The Knights is the name of a superb young chamber orchestra in New York.
Classical MPR has presented them at the Minnesota State Fair, and the core/founding string quartet, Brooklyn Rider, has also played at the fair, on Performance Today, at The Cedar, and the Stillwater Music Festival.
Now The Knights are the subject of a television documentary produced by the PBS station in NYC. It was broadcast last week, and now you can watch online, here. Look for glowing comments from Yo-Yo Ma, our own Fred Child from Performance Today, and LOTS of fantastic music making: incomparable performances of works by Beethoven, Schubert, Mozart, Copland, Jimi Hendrix, and more.
