The Knights, the young chamber orchestra,  held their annual benefit, a concert and dinner, on May 13th  in Tribeca. Mela Haklisch, their board chair, extolled, "To everyone here we offer sincere thanks for your extraordinary partnership and support that empowers our musical innovation. We've many surprises for you tonight!"  and thus the orchestra launching into a stunning concert that included Mozart, Mendelssohn, Shostakovich as well as contemporary music. 

Pianist Inon Barnantan joined the orchestra on stage with Knights co-founder and conductor Eric Jacobsen welcoming him,  "Inon’s invested in the future of The Knights and what we’re doing". Virtuoso clarinetist Kinan Azmeh performed an original composition, "Wedding" and offered, “Falling in love is one of the true human rights that no one can take away from us. This music I hope is a little like that." Next came a new arrangement of the gospel "I'll Fly Away", led by Christina Courtin who led the audience to sing the refrain. Ending with a performance of  "The Big Noise from Winnetka", The Knights received a standing ovation.

Guests included board members Guillame Cuvelier, Audrey Francis, Carmela Haklisch, Graham Parker, Paul Sekhri, Kambiz Shekdar, Miranda Sielaff, and Gary Wasserman as well as guests Véronique Bich, Judith-Ann Corrente, Joanna Fisher, Thea Musgrave, Peter Mark, Susan Rose, Reni Rothschild, Julie Salomon, Connie Steensma, and Ann Ziff.
