Cornetist Kirk Knuffke, named a "Rising Star" by DownBeat magazine, brings an all-star quartet of improvisers to The Charles Engelhard Court for a one-of-a-kind performance. Mr. Knuffke will play a cornet made by Karl Moritz Missenharter in 1900, a recent acquisition donated by the Schonberger Family Foundation. A brief tour of The André Mertens Galleries for Musical Instruments immediately follows the concert.
