The 21C Music Festival kicks off with a new work by Los Angeles-based Jherek Bischoff – composer, arranger, producer, and multi-instrumental performer hailed a “pop polymath” by The New York Times and a “phenom” by The New Yorker. Adventurous innovator Kronos Quartet combines a spirit of fearless exploration with a commitment to continually reimagine the string quartet experience.

Stay after the performance for a fascinating post-concert chat with the artists.
