Tanya Tagaq & Kronos Quartet: Women's Voices

San Francisco’s own Grammy-winning Kronos Quartet continues its multi-year partnership and residency at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts with a program featuring the artistic voices of several contemporary women composers and performers. Women's Voices features works written specifically for the Quartet including the world premiere of a new piece written and performed by composer and musician Vân-Ánh Vanessa Võ, co-commissioned by YBCA and the Kronos Performing Arts Association, as well as three Bay Area premieres: Laurie Anderson’s Flow, Nicole Lizée’s Death to Kosmische, and Derek Charke’s Tundra Songs featuring Inuit throat singer Tanya Tagaq. Additional pieces will be announced later.
