The Knickerbocker Chamber Orchestra concluded its third season with an energetic production of Stravinsky's "The Soldier's Tale (L'histoire du soldat)," in collaboration with Jody Oberfelder Dance Projects. Performed June 9, 10 and 11, 2011 at Pace University's Schimmel Center for the Arts, The Soldier's Tale drew hundreds of dance and music fans each night, as well as unprecedented critical interest and appreciation.

Prior to the production, the Huffington Post featured the show, as did numerous local publications and citywide blogs. Thrilled by the enthusiastic response, KCO and JODP are hoping to mount future productions of The Soldier's Tale.
