On Wednesday, April 4, The Knights wrapped up a two-day residency at WQXR with a performance of John Adams's Christian Zeal and Activity, the middle movement of his 1973 work American Standard, in The Greene Space. The performance features sound samples submitted by listeners as part of the orchestra's Found Sound Project.

The group performed Copland's Appalachian Spring, selections from Peruvian composer Gabriela Lena Frank's Leyendas: An Andean Walkabout and Debussy's orchestral arrangement of Satie's Gymnopédie.
