Choose Between Two Options
- $75 for two front orchestra tickets to Kronos Quartet: Black Angels at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, October 20 ($120 value)
- $30 for two rear orchestra tickets to Kronos Quartet: Black Angels at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, October 20 ($50 value)
The Grammy Award–winning Kronos Quartet performs George Crumb’s “Black Angels”, subtitled “Thirteen Images from the Dark Land,” which was written in response to the Vietnam War—a fitting subject, since much of the museum touches on this same subject. It’s also an important work for the group, since after hearing Black Angels for the first time in 1973, David Harrington was inspired to form the Kronos Quartet.
After the performance, NPR’s John Schaefer will lead a discussion with the quartet’s members and Dr. Steven Bruns, an associate professor of music and expert on George Crumb. The panel will focus on music’s ability to reflect on issues of the past and present.

About Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum
What's more impressive than the Lockheed A-12 Blackbird—the world's fastest spy plane? Or a guided missile submarine? Well, how about a space shuttle? At the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, visitors will find all of this amid more than two dozen authentically restored aircraft, including the British Airways Concorde, the fastest commercial aircraft to cross the Atlantic Ocean. Through exhibitions, educational programming, and the well-rounded collection of technologically groundbreaking aircraft and vessels, the nonprofit institution provides visitors of all ages with an interactive journey through history to learn about American innovation and bravery. Professional guided tours are available to enhance the experience.
- The Building: the aircraft carrier Intrepid, which withstood kamikaze attacks and a torpedo strike during World War II
- Size: the carrier's four decks take two to three hours to explore, unless you're visiting in an F-14 Tomcat
- Eye Catcher: Inside the Space Shuttle Pavilion, the gigantic shuttle Enterprise hovers above several space-themed exhibits.
- Permanent Mainstay: The American guided missile submarine Growler welcomes guests into its dining room, attack center, and torpedo room (where some of the crew also slept).
- Don't Miss: The Lockheed A-12 Blackbird spy plane, the world's fastest military jet with a top speed of 2,269 mph and cameras that could shoot pictures from 80,000 feet in the air.
- Limited Time: Kids Week features real scientists teaching attendees of the wonders of polar ice caps, expoplanets, and more; each day of the event has unique interactive displays and children's book authors.
