The Knights (BRIC Artists in Residence)
“one of Brooklyn’s sterling cultural products… known far beyond the borough for their relaxed virtuosity and expansive repertory.” (The New Yorker)
The Knights are a GRAMMY nominated, Brooklyn-based orchestral collective dedicated to transforming the concert experience. Led by brothers Colin and Eric Jacobsen, and flexible in size and repertory, The Knights engage listeners and defy boundaries with programs that showcase the players’ roots in the classical tradition and passion for musical discovery. The Knights are proud to bring their Home Season to BRIC for a third year, partnering to grow orchestral music in Brooklyn. The Knights are Artists-in-Residence at BRIC, rehearsing works that will be performed at BRIC House and elsewhere and engaging with the Brooklyn community.
The Knights' residency is made possible by generous support from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Additional funding is provided by public funds from the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, and by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
