The Knights Premiere Lisa Bielawa's Fictional Migrations
The world premiere of composer-vocalist Lisa Bielawa's Fictional Migrations (for string orchestra, flute and horn) is featured on the opening concert of the 2019 Naumburg Orchestral Concerts Summer Series. The Knights commissioned the string orchestra version of Fictional Migrations and will present it with soloists Alex Sopp (flute/piccolo) and Michael P. Atkinson (horn), both founding members of The Knights. The performance is at Temple Emanu-El, as the Naumburg Bandshell is currently closed for repairs. Of The Knights' premiere, Bielawa says, "These two soloists have, through the work I've done with The Knights over the years, been partnering and inspiring my work for over a decade."
Free with reservation.
