After a whirlwind tour across the UK, Kronos is now headed to Toronto for The Royal Conservatory’s 21C Music Festival (Fifty for the Future Commissioning Partner). We join the lineup Wednesday, May 25 to perform Canadian premieres by Mark Applebaum and Nicole Lizée, along with several pieces from Kronos’ Fifty for the Future.
We are thrilled to have Tanya Tagaq joining us on stage to perform the world premiere of her Fifty for the Future composition, Snow Angel—Sivunittinni. Tagaq will also stay on to perform Nunavut, the piece she wrote for Kronos in 2006.

Since our last tour in the UK, we’ve gathered a bounty of new compositions and arrangements that we can’t wait to share. Kronos’ Fifty for the Future commissioning and education initiative makes its UK debut with Fodé Lassana Diabaté‘s Sunjata’s Time, Garth Knox‘s Satellites, and Aleksandra Vrebalov‘s My Desert, My Rose, each written for The Kronos Learning Repertoire.
An adventurous list of partners—including presenters, academic institutions, foundations and individuals—join forces to support this unprecedented project.
Help support Kronos' Fifty for the Future as we commission 50 new works designed expressly for the training of students and emerging professionals.
