St. Paul, Minn. — Folks who heard The Knights in concert in Stillwater last month are still talking about it!

Members of The Knights are composers, arrangers, singer-songwriters and musical and theatrical improvisers who are also top-notch string players.

The Knights are set to perform with Yo-Yo Ma later this month and will be on tour in Germany in October.

It's a special privilege to feature their new recording of Aaron Copland's Appalachian Spring on this week's Regional Spotlight.
