Winter Garden waltz
The Knickerbocker Chamber Orchestras debut concert last Saturday night drew several hundred people to the World Financial Center Winter Garden. Left, guest Elizabeth Pitcairn plays a suite from the movie The Red Violin on her 1720 Stradivarius that shares the movies name, while orchestra founder Gary Fagin conducts. For the orchestras final number, Fagin invited the audience to waltz to On the Beautiful Blue Danube. Several dozen couples took him up on the offer, including Pitcairn and her friend Clayton Cowell.
