The Clark Art Institute has invited The Knights, an orchestra collective, to perform on the Fernandez Terrace, beside the museum's reflecting pool, on Sunday, Sept. 4. The two dozen musicians of the Brooklyn-based ensemble also will perform a family-friendly concert — intended as an introduction to orchestra music to engage young audiences — in the Clark's Manton Research Center auditorium at noon on Monday, Sept. 5.

Cécile McLorin Salvant keeps her audiences on their toes.
