The October program of Spanish and Spanish-influenced composers is anchored by "Master Peter's Puppet Show," a work written in the 1920s by Manuel de Falla. However, instead of traditional puppets, The Knights' performance will be accompanied by live drawings created by Bushwick-based Syrian-Armenian visual artist Kevork Mourad.
The Knights are a Brooklyn-based orchestral collective, flexible in size and repertory, dedicated to transforming the concert experience. Led by brothers Colin and Eric Jacobsen and evolving from late night chamber music reading parties among a group of friends, The Knights engage listeners and defy boundaries with programs that showcase the players’ roots in the classical tradition and passion for musical discovery. This is the second year of a special partnership between BRIC and The Knights to grow orchestral music in Brooklyn. The Knights are Artists in Residence at BRIC throughout the fall and spring seasons, rehearsing works that will be performed at BRIC and elsewhere and engaging with the community in a multitude of ways.
