Join ACMP and members of the Kronos Quartet on Saturday, April 15, 2023 at 2pm Eastern on Zoom.
We are looking for three adult amateur string quartets, who will learn one piece from the Kronos Quartet’s fascinating library of new works commissioned for the quartet’s 50th Anniversary: 50 for the Future.
If you would like to actively participate – your whole group will play together in one place (with a good internet connection) and join the class via Zoom. There will be a quick soundcheck one hour before the class.
The first step is to put your group together and choose a piece from the 50 for the Future Library, where you can listen to recordings and download parts and scores for FREE.
Then, please fill out this simple survey:
If you would like to play in one of the classes, feel free to choose from the whole library. However, some of the pieces are rather challenging. If you would like some guidance on finding more manageable works, members of KPAA’s educational team have created a shortlist of pieces from the collection on the easy-to-medium difficulty end of the spectrum:
SAXOPHONE ALERT: There is an arrangement of Fodé Lassana Diabaté’s piece Sunjata’s Time for saxophone quartet. Saxophonists will get first dibs on this work! Parts for the arrangement are not up on the Kronos site, but ACMP can obtain them for you.
Stay tuned! Once ACMP has all the ensembles lined up, we will share links to sign up as an audience member for each class. Both classes will also be live-streamed on Facebook and archived on the ACMP YouTube account.
