Kronos Quartet  Behind the scenes with David, John, Hank and Sunny

Can you tell we're loving this! #latergram

As David has often said, "I would do this everyday of my life if I could. I'm so energized by having kids three feet away, just grooving to the music. I love that response. You may or may not get that in a traditional concert hall, but you will get that when you're playing in a classroom and a very intimate setting. It's so tactile. When you're sitting right there in the thick of it, you can see the rosin coming off the strings!"

This weekend, we had a wonderful time working with our dear friend composer Terry Riley, director François Girard, and guitarist and composer Gyan Riley to record parts of the soundtrack to Girard's upcoming film "Holchelaga terre des âmes," an epic drama exploring 750 years of history in the area of modern day Montréal, Canada.

Hanging with @johann_johannss while he was in town earlier this week! #latergram

Feels like yesterday... #Repost @nonesuchrecords
It was 15 years ago: @Kronos_Quartet released its album "Nuevo" on Nonesuch. It's a wild ride through 20th-century Mexican music, incorporating traditional and popular tunes, TV themes, even Esquivel's space-age lounge sounds, and this song, "El Sinaloense" by Severiano Briseño. Kronos captures "a Mexican-style ethos of ingenuity, humor, spirituality, and infinite variety," said the Independent. Get it now on & iTunes. Hear it on Apple Music & Spotify.

We had a blast performing for Mrs Quinn and Mr Rosenberg's 3rd Grade Classes at Francis Scott Key Elementary today!

Perfect day for a movie! #rain☔

Composer Jacob Garchik joined us today for rehearsal. We're learning his new score for Guy Maddin's new film "The Green Fog." We'll be playing it live at the movie's @sffilm premiere on Sunday, April 16, at SF's Castro Theatre. Link to @sfchronicle's interview w/ Maddin about the project in bio.
