Kronos Quartet: Under 30 Project—Fifth Edition

Commissioning program designed to support promising young composers

The Kronos Quartet has announced the fifth edition of its biennial Kronos: Under 30 Project, a commissioning program designed to support promising young composers. During the past 10 years, four composers—Alexandra du Bois, Felipe Perez Santiago, Dan Visconti, and Aviya Kopelman—hailing from three different countries, have won commissions with Kronos. The winning composition of the fifth edition will premiere in spring 2014 as part of the ensemble’s 40th anniversary. 

Applications are open to all composers, regardless of nationality, who are under 30 years of age as of November 16, which is the deadline for application. The selected composer must be able to complete the new work by December 2013. Learn more at
