Back to: Cultural Manifesto
Kronos Quartet / PASIC 2023
November 08, 2023
This week on Cultural Manifesto listen to an interview with violinist David Harrington, founder of the groundbreaking Kronos Quartet. They’ve been called the most important new music ensemble in the world — over 1,000 new works and arrangements have been commissioned for the group. Kronos Quartet will bring their 50th anniversary tour to West Lafayette, Indiana’s Loeb Theatre.
The Percussive Arts Society International Convention (PASIC) returns to Indianapolis this November. Every year, PASIC brings some of the greatest percussionists in the world to Indianapolis for a week of performances and clinics. We’ll celebrate PASIC by listening back to a 2019 interview with the late Elayne Jones, a member of the Percussive Arts Society’s Hall of Fame.
Jones was a prominent tympanist who performed with music luminaries including Leopold Stokowski and Duke Ellington. Throughout her career, Jones fought against racial and gender discrimination.
