PLEASE NOTE: These concerts are on Monday & Tuesday.

In their Washington, D.C. debut, The Knights perform two Washington, D.C. premieres, including a concerto for santur (a classical Iranian hammered dulcimer), violin, and orchestra, featuring santur virtuoso Siamak Aghaei. The orchestra also performs Stravinsky's "Dumbarton Oaks" Concerto, in celebration of the 75th anniversary year of its premiere in our Music Room. Rounding out the evening is music by Bach, Haydn, and Reich. The concert will be recorded live for a commercial label.
