From the site:
Lower Manhattans own professional classical music ensemble, The Knickerbocker Chamber Orchestra, continues its second season with a new twist on a classic work and a world premiere! Sergei Prokofievs childrens classic, Peter and the Wolf , is given new life when special guest Neil Gaiman, winner of the 2009 Newbery Award and author of Coraline, narrates this tale.
The evening proceeds with the world premier of And Bold to Fall Withal (The Voyage of Henry Hudson) composed by Gary S. Fagin for tenor and chamber orchestra. The work celebrates the 400th anniversary of Henry Hudsons sail into New York Harbor and features Jason Danieley who was described by The New York Times as the most exquisite tenor on Broadway.
