. The Kronos Quartet, for more than 30 years, has pursued a singular artistic vision, combining a spirit of fearless exploration with a commitment to expanding the range and context of the string quartet. In the process, the Grammy-winning Kronos has become one of the most celebrated and influential groups of our time, performing thousands of concerts worldwide, releasing more than 45 recordings of extraordinary breadth and creativity, commissioning more than 650 new works and arrangements for string quartet, and collaborating with renowned artists of myriad disciplines and styles from around the globe. The Bang on a Can All-Stars, with their unparalleled musicality, their international touring, award-winning CDs and far ranging commissioning programs, have become one of the most powerful ambassadors for contemporary music in the world, called by the New York Times ”A fiercely aggressive group, combining the power and punch of a rock band with the precision and clarity of a chamber ensemble.”
