An homage to Johann Sebastian Bach from a collective of adventurous musicians with a transformative mission

The Knights are a collective of adventurous musicians dedicated to transforming the orchestral and chamber music experience and eliminating barriers between audiences and music. Their three-season partnership with Dumbarton Oaks concludes with an homage to Johann Sebastian Bach—an exploration of music directly or indirectly influenced by the master, from modernist giants such as Igor Stravinsky, György Ligeti, and György Kurtág to American folk/pop icon Paul Simon. Joining the Knights in performance is our 2019 Early-Career Musician in Residence, violinist Robyn Bollinger.

Concerts take place on Sunday at 7:00 p.m. and Monday at 8:00 p.m.
