Wortham Center -- Society for the Performing Arts -- The Knights are composers, arrangers, singer-songwriters and improvisers evolved from late night chamber music reading parties with friends at the home of violinist Colin Jacobsen and cellist Eric Jacobsen. Joined for this concert by Chinese pipa virtuoso, Wu Man, the group performs a fascinating program including Lou Harrison’s “Concerto for Pipa and Orchestra,” works by French masters Debussy and Milhaud, Stravinsky’s “Dumbarton Oaks,” and a new work written and arranged by Wu Man. Driven by an open-minded spirit of camaraderie and exploration, the Knights are serious about expanding the orchestral concert experience for their audiences. But the truth is, for these busy and versatile musicians, each opportunity to perform together as the Knights is serious playtime. Enjoy. Tickets at 713.227.4SPA or www.spahouston.org.
