Washington Performing Arts presents: Terry Riley's "Sun Rings"

  • Lisner Auditorium (map)

San Francisco’s famed Kronos Quartet travel into outer space (musically!) in the first-ever DC performance of Sun Rings, composer and longtime Kronos collaborator Terry Riley’s 2002 multimedia masterwork. Combining live performance by the quartet and chorus with pre-recorded “spacescapes” and visual design by Willie Williams, Sun Rings is a meditation on humanity and our place in the universe.
