The Kairos Quartet will perform Beethoven's Op. 18, No. 5 String Quartet in A Major, as well as music by Schnittke and Walton.

The ancient Greeks had two words for time, chronos and kairos. While the former refers to chronological or sequential time, the latter signifies a moment of indeterminate time in which everything happens—the supreme moment.

The Kairos String Quartet, established in 1993, has been the quartet-in-residence at Central Washington University since 1998. Violinists Carrie Rehkopf and Denise Dillenbeck, violist Timothy Betts, and cellist John Michel have extensive chamber music experience and have toured internationally. In addition to traditional concert performances, the group is committed to educational outreach and to performing in unlikely venues in which they seek to break down the barriers between audience and performers.
