Ecstatic Music Festival

February 5, 2018

“That’s the moment I live for. To see something happen that isn’t going to happen anywhere else.” — 2016 Ecstatic Music Festival concertgoer.

“Predictable” does not belong in your vocabulary at the Ecstatic Music festival. More than 75 composers, creators and performers from across the sonic spectrum come together for nine collaborative, one-night-only performances in Merkin Concert Hall, Kaufman Music Center.


The adventurous, Grammy-winning Kronos Quartet – one of the most celebrated and influential ensembles of our time – joins NYC’s acclaimed youth new music ensemble Face the Music (“a force in the New York new-music world” – New York Times) to perform new works written for Kronos’ “Fifty for the Future,” a commissioning, education and legacy project showcasing contemporary approaches to the string quartet that features new works by some of today’s foremost composers. The program also includes new works by Face the Music member composers. The two ensembles will perform separately and together.

Kronos Quartet & Face the Music are performing on Monday, February 5, 2018, at 7:30 PM.



EMF All Access pass: $170
