Resonance is proud to welcome a group dedicated to pushing the boundaries of the string quartet experience—Kronos Quartet. Over more than 40 years, this San Francisco–based foursome have performed works by a diverse array of composers—Ornette Coleman, Sigur Ros, and Bela Bartok. And they’ve collaborated with performers throughout the musical world—a Bollywood vocalist, an Inuit throat singer, and a Mexican rock band.
