“Kronos has led and continues to lead what surely must be the longest unending revolution by any ensemble ever in music history.”

– Los Angeles Times

 On the heels of its second Grammy Award, San Francisco’s venturesome Kronos Quartet travels not just beyond standard musical genres, but into outer space itself in the first-ever DC performance of Sun Rings, composer and longtime Kronos collaborator Terry Riley’s 2002 multimedia masterwork commissioned by NASA and others. Combining live performance by the quartet and chorus with pre-recorded “spacescapes” and visual design by Willie Williams, Sun Rings is an inspiring meditation on humanity and our place in the universe.
