On Wednesday 11 May 2016, the Kronos Quartet spent the day at Trinity Laban. They spoke with composers, coached chamber music groups, and in the evening were presented with an Honorary Fellowship by Lord Lipsey, Chairman of Trinity Laban.
The presentation was followed by a special event, in which the quartet were interviewed by Head of Composition Dominic Murcott, and enjoyed performances by Trinity Laban students, staff and alumni.
David Harrington, Artistic Director, violinist and founding member of the quartet, said:
“The ceremony that was organized and produced by the faculty and students of Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance was a thrilling career highlight for us. We were all delightfully surprised, entertained and moved by the evening’s program, which included everything Kronos strives for as musicians. That this magical, perfect celebration followed the beautiful afternoon that we shared with the inspiring music students made it all the more special.”
