Knights with Wu Man, pipa

(2012/2013 Performing Arts)

Sat, Feb 23

“A chamber music experience in orchestral form.” – Yo-Yo Ma

Renowned pipa virtuoso Wu Man returns with progressive New York classical ensemble The Knights for a stirring evening of elegant classical and contemporary chamber orchestra works. A leading ambassador of Chinese music, Grammy-nominated Wu Man fosters projects that give the ancient pipa (a lute-like instrument) a new role in today’s music world. She’ll join The Knights, a “talented and vivacious” (The New York Times) ensemble of adventurous musicians from the New York music scene, who cultivate collaborative music making.
