Carnegie Hall presents The Knights, a Brooklyn-based ensemble acclaimed for its “voracious musical appetite” (Chicago Classical Review). The eclectic program - featuring works by Vivaldi, Thomas Adès, Caroline Shaw and more - is just the kind audiences have grown to expect and love from this “adventurous orchestral collective” (The Baltimore Sun). The group is joined by Syrian clarinetist Kinan Azmeh for a musical journey on Wednesday, April 3 at 7:30 PM .
