BRIC Stands With Our Black Community

A Letter From Our President:

In this moment of profound reckoning for our country, I'm stunned by having witnessed so brazenly the ongoing consequences of whiteness being weaponized against Black bodies. I grieve for the Black lives taken from us: George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and many others. I'm also pained by the toll COVID-19 has taken on our country, our city, our borough, and our neighbors. KEEP READING >>

DR. DOG’s mix of crunching psychedelic fuzz, Beach Boys-esque harmonies, and shimmery pop hooks have made them both one of the most accessible and most beguiling rock bands of the last decade—their “sun-drenched, feel-good vibe belies songs as full of personal conviction.” (Paste) Given the Bandshell as a blank slate for the night, they’ve brought in the Brooklyn orchestra collective THE KNIGHTS to not only open the show, but also join them later and blow out the sound of their own catalogue to previously unexplored emotional frequencies.

THE KNIGHTS are an orchestra of friends from a broad spectrum of the New York music world who are deeply committed to creating original, engaging musical experiences. Led by an open-minded spirit of camaraderie and collaboration, they seek to engage with contemporary culture through vibrant performances that honor the classical tradition and their own passion for musical discovery.
