USC to launch groundbreaking Arts Leadership program with event featuring Kronos Quartet

The University of Southern California will launch its new Arts Leadership Program (ARTL) on Thursday, April 24, with an evening lecture and performance by Kronos Quartet, one of the world’s most innovative performance ensembles.

The group will join ARTL program director Kenneth Foster, former executive director of San Francisco’s acclaimed Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, in a discussion on artistic vision and ideology behind creating new work. Kronos Quartet will discuss the group’s artistic process, as well as the impact of the tremendous body of new work commissioned specifically for the ensemble on new music as a whole.
