Tango-Waltz-Foxtrot! We kicked up our heels with Gary S.Fagin and the KCO for “Sweet Sounds of Summer!"—a stylish selection of classical melodies for our dancing pleasure, including foxtrots, tangos and waltzes. We enjoyed the timeless tunes of Johann Strauss, Irving Berlin and other great song and dance masters!
Location: Hudson River Park's Pier 45 (cross at Christopher Street)
Gary S. Fagin and the KCO played toe-tappin' favorites at the breezy end of Pier 45 such as Scott Joplin’s "Maple Leaf Rag" and “The Entertainer;” Noel Coward’s “Sail Away” and the 1930’s hit “Red Sails In The Sunset;” as well as traditional Scottish reels and Aaron Copland’s rousing "Hoe-Down from Rodeo.”
Location: Schimmel Center
In this world premiere of Gary S. Fagin's new cantata for soprano, mezzo-soprano, baritone and orchestra, the KCO gave voice, hauntingly, to those most affected by the gun epidemic: victims of gun violence and their families.
Location: Museum of Jewish Heritage
An enchanting chamber music and dance work about a child whose toys come to life, Zaubernacht is Kurt Weill's earliest work for the stage. The KCO collaborated with the innovative choreographer Jody Oberfelder, who created original characters based on Weill's dynamic score.
The Knickerbocker Chamber Orchestra kicked-off of their Tenth Anniversary Season of performances in the Winter Garden at Brookfield Place.
