Kronos Quartet coming to Federal Way PAEC this weekend

The Performing Arts and Event Center will present Kronos Quartet at 8 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 4.

For more than 40 years, San Francisco’s Kronos Quartet — David Harrington (violin), John Sherba (violin), Hank Dutt (viola) and Sunny Yang (cello) — has combined a spirit of exploration with a commitment to continually re-imagining the string quartet experience, according to a press release. The quartet has become a celebrated and influential ensemble, performing thousands of concerts worldwide, releasing more than 60 recordings, collaborating with many of the world’s most eclectic composers and performers, and commissioning more than 900 works and arrangements for string quartet, according to the release.

A Grammy winner, Kronos is also the recipient of both the Polar Music and Avery Fisher prizes. The non-profit Kronos Performing Arts Association manages all aspects of Kronos’ work, including the multi-year education and legacy project Fifty for the Future: The Kronos Learning Repertoire. The project is commissioning — and distributing for free — the first learning library of contemporary repertoire for string quartet.

Tickets for Kronos Quartet range from $44 to $79 and can be purchased online at, by calling 253-835-7010 or visiting the patron services office from noon to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday at 31510 Pete von Reichbauer Way S., Federal Way.
