The Knights and Aaron Diehl

Pianist Aaron Diehl’s dual brilliance in jazz and classical music make him the ideal collaborator for The Knights in this sensational program probing the interconnectivity of these two sound worlds.

Diehl joins the ensemble for a pair of works that explore it best, Gershwin’s iconic, irresistible Rhapsody in Blue and genre-crossing trailblazer Mary Lou Williams’ Zodiac Suite. The program also features The Knights’ joyful rendition of Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No. 3, closing with Stravinsky’s dazzling, color-drenched Firebird Suite.
