Kronos Quartet: Music for Change

Cutting-edge, bold and deeply moving. The Kronos Quartet explores the social, political and cultural upheavals of American civil rights movements, performing works that highlight the legacy of artists in advancing social justice. The evening features Zachary J. Watkins' "Peace Be Till," a work inspired by the moment just before Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his “I Have a Dream” speech, as narrated by Dr. King's speechwriter and friend Dr. Clarence B. Jones; "Glorious Mahalia," Stacy Garrop's work honoring the life and times of gospel singer Mahalia Jackson; as well as arrangements of Abel Meeropol's "Strange Fruit" and John Coltrane's "Alabama."
