The Knights* are an orchestra of friends from a broad spectrum of the New York music world who cultivate collaborative music-making and creatively engage audiences in the shared joy of musical performance. Led by an open-minded spirit of camaraderie and exploration, they expand the orchestral concert experience with programs that encompass their roots in the Classical tradition and their passion for musical discovery.
Led by conductor Eric Jacobsen, this past summer The Knights enjoyed a return engagement to the Ravinia Festival and a trio of concerts in Central Park. Their 2011/12 season highlights include collaborations with New York’s Museum of Modern Art and the Film Society of Lincoln Center. The orchestra tours Germany with cellist Jan Vogler in March and embarks on its first US tour in April. This past September, the group began a residency at New York Public Radio’s WQXR as the station’s first ensemble in residence, and the documentary film The Knights are Coming, produced by WNET/Thirteen, made its broadcast debut.
