Nancy J. Uscher, dean of the College of Fine Arts, warmly invites you to a very special event, A Thousand Thoughts: A Live Documentary with the Kronos Quartet, at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 11, in the Artemus W. Ham Concert Hall. Oscar-nominated filmmaker Sam Green tells the multi-decade and continent-spanning story of the Kronos Quartet while the group revisits its extensive body of work, performing music by George Crumb, Laurie Anderson, and John Zorn.
This wildly creative multimedia performance piece blends live music and narration with archival footage and filmed interviews with such prominent artists as Philip Glass, Tanya Tagaq, Steve Reich, Wu Man, and Terry Riley. Together on stage, Green and Kronos interact with the stirring cinematic imagery on screen to craft an important record and exploration of late 20th- and early 21st-century music. Transcending the typical live music and film event, this collaboration quickly becomes a meditation on music itself — the act of listening to it closely, the experience of feeling it deeply, and the power that it has to change the world.
All tickets to A Thousand Thoughts: A Live Documentary with the Kronos Quartet are just $10 and can be purchased through the Performing Arts Center box office or by calling 702-895-ARTS (2787).
A $1.50 facilities fee, in addition to the ticket price, is charged on all Performing Arts Center tickets. The box office is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday.
